Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Easter is always an exciting time for the students at Nebo School District’s Bridges Transition School for special needs students who range in age from 18 to 22. Every year at Easter time, the Bridges students deliver a generous donation to the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce for the local Easter egg hunts. The funds used to purchase these donations comes from money they have earned at various jobs in our community. Some students even bring additional donations from home. It is an opportunity for students to say “thank you” to their community.

The students at Bridges have the opportunity to receive on-the-job training at participating businesses throughout the Nebo community. At these jobs, students develop a work ethic and skills that will help them to secure permanent employment in their future. With the help of local businesses and citizens, Bridges is a successful and rewarding program.

This year, the students received a special surprise from the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. A $150 donation was made to the school’s “Healthy Hearts Program.” This program was created in an effort to raise funds to purchase adult tricycles for the school. During the school year, students learn to ride these bikes and students that qualify will have an opportunity to enter a drawing to take the bike home at the end of the year. This has been an exciting opportunity for Bridges students.
