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.
Yesterday, Mr. Mecham and Mrs. Van De Graaff sat on a panel for a Q and A with 9th-grade students seeking to understand how Olympic Time runs at our school. If this seems a bit unusual, you are right. It doesn't happen very often that students are able to sit down with Admin and teacher leaders and ask them about school programs. The students had this opportunity to help them with a project that they are doing for English.
In order to teach students to work in teams and solve problems, the 9th-grade English teachers have challenged students to develop proposals for how they would change Olympic Time here at Salem Jr. in order to make it more effective. We are excited to hear what they come up with. They have learned about the purpose that Olympic Time serves and are now preparing to develop proposals which they will present in front of their teachers and peers. Who knows, maybe one of their ideas will be put into practice next year.
School Community Council Meeting has been cancelled for Thursday, February 8, 2018.
Our annual talent show is coming up on March 5th this year. The kids at this school are so talented. It's always one of the best assemblies every year.
The student council is holding tryouts next week February 6 and 7 from 2:45 to 3:45. Any students who are interested in showing off their amazing talents can sign up for an audition slot in the front office.
Can't wait to see all the great talent we have at our school.
