Congratulations to Alexis Vasquez and LaShelle Hernandez for being nominated as our MNJHS Panthers of the Day on Thursday, September 21, 2017.

Several team captains represented Mt Nebo's fall sports and student government at Nebo School District's Captain's Academy. Great job captains: Grace Marsh-cross country, Richelle Nielsen-student government, Leah DeBart and Livy Chandler- girl's tennis, Max Iverson-golf, Hadley Mason-cross country.
The purpose of the Captains’ Academy is to promote sportsmanship between the schools. This goal is realized through the captains and leaders working together at the academy to promote better relations between the students and athletes, to develop leadership through the academy activities, and to develop relationships with coaches and administrators as they present at each academy.
Michelle Best, with Intermountain Healthcare, talked with the leaders about healthy lifestyles and especially how important sleep is in staying healthy. Athletes are more prone to health issues an anxiety because of lack of sleep.
Brodie Berg, a 1990 Oregon State High School Golf Champion and currently a firefighter, led a discussion about great leaders. He emphasized that great leaders have character. Talent is a gift but character is a choice. Brodie also mentioned that great leaders are competent, accomplish more than others, inspire others, are generous, build relationships, take responsibility, and have passion to name a few attitributes.
ABC 4 sports director, Wes Ruff, introduced Sportsmanship. Wesley grew up in Springville and enjoys golf. His message included the importance of character, attitude, and having pride in your team.
Steve Dudley, athletic director at Spanish Fork High, led a discussion on sportsmanship and reporting. The various sports captains took the word “sportsmanship” and came up with descriptors for each letter and reported back to the group.
Troy Bohling, student services coordinator and organizer of these academies, said, "Captains’ Academy has provided a powerful forum for athletes and school leaders to discuss and implement essential leadership traits and the value of great sportsmanship as well as how to be safe and avoid unnecessary injuries."
A big thank you to Laura Salazar, Communications Director at Intermountain Healthcare, for the delicious lunch provided for the captains and leaders.
All grades are welcome to participate in the 2017-2018 National PTA Reflections! Deadline for entries is October 9th. All information is in the office or contact Kristi Daley at 801-830-7519. Good luck Lions!

You’re a Grand Ole’ Flag rang out across the sky as third grade students at Barnett, led by Mr. Cope sang the patriotic song. The song was the beginning of a flag ceremony that took place in honor of Constitution day. Students of Barnett Elementary gathered on the grass around the flagpole singing the National Anthem, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and listened to speeches given by 6th grade students. Barnett has retired our old flag and brought in a new. The old flag will be given to the American Legion so they may properly retire the grand ole’ Flag. Goosebumps could be felt at the flag ceremony during the time of reverence as the old flag was taken down, but it wasn’t because of the chilly morning. It has been a special day honoring our forefathers and the flag with the leaders of tomorrow.

Hi! My name is Mrs. Perkins. I have been a teacher for 17 years and now want to be a principal of a school. I have always loved working in a school full of lively active children, die-hard compassionate teachers, and staff. Park View is full of incredible people! A few things about me include: I have three grown children and one grand daughter, my favorite color is yellow, I love animals, I love to read, I love to take my jeep to the mountains and camp, I love to sing and play my piano, and spending time with my husband and family is my #1. I feel absolutely privileged being here at Park View Elementary. Everyone here at this school has been so welcoming and friendly. I thank you. Thanks for making me feel like I matter!

Night of Heroes: October 9, 2017 5:30 to 7:30. We have LOTS of fun Heroes (local and super) coming to visit us, food trucks, silent auction, face paint, fun activities and lots, lots more. This is the last week to turn in new items for the theme baskets. If you do not know your class theme, please ask the teachers.
Pick up and Drop Off: We have had some problems with parents parking in the pick up/drop off area. We remind you again to please not park in this area before or after school, including during preschool and kindergarten start and end times. If you need to get out of your car for any reason we kindly ask you to park in a marked parking stall and come in to the school. If there is an empty space in front of you while you are waiting to pick up or drop off your students we also ask that you continue to pull forward, filling the void in space. Please note that the pick up/drop off lane is a single deep lane. The other portion of this lane is for a pull-through only. Do not stop or park in the pull through lane. In keeping to this procedure will help keep the flow of traffic moving along so we do not back up into the street more than necessary. Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe in this particular area before and after school.
School Tshirts: This is the last chance to order Taylor Hero Tshirts. If you are having a hard time doing this online, please come into the school and we will help. http://www.colorpointpromo.com/taylor/
School Registration Donations: We want to give a big THANK YOU to all the parents who generously paid your students registration donation this year. As you may or may not know, these donations are used to fund field trips and activities that go above and beyond the regular classroom experiences. If you did not have a chance to pay a donation please know that you can do this at any time. We have asked for a $20 per student donation if you choose to participate. Again, thank you to those families who have supported the efforts of Taylor Elementary in this matter.
