Parents, Students and Friends –

Parent Teacher Conferences TOMORROW

P/T Conferences will be held tomorrow - Wednesday, December, 9th from 2:00-7:00pm. This is a great chance to talk with teachers about how your student is doing and make plans to get back on track if needed. Remember, Christmas Break is fast approaching and after Christmas there are only a few days until the end of the term. Because of this, 2nd term has traditionally been when students get their lowest grades - we want to change that trend!  As all of us - students, teachers and parents - work together we will change 2nd term into one of our best terms.

 Penny Wars

Tomorrow, Thursday and Friday are the last days to donate to Penny Wars. All students are invited to participate in this fun competition sponsored by NJHS! Contribute silver change or cash bills to your second period class and it counts for your class - any pennies contributed by others to your class will count against you.  So… feel free to bring your pennies to slow other classes down. All funds raised through this event will be donated to the Nebo Credit Union - Warm the Souls campaign. The winning class will receive a fun prize so let’s get excited and have a great Penny War competition! Also - Be aware that there will be an opportunity to donate to Penny Wars during Parent/Teacher conferences tomorrow night.

 Safety Reminder

With the recent tragedy involving the student that attended Mt. Nebo Jr. High fresh in our minds, we would like to remind everyone to please be alert and careful as you come to, and go home from school during these winter months when it is often dark outside. Please follow all applicable safety rules - Students must cross the street only at the cross walk, we remind parents to please use the north or south parking lots for pick-up and drop-off. These parking lots are designed to facilitate a circular traffic pattern which makes using them as a drop off/pick up zone much safer. Your help with this important safety issue is appreciated.

 Lobos in Action

Congratulations to our very own Ruby Campbell who submitted a piece of her artwork and won the Nebo School District’s Christmas card contest.  Ruby’s drawing will now be featured on this year’s official Nebo School District Christmas Card, sent to all employees, board members, and others on the district’s Christmas list. The honor of being chosen might be exciting enough, but there was also a $75.00 cash prize attached!  Way to go Ruby!
