The Nebo Education Foundation board awarded a grant this month to Lori Marett our Librarian at MJHS. The Foundation Board functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses as well as fundraisers where all the money goes to educate students in Nebo School District.  

Mrs. Marett commented about her grant being awarded by the Nebo Foundation.  "I was a little worried about writing a grant, but the directions were clear and easy to follow.  I ordered three classroom subscriptions to various Scholastic magazines.  These magazines provide current, interactive information to our students.  Along with the physical magazine comes an interactive website that students can log into as well.  Already I have had several teachers come and ask for the magazines.  English, science, social studies, and geography teachers are currently using them in their classroom.  In addition to having these collections available, I also type up the table of contents for each magazine on a Google Document so that each teacher has ready access to the each magazine’s content.  It has been an amazing addition to our regular curriculum.  Both teachers and students are excited about having access to this pertinent and current information.  After keeping the magazines in the library collection, the classroom sets are then given to individual teachers to use permanently in their classrooms.  I am grateful for the Nebo Foundation’s help in getting this great resource for our school."
