As directed by the State of Utah, all public schools in Utah will dismiss beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, for two weeks in response to COVID-19. This is a proactive measure.

School “dismissal” means that Nebo employees will continue to be in the schools providing learning for students through online instruction and/or educational packets to continue student learning. Further communication about devices and materials will come from your school.

Frog Dissections

For the past two days, Mrs. Mendosa’s seventh grade science class has been dissecting frogs.

 The first day each class looked at the mouth, and students had lots of comments:

 I asked Cael Cabreros from 2nd period, what he liked about the dissections.  “It was fun, and also it was educational,” he said.

 When I asked Dallin Rust, from 6th period, what he did not like about the activity, he commented, “Taking out the tongue because it was rough and slimy.'' 

 What surprised you about it? Madalyn Welling from 6th period said, “The smell of it.”

March Madness PTA Fundraiser

Last week the PTA had a fundraiser for the school.

The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) was in charge of this and students were to get a parent signature on a donation envelope. There were options to pay ten, twenty, forty, or even sixty dollars, but students did not need money to turn in the envelope.

These donations are in place of doing what students did in elementary such as the jog-a-thon or a dance. The class that has the most envelopes turned in WITH or WITHOUT money got 5 minutes of extra lunchtime.

Band Concert

On Thursday, March 5th, the Spanish Fork Junior High School Band performed at the high school.  The first group to perform was the Beginning Band, and they performed three songs. One of those three songs was “Walking the Planks'' by Robert W. Smith.  Their performance was amazing! 

The next group to perform was the Jazz Band. They also performed three songs. My favorite of the three songs was “Barbados” by Paul Lee. During the song, they had two soloists: Caden Paxman and Victorya Bowen.
