Nebo School District wants to showcase our Positive Energy and Kind employees. PEAK Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education. The award is administered by the Communications and Community Relations Department.

Our school's music teacher, Miss Priday, was nominated and selected to recieve the Peak Award.  Salem teachers say about Miss Priday, “Lindsay is the best music technician we have had. She has the best management skills with all grade levels. In dealing with kindergarten through sixth grade, she adapts her interactions and lessons to each group. She teaches the core because she understands the core with passion. Not only does Miss Priday teach during planning time, but she teaches early morning orchestra. My students over the years have looked forward to orchestra and loved their involvement, even when it is early in the morning. Our school supports Miss Priday. She is awesome! She is a very dedicated and caring music teacher – a true credit to the profession!”

Thank you, Miss Priday, for all you do for our students here at Salem Elementary!

Lindsey Downey, Librarian, Spanish Oaks Elementary
Nominated by: Sherri Peterson, Kali Brown, DeAnn Carter, Angela Lindstrom

“Lindsey is an incredible librarian. She spends hours planning and preparing lessons that are educational as well as motivating for the students. She plans the lessons to correspond with CORE concepts taught in each grade level, bringing in technology and guest speakers to engage students. Her library is darling, and she has the students help her do the decorating. She has students spotlight books they have checked out and loved, so peers can enjoy them as well. Lindsey is the best librarian in the elementary schools for the past 30 years.”

“There is no task too small or trivial. Lindsey is willing to help and share her talents at every turn. She excels at communicating library expectations to all teachers, while helping each to be successful and feel supported. The library is truly her ‘classroom’. Everything she does is to ensure learning is happening for each of our students.”

“Lindsey is doing an awesome job with our students in helping them learn how to use the library and to be excited about going to library. She has the library so organized and decorated so it's inviting. She's also so willing to help with anything that is going on in the school. She's PEAK through and through!”

“Mrs. Downey has transformed our library into a fun, educational, kid-friendly room. She has great ideas on how to teach our students about how the library works. She uses games and art to help reinforce the curriculum so that the students not only learn in their classrooms, but also in the library. She is very friendly and helpful. We love her!”

4th Graders Help Kindergarteners ROCK!

Taylor Elementary News - Wed, 03/08/2017 - 7:20pm

Fourth grade students buddied up with our kindergarteners to study the properties of rocks! Students measured, weighed, scratched, floated and drew different aspects of their rocks. This is a great way for students to collaborate with each other because both grade levels study rock properties as part of their core. Many students discovered their rocks could float, had rough texture and were all different shapes and sizes! Way to go kindergarteners for using the scientific method!!!

Mr. Duncan Shares Reflections of Leadership Day

Cherry Creek Elementary News - Wed, 03/08/2017 - 2:04pm

Mr. Duncan took a few minutes to sit down with me this afternoon and share some of his reflections from yesterday's 3rd annual Leadership Day. To hear the humility and gratitude in his voice was touching. Here's a brief summary of what he shared with me:

The turn-out from parents and community members was overwhelming. In case you didn't turn around, there was standing room only in the back of the auditorium. To take time on a Tuesday afternoon is difficult for many families and working individuals. This alone was a huge sign of support.

Synergy. It's real. Every student at Cherry Creek played a part in Leadership Day, whether on stage or in the days and weeks leading up to it. The air has been full of energy, excitement, and cooperation. All of the teachers were on board and managed all of the rehearsal time and schedule changes without complaint. Not a single bad attitude in the building.

Hopefully every student, parent, and guest could see that at Cherry Creek, we value every single student as an important person who has inherent talent and worth. The feedback from parents was overwhelming and personal. It is clear that the Leader In Me program in fact has made a difference in the lives of our students, and that makes all of this worth it.

Thank you again to all who came, contributed, and shared in our successes.

Ballet West

Salem Elementary News - Wed, 03/08/2017 - 11:58am

 

You may have read our post about Ballet West visiting our school last week, but there was more to it than just that... Ballet West has a dear friend here at Salem Elementary.Previous to the Ballet's performance at our school, one of our Salem Elementary students had an extraordinary experience with Ballet West Dance Company.  Emmalene Meyers was nominated by Lily Badger, a student at Foothill Elementary to be on RANDOM ACTS, a BYU television program that surprises people with special wishes. Lily knows that Emmalene is a dancer at heart.  Emmalene received the royal treatment at the Capital Theater as the guest of honor of the Ballet Company, to watch preparations and a performance of  "Sleeping Beauty".  Then when the company came to Salem Elementary for an assembly, Emmalene was greeted by the dancers as a dear and forever friend.  So, stay tuned to RANDOM ACTS programing in May to see the magical experience that she had.

Wednesdays have become a favorite day for fifth grade students at Park Elementary.  Students have been learning from Officer DeWitt from Spanish Fork Police Department about the D.A.R.E program.  This program teaches students about things such as the importance of drug and alcohol resistance, peer pressure, and making good choices.  Officer DeWitt has provided several activities for students, including a demonstration by the K9 Officers and their dogs.  Officer Grover and Officer Smith brought the K9’s to the school to show the students their incredible dogs and discussed what they do each day.  These dogs were amazing!  

Students are looking forward to D.A.R.E graduation, which will be held on March 20th.
