Principal's Message

Mrs. Croymans' family
Welcome to Nebo Elementary! 
Message From the Principal:
Everyone who teaches is “called” to education in some way and at some time. We all get that “calling”. Some get it early in life and others, like myself, get it when we least expect. As a young child, I was taught the importance of education. My mother loved to learn and passed her love of learning on to me. As I grew older, I realized that my passion for learning went deeper -- I also had a passion to work with children!
My personal belief is that all students are capable of being learners and learning information. Learning is a skill that we all possess. However, my belief is that learning may look different for every individual and it is our responsibility to identify and address the cognitive learning style of each student. A successful educator will prepare lessons that are beneficial to every student. Educators plant seeds of “cool” knowledge into their students’ lives each and every day. Some seeds need extra watering and need special attention. A successful educator can and will identify those needs and create fun and innovative ways to provide support and information to those students.
Principal Jennifer Croymans

News & Announcements

Book Fair is Coming Soon!

The book fair will be here from Thursday, September 19th, until Friday, September 27th. Students and their families will be able to shop after each grade level Family Breakfast. Students will also be able to shop during their library specials day.

This year Scholastic is offering a new way to pay, eWallet. Each student's family can set up an "eWallet" for their student and load money straight into that account for them. This is a great way for parents to send money with their student without having to worry about their student keeping up with it or it getting lost. It is also a great option for the parent that does not always have cash. Click on the link above if you would like to know more about eWallet!
