Lions, Tigers, and FOSSILS!!! Miss Nuttall's class invited Mr. Sorensen, from the District Office, to their classroom to ask questions about fossils after reading a book about dinosaurs. Mr. Sorensen brought fossils and answered all our questions. Have you even seen a Megalodon tooth? What about a Utah Raptor? All the students in Miss Nuttall's class can now day they've seen both. Thanks Mr. Sorensen.

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 #canyoncubs

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.

Canyon Elementary fifth and sixth graders had the opportunity to participate in a school spelling bee. Each class held their own individual contest and sent 8 students to the school spelling bee. Those 48 students did a great job as they competed Friday, February 2, 2018. The final two contestants were Emily Wilkins and Rebecca Morales. They correctly spelled words round after round. The spelling bee lasted over 2 hours! In the end, Rebecca Morales won the contest. Rebecca now moves on to compete at a regional spelling bee. We are so proud of all of the participants.
