Mary Jane Warner, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, teacher, and friend passed away March 12, 2022. Mary Jane taught in the Nebo School District for 28 years. The majority of her career was at Legacy, a school for young mothers. She taught Foods, Interior Design, Health, and Special Education; she managed their library and was the director of their in-school day care program.
Students had the opportunity to hear from Stephanie B., who graduated from Legacy in 2017 with five kids. She described herself as a “recovering quitter.” She shared her story of getting pregnant as a teen, trying an alternative school setting, and quitting to get a job. Over the next 20 years, she worked many entry-level jobs for minimum wage. During that time, she tried to get her GED and quit, she tried to complete packets for school credit, but gave up.
Thursday, February 24, 2022 - 3:00 – 6:00p.m. Legacy provides unique opportunities during Parent-Teacher Conference time. Beyond communicating progress, grades and missing assignments, students are able to use the time as an intervention period to get help making up unfinished work. In addition to this assistance, for each hour students attend the conferences, they are able to reverse an unexcused absence, up to three.
We were able to experience something remarkable thanks to generous donors who made this field trip possible. We were able to visit Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience. Mrs. Kristi Murdock shared her knowledge of Vincent Van Gogh with us prior to our trip and gave us some background information. He is considered to be one of the best Post-Impressionist painters. Van Gogh is known for his use of color and bold, dramatic brush strokes which expressed emotion and added a feeling of movement to his works. This exhibit used projection to make the artwork come alive.
