The Springville City Council Chambers was filled with some pretty amazing students and their parents in February as Mayor Richard Child and the City Council honored them for their community service and involvement in the Springville Junior High Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA).  A few of the note-worthy projects they have been involved in are; fundraising efforts raising over $25,000 to help assist Mihkenna Merrill with her medical expenses, picking pumpkins and gourds for Harvest Farms, volunteering with Happy Valley Farmer’s Market and helping with Red Ribbon Week. The SJHS PTSA is led by wonderful parent volunteers. PTSA President Tess Jones describes the students she works with as “hard-working, sincere, dedicated and having great attitudes.”

Pictured with their families are the nine Mayor Recognition Award recipients: Alexi Love, Jesus Hernandez, Brynn Jones, Molly Hunter, Levi Palmer, Kevin Pau Rojas, Gavin Jones, Madoc Jones and Deagan Rosenlof,

Look around you! Nominate a student serving others and working hard at www.springville.org/mayoraward. We would love to see them at our next city council awards.

SafeUT Awareness Days February 22 & 23

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 22 and 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!

Stakeholder Survey

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools.  A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday, February 7 and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21, 2018, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

Thank you for your helpful feedback.
