Energy Incentive Challenge

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification.  We sent in Energy Star applications for 44 of our facilities and ALL 44 qualified.  This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared to other schools around the nation.  Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100.

This certification process for Energy Star is not an easy one.  Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Engery Use Index readings and calculations of each facility are taken into account.  This data, along with many other data points, are used to compare our K-12 facility to other K-12 facilities throughout the country.  We then receive  a score based on the grading criteria outlined by Energy Star. 

Way to go Nebo School District! We are an  Energy Star leader in the state.

Kindness Week

A new tradition was started at SFJHS this year by the student council. We celebrated the first annual Kindness Week. There has been so much going on in our world lately, and it is scary to think about what kids these days go through as they grow up. The best way to combat these types of events is to show kindness, acceptance, and love to our peers every day. We all have strengths and gifts to share, and that is what Kindness Week is all about.

On Tuesday, students wrote kindness notes and were challenged to walk up to someone, whether they knew that person or not, and give them a note. After pack time, the halls were full of smiling and laughing kids.

Wednesday was all about showing kindness to ourselves. The students created a paper chain which was full of statements about their strengths and amazing talents. It was kind of awkward at first because students didn't want to brag. But once they started, many students ended up doing way more than they were asked to. It was awesome to see kids light up as they realized they are special and unique individuals. The chain was hung up around the outside halls of the school to remind students about how special they really are.

Thursday was Compliment Day and students watched some funny videos about the importance of giving, but also receiving compliments. After that, brave students, and a few teachers, stood in front of white boards while others wrote good things about that person. When students could see what others wrote about them and see how others view them, their faces broke into grins and laughter.

Friday was the day to say thank you to those who may not always get the recognition they deserve. Classes talked about the importance of recognizing people for their hard work and showing our appreciation and gratitude. Each class made posters for the different faculty members in the school to let them know that we are grateful for their hard work every day.

We want to thank the counselors, the student council advisors, and the faculty for teaching the pack time lessons. And of course the students for their participation. Last week really was special, and we hope that a difference was made, even if it was small. One student admitted to their teacher "I just feel so good this week. I can't remember being this happy for a long time." And that's what it is all about.
