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

In the library this week we had a fun lesson on experimenting with different kinds of books. By sitting at a table with a group of 3-4 students, each student had a few minutes to sample each book at the table as if at a restaurant sampling different courses of a meal. There was a video of a fireplace going, soft music playing and Mrs. Olsen teaching about different kinds of books and what makes them appealing and enjoyable. The students loved the fun way the librarian brought the books to life for them for a day.

At this time of year, we see an increase in student absences. As a school, we support your decision concerning sending your child to school or not. If your child is sick and contagious, we would encourage you to keep him/her home to accelerate the healing process and get better.
That being said, attendance at school is critical to academic progress. If your child is not sick or contagious, please make an effort to help him/her get to school on time. Our teachers are prepared each day to provide quality learning activities for students. Without your child’s attendance, he/she will miss out on those lessons and activities causing them to fall behind academically. They are missed when they are not here.
Student success is a team effort between home and school. Thank you for your help concerning this matter.
Have a great week, Dana Beckert

This week we are excited about having the district dance specialist, Melanie Fillmore, here to work with our teachers and students. This will be our third experience this year working with her and we are excited to have her back. Previously, she has worked with 3rd-6th graders and this experience will include 1st and 2nd grades. She will be training and teaching our teachers ways to integrate arts instruction, specifically dance, into other content areas as well as helping teachers know how to teach the specific Utah core fine arts curriculum.
Experiencing the fine arts is part of a well-rounded and complete education. We are proud to be a part of the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program which provides arts-integrated instruction to elementary students. We have wonderful teachers who strive each day to provide fine arts experiences for our students.
Have a great week,, Dana Beckert
