Nibley Park School Participates in Bees Ball Game
It was a perfect day for going out to "the old ball game." The sun was shining, the sky was blue and you could hear the crack of a ball when it punched a ball over the outfield fence. Nibley Park students where there to watch the game. Sponsored by Prevention Dimensions, more than 12,000 students filled the bleachers to watch the Salt Lake Bees play the Omaha Storm Chasers.
A flag presentation was put on by students from area schools, including Salt Lake City School District’s Nibley Park and Newman Elementary. Kids carried out and danced with large stars made from parachute materials to start the game.
Utah Education Network reports that “Prevention Dimensions is Utah's Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities curriculum, which supports the Utah State Office of Education pre-kindergarten through 12th grade health core. The program strives to give students a solid foundation of effective violence and substance abuse prevention skills. The program began in 1982 as a joint effort between the Utah State Division of Substance Abuse, Utah State Department of Health, Utah State Office of Education and Utah State PTA.”
