This year educators were invited from the Deaf-Blind School to enact a simulation in our classrooms. This was done to help the students understand the challenges facing students in our classroom. The students learned a great deal and have developed a great sense of empathy for all students with disabilities.

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.
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.
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.
Fourth-grade students had the opportunity to visit the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. They enjoyed digging for fossils, discovering the dinosaur exhibits, and exploring the many hands-on exhibits.
First-grade teachers have challenged their students to "Read for the Gold!" They are having a competition between classes to see which class reads the most minutes.
A student was chosen from each class to participate in a snowball fight with the principal. These students all met their January reading goal!
