SafeUT Awareness Days February 22 & 23 In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app. As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks. Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone. Throughout the day, KSL will be highlighting all that the app can do, the history behind it, the success stories and much more. In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:· Encourage your friends to download the app· Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts KSL Contest: Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to win a $50 visa card These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL! The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and end Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m. Watch KSL News at 5 p.m. on Friday to see which school will be receiving 100 pizzas!
Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools. A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday, February 7 and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21, 2018, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)
The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.
Thank you for your helpful feedback.

Last week, Park staff nominated and then voted on a Park Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year. The Teacher of the Year for Park is Ms. Carrie Dunn. Here are what a few of her colleagues said about her:
“She is amazing. She puts so much time and effort to understand her students and to meet their needs. She is great to work with. She has a positive word for everyone. She is always willing to help. She is always trying to learn more and improve her skills.”
“She is always going above and beyond the expectation of a teacher. She is involved in multiple ways to help our school and faculty. She does whatever anyone needs and always smiles about it.”
“She has an amazingly organized classroom and creative ideas. My daughter saw her snowman Leader in Me done by her students in the hall and was impressed. She comes early and even comes in on weekends, etc. She has a radiant smile on her face and shows true patience for her students.”
Park wouldn’t be as amazing as it is with Ms. Dunn! We are so lucky that we get to call her a Park Panther. This award is very much deserved.
Congratulations Ms. Dunn!
Our Family Connection Leaders are working hard to help us use the 7 Habits in our everyday lives. For the month of January, they focused on First Things First and setting priorities. Ask your student if they are putting First Things First. They were challenged to set their priorities and think about their schedule to get the most important things done and still have time for fun. The Family Connection Leaders would love to hear about how you are using the 7 Habits at home. Please encourage your student to share these successes with the Family Connection Leaders or email Ms. Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep putting First Things First!
Mrs. Perschon's class was the Lunchroom Winner of the Week last week. Congratulations and keep up the good work!
