Students had the opportunity to learn the basics of CPR and other emergency medical procedures yesterday when a Spanish Fork EMT came to visit. There was a lot of good information that is important for students to know.
Yesterday the SFHS Choirs spent the afternoon caroling around Temple Square! SFHS Singers performed at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and the North Visitors' Center, then Concert Choir joined them for their final performance at the Assembly Hall. If you missed hearing them at Temple Square, you have another chance to hear them sing at the Combined Christmas Gala next week December 12th and 13th. Go get your tickets at the SFHS Finance Office today!
In Mr. Madsen’s 7th-grade science class, students tested the Popsicle stick bridges they had made over the course of the week.
The bridge had to span over a foot, and you could use up to 100 Popsicle sticks. They were held together with glue. The goal was to hold 1 kilogram, and students just stacked weights on until it broke.
Students were learning about building design against natural disasters. In the image, you can see some high scores. The highest score was 117.5 pounds, which was made by Brighten B. and Elijah L.
Throughout the winter months, there is an increased possibility of school disruptions due to inclement weather. This post is intended to give you a brief overview of what to expect during an inclement weather event.
Some have asked what Nebo School District's procedure is regarding inclement weather. Simply put, Nebo School District will be open and functioning normally throughout the winter unless parents/guardians and employees are notified otherwise.
The decision to cancel or delay the start of school is a very complicated process. Nebo School District is a large district covering over 1,300 square miles. Conditions in one area of the district can be very different from conditions in another part of the district. Weather is unpredictable and can change quickly.
On occasion, weather may be so extreme the district may close schools or implement a Delayed Start. If a Delayed Start is called at your particular school, a notice will be sent via phone, text, or email and your school's starting time will be postponed for two hours. Although the start time will be delayed two hours, we will work to ensure that the school itself will be open by the regular start time in order to accommodate working parents and students that arrive early.
Unfortunately, experience has taught us that there is no single decision that will accommodate the desires of every patron and employee. That being the case, Nebo District is supportive of individual decisions regarding safe travel during inclement weather. Please evaluate your individual situation regarding travel to school. The option to keep children home when weather conditions are severe is always at the parents' discretion and schools have been asked to respect and honor parent decisions. Make-up schoolwork may be necessary, but schools will accommodate students on the timely completion of required assignments or tests.
If you have questions regarding the status of your school during inclement weather, please visit our website at www.nebo.edu. You will find a link on the left side of the home page that will take you to our Inclement Weather page. We plan to post inclement weather decisions on our site no later than 6:30 a.m. on the morning of the event.
Thank you for your support of our district and your local schools. Working together we can make this a better world for the students of Nebo School District.
This week Miss Warren’s College and Career Awareness class talked about food stylists and food scientists. They learned all about what they do.
Seventh graders made their own ice-cream. They got to design, style, and taste test their own ice cream, just like a food scientist and a food stylist. Students chose their own ice cream flavor and toppings. Some of the many toppings were Oreos, cookie dough, M&M’s, chocolate, and caramel to drizzle over the top of it all.
Best of all, students ate their own delicious ice cream while learning about how it was made. It was a great day of learning and fun for Miss Warren’s 7th-grade students!

Darren Major, a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and a well know music composer and friend of Mrs. Lewis, let our Diamond Fork Choir be the first to perform his newest Christmas compostions tonight at our Christmas concert. The beautiful "One Baby Boy, " Bethlehem," and "O Come Emanuel" brought the Christmas spirit to the audience in this inspirational choir concert. Mr. Majors was a special guest at the concert this evening to hear our choir members perform his work. He was thrilled with their performance.
Winter Captains Academy took place on Wednesday, Nov. 29th. Student-athletes from all the junior high schools and high schools in our district attended.
Captains from our boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, Isaiah Jones and Macie Clark, and wrestling team captain Tate Sorensen, all had a great experience. They learned from many people about different things that it takes to be a leader. Dustin Smith, who founded the program especially for athletes, was the final speaker. His message had a big impact on all that were in attendance.
This was a great opportunity for our student Athletes!

Students in 5th and 6th grade wanted to thank Mr. Gasser for all his hard work. These students thought of this on their own. Comments from these students include "he has a really hard job", "he picks up garbage every single day", "can we thank him because he has a stinky job in the lunchroom?"
We are proud of our Sierra Bonita students for thinking of our custodian!
