Kindergarten Pre-registration is coming up soon!   If you have an upcoming kindergartner or know of any neighbors who have an upcoming kindergartner, please share the following information:
Pre-registration will be on March 20, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..   When parents come on this day to pre-register their 2018-2019 kindergartner, we ask that you bring your student's birth certificate, immunization record as well as proof of residency.   We will be asking you to complete  Enrollment information online on this day in our computer labs.   We use this information to make emergency calls and gather health information.  It also gives us phone numbers of people to call when a parent cannot be reached.  We also ask that you bring your 2018-2019 kindergartner with you to this pre-registration.  We will be conducting a mini assessment on each student while parents are completing the enrollment.    PLEASE SPREAD the  WORD to your Family and Friends.

Parents of 6th Graders-7th Grade Registration day is this week!  The students will walk to Mt Nebo Jr High on on Wednesday, Feb. 28th. Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately for the cold weather.  We need to be at Mt Nebo at 9:25 so we will be leaving AS SOON AS SCHOOL STARTS!  PLEASE make sure your student is here on time so they can join their class on this walk.  Upon arrival at MNJH, students will have the opportunity to hear from the following groups:  MNJH Administration, band, student council, orchestra, drama, sports, art, choir, school nurse and counselors.   This is a great opportunity for our sixth graders to be exposed to the classes offered next year as well as receive information on how to register for classes.  Students will walk back to our school at 10:45 a.m.  A packet of registration paperwork for your student will be given to the teachers.  When they return to the classroom, students will be given the paperwork to take home to be completed.  Remind your student that they need to return the completed paper work to their teachers by Friday, March 2nd .  A counselor will come to the school on Tuesday, March 6th to gather 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  KSL Contest: 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 22and 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! #nebohero #studentsuccess #empowerstudents #engagestudents #focusonstudents #loveUTpublicschools #utpol #uted #NeboDistrict #NeboSchools #safeUT

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Fri, 02/16/2018 - 20:36

Taylor Elementary is full of fantastic spellers!  Recently, the annual third-grade spelling bee was held in the gym of Taylor Elementary.  This year's competition was tough because the students in Mrs. Melanie Ellsworth, Ms. Olsen and Mrs. Provstgaard's classes have been practicing for quite some time memorizing words in order to become the new spelling bee champion! Parents, along with the second and third-grade classes, were invited to come watch the top spellers from each class participate. It was an extremely fun day for all participants. 

Grand Prize Winners were first-place, Veronica Brown; second-place, Caleb Thurgood and third-place, Miah Martin. 

Congratulations go the participants!  What an impressive bunch of students in the third-grade!
