"We have prepared an engaging and informative evening for Nebo School District families and community. The evening will provide hands on experience with authentic American Indian stories, songs, dances and food. A variety of teaching resources will be provided regarding indigenous people who have inhabited Utah for centuries. We invite Nebo Social Studies teachers and departments to partner with us to offer extra credit to their students to attend this Nebo School District cultural awareness evening. We will have a sign in sheet with attendance list for each school sent back to teachers participating in this collaboration.
