Did you know that when you shop for the holidays at  smile.amazon.com/ch/87-0546418(link is external), AmazonSmile donates to Nebo Education Foundation? Nebo Education Foundation has received $3,875 through this program.

One hundred percent of these monies fund teacher grants to help supplement equipment and supplies for students. 

Thank you for supporting the Nebo Education Foundation by shopping at smile.amazon.com instead of just Amazon.

Maple Ridge kindergarteners have been learning about our community helpers. They got a visit from the Mapleton Fire Department and students learned about fire safety, what to do in an emergency and the fire fighters showed all their equipment and trucks. The Spanish Fork K-9 unit also came and talked to the students about safety and what they do to keep the community safe. Thank you Mapleton Fire Department and Spanish Fork Police Department!

Submitted by sara.matis on Tue, 10/06/2020 - 20:11

Today maple Ridge students had a special visitor named Speedy for Red Ribbon Week! Speedy, a Belgian Malinois, is a retired police dog. His owner, Patrick, was a police officer and Speedy was his partner. They worked together to help track down drugs and keep people safe. Ask your student what they learned about Speedy today. A big thank you to our Maple Ridge PTA for arranging Patrick and Speedy's visit. We enjoyed having them in our school!
