Jacob Theodosis is a sixth grade student at Spanish Oaks Elementary. He was chosen as the Daily Herald's Utah Valley Student of the Week.

"Jacob is not only an excellent student, but an amazing older brother," said Theodosis' father Nicholas. "He often will take care of younger siblings without being asked when parents are sick. I could not ask for a better son."

Theodosis enjoys football, basketball, orchestra, robotics and Boy Scouts. He loves reading, especially action adventure and biographies, and has a passion for U.S. history, math and technology. He has been an after-school math tutor to younger students at his school. He also won an award for reading minutes this year.

In the future, Theodosis would love to study history or engineering. His top three school choices are Stanford, BYU and University of Utah.

"He has a passion for knowledge and a maturity that is far beyond his age," Nicholas Theodosis said. "Jacob's ability to care for and demonstrate compassion for fellow students, neighbors, and family make him an excellent candidate for recognition."  Congratulations, Jacob ... Well done!

Barnett 6th graders graduate from NOVA!

For 13 weeks Barnett's  sixth graders have participated in lessons taught by Payson Police Officer Mark Bell. 

NOVA's mission statement is “NURTURING youth to seek out positive OPPORTUNITIES, internalize good VALUES, and to accept ACCOUNTABILITY for their choices in life."

The NOVA program focuses on the following principles:

  • Take advantage of good opportunities that come your way.

  • Accept responsibility for you choices and actions.

  • "Study the situation." In other words, think before you do something.

  • "What's right is right, and what's wrong is wrong." Don't get these things mixed up.

  • Make good "lifetime decisions" now and live by them.

  • Choose to have a "hero paradigm". This means that you always try to do your best, and create things of value for yourself and others.

  • Obtain as much knowledge as possible, and use that knowledge to become the most successful person you can be.

  • Choose to be a person who is kind, caring, and friendly, not a person who is angry, violent, and filled with hate.

  • Be careful of what you choose to put into your brain. If you put good things in, good things will come out.

The program is designed to help youth understand and deal with drugs, gangs, violence, bullying, anger management, internet safety, and negative media exposure.

All of the sixth grade teachers and students would like to thank officer Bell for his patience and dedication to help them learn tools to help them succeed in life!
