Nebo School District's recent "snow day" provided 4th grade students in Mrs. Robbin's class to continue their Christmas spirit right in to the new year. Students wrote and performed the play, "How Hairbrush Saved Christmas" for parents and other school students for several days after coming back after Christmas break. This delightful activity incorporated state core objectives in both the language arts and fine arts areas, and the kids had a blast doing it.! Great job students!!

This year, Mrs. Trevenen's first grade class performed the annual Sage Creek Library Christmas play.
