Tue, 01/16/2018 - 2:21pm

The lunchroom just became a little more lively with the blue and yellow decorations for the lunchroom winner of the week. This past week, Mrs. Bird's 1st grade class was our class of the week! They displayed wonderful behavior in the lunchroom by not sharing food, keeping their voices at a talking level, not running around, and just being kind to those around them! Way to go Mrs. Bird's class!!!

Meet Ms. Boyer

Thu, 12/14/2017 - 12:51pm


I am so excited to be joining the 6th grade team at Park Elementary. Although I am coming later in the school year, I have confidence we will have a great rest of the year. I am so excited to meet your child and get to know them.

A little about me..

I was born September 21st, 1995 in American Fork, Utah. I have moved several times and my family currently lives in London, England. I attended Brigham Young University and loved every minute of it. I am passionate about education and am excited to be a sixth grade teacher. Ever since I was little I have prized learning. My desire to learn has influenced every aspect of my life, including my desire to be a teacher. My grandmother was a teacher for 25 years and I hope to continue her legacy by serving the children I teach.

My teaching Philosophy

I believe in creating a community of learners where each child feels valued and able to grow as an individual. In order to do this, my classroom will need to be a safe environment where students feel comfortable with myself and their peers. I plan to create authentic learning experiences and reach each students’ diverse needs. I am excited to take part in Park’s unique leadership program and help students take charge of their own learning. Having met the sixth grade team and other faculty and staff, I am positive we will have a great experience.

I am so excited to jump in and work hard with each of my students and I look forward to meeting you!

Inclement Weather Procedure

Thu, 12/07/2017 - 9:04am

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 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.

Ms. B, our school counselor, has been teaching us about being proactive vs. reactive. During Lighthouse Leaders we learned what it means to be proactive, and that sometimes we have the choice in a situation to be proactive or reactive. Her lesson was followed up the following week during our Leadership Sendoff with what being reactive can look like. What a great obeject lesson with Diet Coke and Mentos. Thank you, Ms. B!
