Parents, Students, and Friends –
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It’s a brand new year and we are in the final stretch Term 2. Out of our 1,242 students currently enrolled, we have 90 students who have one or more failing grade. We are working with each student to give the assistance they need to complete work and master the content so they will be ready for next semester. You can help by checking your child’s grade in SIS Aspire and working with them at home to complete their assignments. Our continued goal is to ensure every student has the help they need and understands the concepts of each class in order to progress to the next level. We appreciate all you do to help us with that goal. 2018 is going to be great!
SFJHS and our chapter of National Junior Honor Society would like to thank everyone for their generous support of this year’s Penny Wars! It was a fun and friendly competition with many classes competing to be the one with the most donations. Under the supervision and organization of NJHS students, we raised over $3,500.00 for Nebo Credit Union’s Warm the Soles program. The Credit Union gave over 900 pairs of shoes to Nebo District students in need this year. Check out the school district’s story here. NJHS looks forward to many service projects this year!
Mr. Lawrence will be accepting new applications for National Junior Honor Society beginning January 22nd. We are inviting 7th graders to live the Lobo Way and apply as well. See Mr. Lawrence on January 22nd for an application.
Schedule changes for 2nd Semester will start on January 2nd. Changes will only be made if there is space available, please see your counselor prior to the semester starting. There will be a $5 fee for class changes.

Abraham Figueroa – 9TH GRADE
Mt. Nebo Jr. High School
Abraham Figueroa, a 9th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, was nominated to receive the Payson City Mayor’s Award for the month of December. Abraham is a hard working student at MNJHS. We are thrilled to have him receive this award from the Payson City Council.
"Abraham is an exceptional young man. Although new to our school this year, he is friendly to everyone. Teachers, students, and others involved at Mt. Nebo Junior High comment on his willingness to work, his kindness, and his can-do attitude. Abraham is conscientious about his learning and grades. He completes all assigned work, including extra credit, on time. He fixes mistakes on assignments and tests to help him understand better. Although Abraham is focused on doing his best, he is also willing to help others achieve. Fluent in both English and Spanish, Abraham patiently works with other Spanish-speaking students to help them understand the math. Because of his dedication to learning, his compassion for others, and his commitment to being his best, I expect to see Abraham do impressive things in his life!" - MNJHS Faculty Member
