Spanish Oaks Elementary - Heidi Dimmick
“I would like to thank the Nebo Foundation for the grant for books to add to our guided reading library in the M-P levels, as well as higher level books that are appropriate for third-grade students. Third-grade is a pivotal year where students go from learning to read to reading to learn. It is so important to help them find books that they love. When students are exposed to books that are in a series that they like, then they are more likely to continue reading the series. This helps students to love reading. Thank you for making this possible!” exclaimed Heidi Dimmick, third-grade teacher at Spanish Oaks Elementary.
Nebo Education Foundation board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues, and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students. The Nebo Education Foundation functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses.
Foundation past president, Kristina Christensen, said, "It is a pleasure to receive the grant applications and see how remarkable and creative the Nebo District teachers are. The Nebo Education Foundation facilitates these grant monies to help teachers realize their ideas and the students' potential. Our foundation board gets to see a glimpse at how well our teachers are instructing our students."
