Key Club leaders recently prepared lunch (a monthly reward) for McKee Mentors and held drawings for prizes for mentors who consistently sacrificed personal intervention time to help fellow students in Math, AP Biology, and Medical Anatomy this year. This is a new service program designed and administered by Key Club students. We appreciated the support of local business donors: Pacific Horizon Credit Union and Magleby's. These businesses provided many prizes for our hard-working mentors. We hope to continue the program next year and add more opportunities and prizes for both mentors and mentees! If you know a business that would be interested in supporting the program next year, please contact Mrs. Jacobson, Key Club Advisor:

Summer Reading Opportunities


Nebo School District is gearing up for summer break. While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through OverDrive (http://*** The OverDrive collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?

This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read ( program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in our digital collection (http://*** for quick and easy unlimited access from June 7 – August 7, 2017.

How does it work?
To use OverDrive, students browse the secure website of more than 3,784 titles, log in with their school credentials, borrow, and enjoy on computers, tablets, smart phones, and eReader devices.

Encourage your student to check OverDrive out today!

Boredom is not an option this summer.
