Dear Parent: Nebo School District sincerely appreciates your support of Nebo School District and the opportunity to work together with you to provide an exceptional education for our students. We would appreciate your input on the Bond Survey before October 31. Please go to www.nebo.edu to begin the survey. Nebo School District is in the initial planning process for a Bond Election to be held next year on November 6, 2018. Bonding is the primary method school districts use to construct new schools and meet other facility priorities. Bond money cannot be used for salaries and benefits. Based on previous community feedback of wanting to move to the middle school model, Nebo School District plans to ask patrons to approve a $298 million dollar bond in November 2018. This tax-rate-neutral (no tax rate increase) bond will be used for: 1. Building three new middle schools for students in sixth and seventh grade. These middle schools will be located within the boundaries of Salem Hills High, Springville High, and Maple Mountain High. As the new middle schools are completed, Mt. Nebo Junior High and Diamond Fork Junior High will become middle schools; 2. Rebuilding Payson High, Spanish Fork High, and Springville High; and 3. Making improvements to existing buildings and sites. It is estimated that approximately $10 million dollars of bond funds will be focused on upgrades and improvements. The Nebo School Board's decision on which projects to include will rely on public input and recommendations from parent committees. In accordance with state law, the Nebo School Board will finalize all plans prior to the 2018 Bond Election so the voting public will know the specific plans before voting. In the coming months, please continue to look for additional bond information at www.nebo.edu and in meetings held throughout Nebo School District. Again, Nebo School District sincerely appreciates your input and support of Nebo School District. Please go to www.nebo.edu to begin the survey.

The volleyball team is putting donations together for our Thursday night breast cancer awareness game against Provo. We invite everyone to come out and support the volleyball team as they support those who have overcome and are overcoming their fight against breast cancer.
We will be having a dig meter, and are asking people to pledge anywhere from 25 cents to 1$ per dig that the varsity team gets during their game. We will have a sign up at the door and we will collect money during the game for all this that would like to participate. The foundation we are donating the money to is called National Breast Cancer Foundation. All those who donate will receive a pink breast cancer awareness wrist band.
Thank you so much for your support! See you all on Thursday at 6:30!
Dear Students and Parents,
This Monday, October 16 will be our first Monday Make-up Day. We will have one per term. We will shorten the school day and excuse students at 1:10 pm. Teachers will be in their rooms from 1:10-2:30pm helping students. Buses will still run as usual on Mondays at 1:45pm. Parents can visit with teachers on Monday also. We are anticipating that it will be pretty hectic in the classrooms for the first 60 minutes, but it will hopefully calm down the last 20 minutes or so if you want to drop by then you are welcome or you may email the teachers.
Monday is also Mega Detention. If your student has any NCs this term or from previous terms they will want to sign-up for detention. To sign-up students pay $5 in the finance office to be added to the detention list. Students will serve 3 hours in the detention lab (from 2pm-5pm) and receive 5 hours of credit.
Last, I want you to know how much I love working at MMHS and spending time with students—your children. Please follow me on Instagram @principal_nielsen. I post “what’s happening” at school. And please like us on FACEBOOK! https://www.facebook.com/maplemountainhighschool/

Spanish Fork City will be repaving (doing road work) on 2550 East (the road east of the school from 4th North to the Seminary Building) the week of October 9th through 13th (next week weather permitting). Please plan an alternate route to school if possible or be careful using that road. Plan to park in the north or south parking lots if possible. They are going to try to leave at least one lane of traffic open and not close the entire road. Thanks for your help in this matter and sorry for the inconvenience.
