Or­chard Hills El­e­men­tary – Heather Bond First-Grade Teacher

“I am so grate­ful to have re­ceived a grant from the Nebo Foun­da­tion for the pur­chase of a di­vided rug for our first grade class­room! Much of our in­struc­tion in first grade takes place on the car­peted area, and hav­ing a de­fined space for each child on the rug re­duces man­age­ment is­sues, helps stu­dents fo­cus, eases class­room tran­si­tions and fa­cil­i­tates learn­ing. Hav­ing this won­der­ful rug will al­low me to spend less time on man­age­ment and more time on in­struc­tion. Thank you, Nebo Foun­da­tion!” stated Heather Bond.

We are so pleased and grate­ful for this gen­er­ous grant!” replied Susan Crook, Hai­ley Poulsen, Erica For­diani, and An­naMarie Franks.
