Ms. Camper's class enjoyed a fun review lesson today. They had 45 minutes to unlock their box as a group. The students sorted nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns to figure out the answer to the number lock. To find the answer to the directional lock the students had to put the place value houses in order from greatest to the least. The students were able to solve the word lock by completing two and three-digit addition and subtraction problems. Then they used a cipher wheel to determine the correct letter for each problem. One of the trickiest clues they had to find was hidden around the room. The students had to solve a problem and use that clue to find the hidden key. The class enjoyed solving tricky problems and working well together. All groups were able to unlock their box with 47 seconds left. It was an awesome day!
It looks like Mrs. Taylor's class had a great time learning about habit 6! "I taught a lesson on Habit 6- Synergize. We did the following activity called Save Sam. It was a huge hit with the students. Under the cup was Sam's life preserver (gummy Lifesaver). On top of the cup was Sam (gummy worm). They each had a paper clip. They couldn't touch anything with their hands, they could only use the paper clip. The object was to grab Sam, turn over the boat (cup), and put the life preserver onto Sam. There couldn't be any stabbing with the paper clips. They then put Sam with his life preserver into the boat." -Mrs. Taylor
Way to go, Mrs. Taylor's class!

Mt. Nebo Jr. High is proud to have received the Energy Star® Certification, in recognition of superior energy performance. Buildings that earn the EPA's Energy Star® use 35% less energy and generate 35% fewer greenhouse emissions than similar buildings across the nation.
Over the last 3 years Nebo School District has issued an Energy Incentive Challenge to the facilities in their boundaries. Energy Star® applications were sent in for 44 facilites and ALL 44 qualified. This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared against other schools in the nation. Our district average was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100.
With 44 Energy Star® Certifications earned, Nebo School District has the most certified facilities out of any organization in the state of Utah. Now that's something to celebrate!
