On October 8th, Art City teachers were seen wearing their "Nebo Hero" t-shirts,  We even spotted Mrs. Muirbrook serving lunch in her shirt.  Nebo School District Superintendent Rick Nielson knows what a hero is. He arranged to have every employee in the Nebo School District receive a "Nebo Hero" t-shirt and has requested that we wear them certain days of the month. On the front the shirt says, "Nebo Hero Nebo School District" and on the back it says, "Be your Best When it Matters Most". The acronym he uses for a HERO is as follows: H - Heroes Help people with no strings attached
E - Heroes create an Exceptional experience for the people they serve
R - Heroes take Responsibility for their attitude, actions and results
O - Heroes see life through the lens of Optimism

What Makes You Scream?

What makes you want to SCREAM?  This month students in Ms. Larsen's and Mrs. Luther's class at Art City Elementary wrote about what makes them want to scream.  The students studied "The Scream" by Edvard Munch and used similar colors, lines and movement to create their own watercolor art.  With a digital camera the students pictures were taken recreating that famous scream face.  Their pictures were printed then cut out and glued onto their watercolor painting.  Students then wrote about what makes them scream and published their writing in the school computer lab. The project allowed students to use their photography, watercoloring, writing, computer and typewriting skills.  These works of art are displayed outside Ms. Larsen's and Mrs. Luther's third grade classroom and are making all of us at Art City wonder what we would "scream" about.

Hi my name is Hannah Beus.  I graduated from Jacobs High School in Illinois and Brigham Young University.  This is my first year teaching. I am so excited to be teaching third-grade!!  I was born in Pennsylvania. I grew up in Colorado, Japan, and Illinois (Chicago area).  I live in Provo. My family now lives in Houston. In other words, I miss Chicago deep dish.  My parents are basically Chip and Joanna Gaines minus the farm and plus a few kids. I am the oldest of six children, with one married sister and four brothers. I'm single. My identical twin brothers are coming to Brigham Young University in the fall as freshman and I'm excited to show them around the area.  Fun fact: If I had decided to teach fifth-grade in Houston I could have had my youngest brother in my class this year. He said that was weird. I said it would have been fun, for me.  My favorite things to do outside of school include: reading anything I can get my hands on, writing the novel I've been working on for 10 years, watching and quoting movies, doing family history, listening to Imagine Dragons, and doing anything involving the word "competition"--whether or not I actually stand a chance.
