Our district earned the Energy Star Certification! Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Energy Use Index readings and calculations of each school were taken into account. This data, along with many other data points, were used to compare our schools to other schools around the country. Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100.
Kindergarten Pre-registration for next year’s kindergarten students is on Tuesday, March 20th from 8:00 to 4:00. Please bring a birth certificate, immunization record and proof of residency. Students will also take a short kindergarten assessment screener to help us determine class placement. Pre-registration will take place in the computer lab. Please let your friends and neighbors that don’t currently have children at our school know.
Third grade students were shocked when Clint, from Clint’s Reptiles pulled out his snake Buttercup! The reptile show introduced the third grades ecosystems unit. They learned all about different reptiles and the ecosystems they come from. They were taught that snakes and most reptiles are more afraid of you then you are of them!
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 their 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
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!

Park View sixth graders received a visit from Lance Conrad, the author of The Price of Creation series and The Weight of Swords. He entertained students with his personal experiences and discussed writing in a way that captivated students. After the visit, students were not only excited to read his books but to start writing their own stories as well. Thank you, Mr. Conrad, for taking the time to inspire our students!
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.
