Submitted by shelley.heaton on Wed, 06/29/2022 - 09:23

CAPS now has over 80 affiliates in 4 countries! #NeboCAPS is thrilled to be able to stand side by side with these amazing educators who are working to transform learning in and out of the classroom.

CAPS Summer Huddle 2022, St Louis, is a great success so far for Mrs. Hair and Mrs. Hansen. From meeting Erik Lindbergh, grandson of Charles Lindbergh, to new friends from Kuwait and around the globe, we are learning how to bring community into the classroom and profession-based learning to our next group of NeboCAPS students this fall.

Several students previously earned this grant including McKay Ewell (4k drone) and Akaysha Murphy (cosmetology supplies).  In total our Business CAPS students have received $6,000 to pursue their learning!

The Advanced Learning Center in Salem Utah was recently awarded a $6,000 scholarship by the Gene Haas Foundation.

Gene Haas Foundation’s Scholarship Grant program’s primary goal is to build skills in the manufacturing industry by providing scholarships for CNC machinist training and CNC machining-based engineering programs and support of FIRST Robotics Teams.

The ALC is excited to award scholarships to Jones Lewis, Isaac Webster, and Logan Kennard. Each of these students has been very involved in the FIRST Robotics Team at the ALC and they will be continuing their education in related fields.  The recipients are excellent students that have contributed to the success of the FIRST Robotics Team and other programs here at the ALC.

Unfortunately, change happens and with that sometimes we lose teachers and faculty and that is always a sad day for us.

This year we had a few of our faculty and staff leave, for either different positions, or for fun new adventures in life.

Thank you to these wonderful individuals and the impact you have made on those you have touched with your service here at the ALC.  You will be missed, but we also wish you well on your new adventures.

Submitted by amy.ewell on Fri, 06/03/2022 - 11:37

Have you ever seen a sea of seventh graders? We have! The recent Nebo CTE Expo was a flurry of fun for our ALC teachers. Mr. Peery, Mrs. Hair, Mr. Harmer, Mr. Adams, Mr. Eastmond, Mr. Nielsen and Mrs. Ewell all participated to show off some of the skilled and technical courses our school has to offer.

Highlights included displays of ALC Collision painted cars, Hot Wheels giveaways all day long from Mr. Adams' automotive repair class, robotics demonstrations from our First Robotics Team, beautiful furniture and woodworking displays from Mr. Nielsen's class, and of course the Nebo Bottle CAPS soda bus serving almost 2,000 seventh graders at the event. Even Nebo School District Superintendent Rick Nielsen attended the event and sampled our soda and visited the many booths!
