Congratulations to Vicki Hatch who is the winner of the Crystal Apple Award this year! The Crystal Apple is an award given by Horace Mann in recognition of teaching excellence. Mr. White, our Drama teacher said that "Vicki is one of the finest educators I've ever had the privilege of working with. She is so incredibly organized in all of her classes. Whenever I've needed assistance with class ideas, lesson plans, even proof reading some of my Masters degree work, she's been there. She supports all of us at this school. I always know I can count on her coming to see my shows and supporting our students. She's amazing in all that she does, and I value working with her every day!"

Last Thursday, Kate Hansen visited our 8th grade students during their Health classes. Kate competed in the Luge at the Socci 2014 Olympics. She spoke to our students about resiliency and to never give up. Kate talked about some of the difficulties she had to make it to the Olympics, including breaking her foot during the Olympic trials. Through positive thoughts and motivation she was able to make it to the Olympics. Thank you Kate for taking the time to visit with our students!
Today all of our music students were able to attend a presentation by the Nebo Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. This group has members from all of the High Schools and some 9th grade students in the Junior Highs. We have two students participating: Nicole Litster and Tucker Bateman. They rehearse together every Monday for 2 hours and perform in 4 concerts each year. They will also perform at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City in March. They put on a great performance and we appreciate them visiting us at Mt. Nebo!
