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.

Sixth-grade students showed up at school at 6 o'clock in the morning to see the super blue blood moon eclipse. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy to see the eclipse. We enjoyed the donuts, the hot chocolate and the good company.

Students were given 100 index cards and 100 cm of tape. They had to use these items to build a tower in 30 minutes. The tower that could hold the most weight won. We also had a 100 piece puzzle challenge. The group that could finish the puzzle the quickest won a prize. The students then wrote autobiographies about themselves, from the ages of 1 to 100. They had to make up some of the information for later on in their life. It's funny to see the things the students wrote. They were also given a picture of themselves that have been aged to make them look older.

“Amy’s students are a priority. She takes the time to collect academic and behavior data on each student and formulates a plan in the first few weeks of school. She consistently meets the needs of every student in her class and will research and find materials to meet those needs. Parents appreciate that she communicates daily if needed and responds to their questions and concerns quickly. Amy also serves on the School Community Council and offers valuable teacher input to help the parents understand the needs of our school and celebrate the great things we are doing. She is willing to help and support the teachers, staff and administration and isn't afraid to jump in and try new things. She is truly a Nebo Teacher Hero!!”

Congratulations Mrs. Russell
