Sierra Bonita 4th graders had the opportunity to participate in "ABC 4 Weatherbug" with meteorologist, Dan Pope, sponsored by Arbys. This broadcast was done on LIVE TV. I will post the Broadcast once ABC 4 Utah posts it on their website.
What a fun opportunity for these students to see behind the scenes and maybe one day, they can be a meteorologist just like Dan Pope. Students also sang the Sierra Bonita Song, some students were interviewed by the meteorologist, Dan Pope.
A HUGE Thank you to Arbys and ABC 4 Utah Weatherbug for allowing our students with this opportunity. A Thank you, Terena Anderson, for putting this all togther!
Dan Pope, was so incredible, he took time out of his busy schedule to take pictures with those who wanted them.

Parents, Students and Friends –
SFJHS has a belief that all students, faculty and staff belong to a community. In our community we practice the Lobo Way. That is, we strengthen the pack, learn to learn, forgive and accept, and find our voice. Throughout the school year and in all that we do we will learn about and practice each of these beliefs. The first belief is we will strengthen the pack. This means we will positively contribute to our classes, our school, and our community. We will see the good in others and build confidence, and we will respect and encourage individual strengths.
This afternoon I watched a group of friends at lunch out on the lawn. A girl came out of our building with a bit of anxiety about some boys who were squeaking their shoes in the hall during lunch. The noise hurt her sensitive ears and she was angry that the boys would be so loud. She had a hard time expressing her feelings about it, but the group listened to her as they were genuinely interested in helping. They could have ignored this girl, but they didn’t…they listened until an adult came by to help their new friend. This group of friends positively contributed to their school by just listening. The girl was able to regain her composure and left to her classroom happy. Our motto, by Rudyard Kipling, says. “For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.” There was a great deal of strength in the small act of listening today.
SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL NOMINATIONS
Every public school has a school community council consisting of the principal, elected school employees and parents. Parent input is important in the decisions made by our council. School Community Council (SCC) needs THREE PARENT NOMINATIONS to be on the council this school year. If you are interested in serving on the SJHS SCC, email Mr. Blake Mortensen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mrs. Jordan has been meeting with grade levels to discuss school policies and rules. Pictured is Mr. Ewell's and Mr. Lai's fifth-grade.
September 28, 1992, on a beautiful, sunny, autumn day, Mrs. Janis Nelson's third grade class buried a time capsule. This time capsule will be opened exactly 25 years from when it was buried on September 28, 2017 at 10 am. Brockbank would like to invite anyone from that class or anyone else that would like to come to a short ceremony that morning.

My name is Nancy Cornaby and I'm excited to be teaching at Mt. Loafer. I went to Utah State University and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in education. This is my 13th year teaching and I love it. I have taught kindergarten, first and second grades. I grew up here in Salem and still live here with my family. James and I have four children – 8 year old Nikale, 6 year old Jake, 5 year old Tate, and our Lucy is 2 months. They make life exciting! I had horses growing up so I enjoy riding and I’ve competed in a number of rodeos and horse shows. I still love riding in the mountains gathering cattle with my family. I also enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family.

Big congratulations to our coaches and student athletes on winning the UIAAA Director's Cup award. This award is given to the top athletic departments in each classification based on overall athletic department success on the state level along with academic performance.
MMHS has been honored with this award for 4 out of the last 5 years. The Directors Cup is awarded to the school achieving the highest cumulative point total in each classification based on state tournament results in all sports (boys and girls) and the successful implementation of the “Raise The Bar” sportsmanship initiative.
The top 16 teams in each sport and classification received points based on how their teams finished in the UHSAA State Championship events. (This counts for 40% of the Directors Cup Total.) Each school may also submit their respective team GPA’s to the UIAAA.

Nebo School District offers free hearing screenings for all students in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 6th grade. Your child will receive this screening at Sierra Bonita on Wednesday September 6th. It takes about 3-5 minutes.
If for any reason your child does not pass this screening, he/she will be rescreened two weeks later. Often a child fails to pass the first screening due to fluid in ears, congestion, excessive ear wax, etc. This is why we rescreen them. Many children who fail the first screening go on to pass the second screening.
If, however, your child does not pass the second screening we will let you know. If this is the case, it is recommended that your child receive a full evaluation, which is offered free of charge through the district.
If for any reason you would prefer your child’s hearing NOT be screened, please return the bottom portion of this form to your child’s teacher before September 6th. If you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you!
