Feel The RoarBlock Number: 219
"FEEL THE ROAR" LATEST QUILT BLOCK
On Friday April 14, 2017, Nebo Elementary School had its second block, #219, installed. The first, “A Child’s Heart”, (#114, 105 blocks later) was put up near the front entrance doors of the school back in April of 2012.
This new 6x6 foot block, “Feel the Roar” is on the opposite back side of the cafeteria wall facing the parking lot. It is an impressive figure of a large bear and brightens up the plain brick wall. The title of it was arrived at by allowing the students in each class to vote on their favorite one out of three offered. “Feel the Roar” was a winner.
It is fitting as it illustrates and carries out the Nebo Bears slogan “We are the bears hear us roar, we are the bears see us soar, we are the bears feel the roar”. The school’s “roar” stands for:
R: respect self others and property,
O: outstanding effort,
A: achieve success,
R: responsible and safe Mike Lucas and Alan Scholl installed the block and Jill Lucas presented the Certificate of Authenticity to Principal Joyce Poplin. Ms. Poplin has taught at Nebo elementary for twenty-four years and has been Principal for sixteen, a total of forty years there. She will be retiring this year.
