February 6-10, 2017 is "Show Your Love To Mt Nebo Jr. High" week. Our PTA is collecting donations to give mini grants to our teachers to use in their classrooms. The money collected will also be used to feed our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week and Parent Teacher Conferences. Our goal is to raise $1000! The top 3 classes who return their notes/envelopes signed by a parent will receive donuts on Valentine's Day in their first period class. Please help the PTA support Mt. Nebo Jr. High!
This week is Hope Week at MNJHS! Hope Week is the annual anti-suicide, anti-bullying awareness program. Make sure to buy a donut for a friend or teacher who you appreciate! $0.75 for 1 or $1.00 for 2!

February 2017 is CTE Month!
Career and Technical Education (CTE) creates pathways to lifelong career success for every secondary student by providing him or her with the technical skills and academic knowledge needed to prepare for future employment and/or a successful transition to postsecondary education.
CTE provides students with technical training to prepare for a successful career. The structured training each student receives gives him or her the tools needed to be successful in a career after high school and/or further his or her postsecondary education, whether technical school, two- or four-year college. Each student is encouraged to explore various areas of study and to develop the essential skills to enter today’s competitive job market with confidence.
Career and Technical Education is an essential component of the total educational system in Utah and is critical to the country’s ability to compete in a global economy. Career and Technical Education is provided in a variety of settings and levels, including middle school/junior high career exploration, secondary programs, postsecondary certificates and degrees, and customized training for employees in the workplace.
