Nebo District changes day for district-wide collaboration time.


Nebo’s district-wide collaboration time will change to Monday instead of Wednesday beginning in the 2016 - 2017 school year. All students will continue to be dismissed 45 minutes early from school on Mondays. Nebo District implemented a highly successful, district-wide collaboration time in 2008. Collaboration time is specifically for teachers to focus on improved student learning and quality instruction.

Kindergarten Book Buddy Day

Photos and Article by Cheryl Leifson

There was a tremendous amount of synergy going on as students and buddies researched an animal and prepared a report.  Afterwards, our kindergarten students were proactive in serving their buddies some donuts and water.  It was a win-win situation as everyone put first things first in working on the research papers and then sharpened the saw by giggling and enjoying the donuts.  We would love to thank our amazing PTO for providing the donuts!  They truly seek first to understand our needs!

Congratulations to seven very lucky Panthers who just won tickets to the Champions Challenge Rodeo which will take place in June at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds.  These students met their reading challenge and were entered into a schoolwide drawing: Jordan Jensen, Aspen Olsen, Saberial McKell, McKay Thomas, Kyler Hoover, Austin Golding, Taylor Johnson.  Kyler Hoover and Jordan Jensen were the lucky winners of a new pair of Justin Boots.  Way to go Panthers!

A Real "BULL"-Y Blocker

On Leap Day, we had an assembly.  Rodeo Clown J.J. Harrison was there along with rodeo queens and rodeo officials from Spanish Fork City.  They talked a lot about the difference between teasing and bullying as well as the difference between tattling and reporting.  J.J. always likes to end with a contest.  He had Mr. James come up and try to rope him.  Mr. James actually roped him!  Then to close, we repeated after J.J. and told our teachers that they were awesome and underpaid.

Mission:  To Live; To Learn; To Lead

Vision:  We inspire our school community in developing academic and leadership skills by teaching "The 7 Habits," making connections throughout the curriculum, and involving everyone in leadership roles.  We serve each other, our families, and our community.  We achieve and inspire greatness.
