Break Out Review

Ms. Camper's class enjoyed a fun review lesson today. They had 45 minutes to unlock their box as a group. The students sorted nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns to figure out the answer to the number lock. To find the answer to the directional lock the students had to put the place value houses in order from greatest to the least. The students were able to solve the word lock by completing two and three-digit addition and subtraction problems. Then they used a cipher wheel to determine the correct letter for each problem. One of the trickiest clues they had to find was hidden around the room. The students had to solve a problem and use that clue to find the hidden key. The class enjoyed solving tricky problems and working well together. All groups were able to unlock their box with 47 seconds left. It was an awesome day!

Do you like Sardines or Guacamole?  How about oysters and olives?  The students in Mrs. Smith's 3rd grade class had a lesson on trying new things.  First they noted what food items they think they would like, then they got to choose which foods they wanted to try.  The food choices included raisens, green olives, guacamole,  sardines, oysters, cottage cheese, hot cheetos, spam, and crackers.  After they tasted each food, they noted if they liked it or disliked it then compared their before and after results. Finally they graphed the differences of what they thought they would like versus what they really ended up liking or disliking.  What foods do you think you would like?

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 #santaquinelementary 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 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.
