Safe UT 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 Safe UT app.  As you all know, the Safe UT 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 wina $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!

Parent(s) of Sierra Bonita Sixth Grade Students, 

On Friday, March 23rd, 2018 Diamond Fork Jr. High School would like to invite you to attend a registration assembly in the junior high café-torium.  We will be meeting with the sixth grade students from 9:30-11:00 AM for an introduction to our school.  Parents and students will have the opportunity to view a brief presentation and to receive 7th grade registration information.  If you cannot attend, your student will be instructed to bring home the registration form for your approval and signature.  The 7th grade registration form needs to be returned to their 6th grade teacher by March 30th.  If the registration form is not returned to their teacher by March 30th, please bring it to the junior high school Counseling Center as soon as possible.  Late registration forms may cause students not to receive their chosen electives.  

We look forward to helping your student have a successful junior high experience. 

Thank you,

Diamond Fork Junior High Counselors

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 11:01am
Attributions: Lana Hiskey

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 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.

February Newsletter

(more pictures available)

Hello Parents, 

Welcome to February!  I can’t believe that we are this far into the school year.  With spring on its way in 6 weeks, hopefully in 6 weeks, we anticipate many more great things happening here at Sierra Bonita.  I am impressed with the great students we have in our school and the great support they get from each of you!  Thanks for all you do!


SEP Conferences

Our SEP conferences will be held on March 1st.  These will be student led conferences so there will be no sign-ups for this conference.  We recommend that those whose last name that starts with A-L to come any time from 3:30-5:30 and M-Z to come any time between 6-8.  We understand that this time does not work for everyone so if you need to come to the other session that is fine.  We are just trying to prevent too much congestion.  Teachers will be eating dinner from 5:30-6.  

Lost and Found Items:  We have several items in our lost and found back by the lunchroom.  Please have your students take a moment to look for their lost items.  You are welcome to come in and look for items as well that are your childs’.  If items continue to increase and become too many, we will donate these items to Tabitha’s Way.

PTA News:

Box Tops week will be February 5th-9th.  Please bring in any Box Tops you may have to your classroom teacher.  Prizes will be awarded to the class with the most Box tops brought in. 

Next PTA Meeting:  February 14th at 9:15 am. 

School Community Council

Our next SCC meeting will be on February 21st at 11:40. 

We are in the process of reviewing our goals for next year and making needed changes to help our students succeed. 

Pick-Up Zone & Parking

We appreciate the efforts of all parents and staff members in providing for the safety of students in our drop-off and pick up zones. Please help us to ensure that all students are accompanied by an adult when crossing through the pick-up zone.  Also, thank you for reserving our handicapped parking spaces for those who have need for these parking stalls. We remind you to please park in a parking stall if you need to leave your vehicles to come inside the school.  This allows the flow of the drop-off and pick-up areas to be maintained and keeps vehicles moving forward and not needing to back up!  We have great appreciation for everyone’s efforts to increase safety in our parking lots and drop off and pick-up zones before and after school.  Winter weather creates a greater need for caution and patience as we come to and from school! 

Note: By law, bus zones cannot be used as drop off and pick up zones even if there are no buses present!


School Checkout Procedures

Please follow the following procedures when you need to check a student out from school before the end-of-school bell rings.  First, share with an office secretary that an early checkout is necessary, second, fill out information and sign name on the checkout sheet located in the office area, and third, wait in the office area until your student arrives in the office. Thank you.


Students Walking, Riding Bicycles/Scooters & Crosswalks

We have many students who are walking and riding bicycles/scooters to school each day. We have provided training for students to use sidewalks and to follow the instructions of adult supervisors and our crossing guards. We have instructed students to use the crosswalk in front of the school when crossing 1800 East. Faculty members will serve as crossing guards at this crosswalk. We ask that all parents please instruct their children on these and other safety measures to better ensure that students safely make their way to and from school each day.


Spirit Day

We have school spirit at Sierra Bonita, and have designated each Friday as our School Spirit Day. We have nice school shirts and encourage children to wear their school shirts (this year’s and past years’ shirts) or school colors (blue and maroon) on Fridays.  We have a lot to be proud of at Sierra Bonita and want to do all we can to build school pride.


Extracurricular Activities:

Look for information about our Spring robotics classes coming home soon.
