“The Nebo Education Foundation just awarded a $1,000 grant towards ten new Chromebooks to our Third Grade students at Wilson Elementary in Payson, Utah. We are so grateful for the opportunity to have these Chromebooks in our classrooms and would like to thank the Nebo Education Foundation. The Chromebooks will allow us to let the students have access to valuable programs such as Reflexmath, and Pearson SuccessMaker Language Arts and Math. They will also allow us to use state programs like Utah Compose for writing. These Chromebooks will be used on a daily basis for many years and will be a great asset providing individualized instruction to each student. We know that the education of each child in Nebo School District is the top priority of the Nebo Education Foundation. We are so grateful to them for awarding us this grant!” exclaimed Celeste Fisher & Tiffany Cook, third-grade teachers at Wilson Elementary.
“As you could tell, by my sheer excitement when you came into my classroom, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the generous donation that was given to my class for 10 Chromebooks! I was shaking and nearly crying when I found out, and I cannot keep from smiling when thinking of what a difference it will make in my classroom. I currently have several online programs that will strengthen and enrich the learning of students through ALL of the curriculum. The students have shared time with the resources that are available, but this will make a marked difference. The kids all cheered in the class when they found out, and they haven't stopped talking about it since you left. I hope I can convey what a blessing this is and how this will allow more access within the classroom for greater opportunities to learn. This is so important because many students in my class have no access to computers within the walls of their own homes, making it even more important to expose them to opportunities to use them at school. A million thanks,” stated Mrs. Alison Snow and her very grateful fifth-grade class at Wilson Elementary.
“I am so excited and appreciative to the Nebo Foundation for the generous technology grant to purchase more Chromebooks for the classroom. Chromebooks will be used every day to enhance the learning of fourth-grade students, not only this year, but for years to come. We will use them as we study about Utah in both social studies and science, master multiplication and division facts, improve reading, differentiate math concepts, and complete writing projects. Thanks again for your kindness and for all you do to support the students and teachers of Nebo School District,” said Karen Hanson, fourth-grade teacher at Wilson Elementary.
