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 his or her 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!

Students enjoyed the “Utah History Made Delicious!” assembly.  A shovel, three hoes and a spade become rhythm instruments for students and teachers while the audience sings “Diggin’ in the Dirt.” An old dress becomes three shirts, then several quilt squares, then a rag rug, then ashes yielding lye for lye soap and fertilizer for the garden as students sing “Use It Up!”   A.R.T.S., Inc. is a leading source of arts and education for the State of Utah, reaching more than 200,000 individuals annually. It is their goal to help a broad network of fine arts’ organizations to play an active role in children’s development. A.R.T.S., Inc. provides Arts and Education programming that not only entertains and educates, but is an excellent support for the Utah State Core-Curriculum.
