SafeUT Awareness Days

Thu, 02/22/2018 - 7:18am

(more pictures available)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 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! #nebohero #studentsuccess #empowerstudents #engagestudents #focusonstudents #loveUTpublicschools #utpol #uted #NeboDistrict #NeboSchools #safeUT #wildcatsroar

On Tuesday several sixth grade classes at Westside were fortunate to have a guest lecturer, Dr. Allphin, a professor at Brigham Young University, come and present about ecology. One of the sixth grade science strands is ecosystems, so hearing from Dr. Allphin was the perfect segue into the new unit. The students learned about ecological relationships, the food chain, and the role the environment plays in the food chain.

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.

To kick off learning about the Middle Ages, several sixth grade classes were visited recently by a Viking knight, Sir Bailey. The sixth graders learned all about what it meant to be a knight during the Viking times, what they wore, weapons that they used, and what their lives were like. It was so interesting to have a visitor from the past to bring history alive!

Just before the Christmas break, sixth grade orchestra students displayed their talents in an assembly. The sixth graders, some of who had never played their instrument before this year, played Christmas music as the school listened. Several students also showed their instrument and played a solo to demonstrate the sound.
