Submitted by courtney.corbin on Wed, 02/21/2018 - 21:02

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!
