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.

Students in Mrs. Elliott’s sixth-grade class delivered red envelopes to every student in the school for the Chinese New Year. Red envelopes always contain money in China, and are given mostly to kids. Chinese people regard red as the symbol of energy, happiness, and good luck. Giving red envelopes is a way to send good wishes and luck. Thanks for sharing this tradition with us.

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.
