American Indian Caucus Day- February 4, 2019
(more pictures available)

Students from the Nebo Title VI Program had the opportunity to participate in American Indian Caucus Day at the Utah State Capitol. Students were able to visit the Transcontinental Railroad Exhibit, witnessed Legislators discuss the proposed idea of having Utah Navajo Code Talker Day, and met with Tribal Leaders.

Many of the students said they enjoyed the field trip, and want to go again next year. Koa Lee from Springville Jr High mentioned that she enjoyed seeing Legislators unanimously vote to pass August 14, 2019, as Utah Navajo Code Talker Day.  Aiyana Sherman mentioned that her favorite part of the field trip was seeing all the beautiful artwork on the walls of the capitol. Two American Indian Seniors, Macy Redhouse from Salem Hills, and Andrew Yazzie from Springville High were selected to shadow a Legislator for the day.

Native Club Members,

The Nebo Title VI Program is looking for some volunteers on the evening of February 28th. We are looking for volunteers to help make fry bread, transport fry bread from the cooking area to the serving area, serve food, and help with clean up at the end of the event. Volunteer shifts will be about an hour in length. We need help starting from 6 pm until 8 pm that night. Email me at analysa.allison@nebo.edu if you are available to volunteer or sign up here

Thank you,
Analysa Allison

Parents and Guardians,

Nebo Title VI Students who are in 7th-12 grade, are invited to participate in the American Indian Caucus Day at the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City. Students will be able to visit exhibits, meet tribal leaders, tour the Capitol, and even see how a bill is passed. This is such a wonderful opportunity for your child to meet other American Indian students in Nebo School District, and also gives them a chance to be an active learner in their own education. We will have three pick up spots for this field trip, which will be in Payson, Spanish Fork, and Springville. If you would like your child to participate please return a signed permission slip to Eileen Quintana.  Your child should have recieved a permission slip through their school. If for some reason you did not recieve a permission slip, it can be downloaded here. Also, a copy of the agenda can be found here

We hope to see you there,
Title VI Staff
