Picture retake day will be October 3rd.  The photographers will be here from 7:30-10:30 am.  However, if there are not many students or faculty needing pictures they may shut down early.  Please be at school as early as possible to avoid the possibility of not being able to have them taken.  If students are doing retakes, and you have purchased a picture packet, please have the student bring the previous pictures with them to school to exchange for the new ones.

If a student has NOT had their picture taken this year they need to have it done so their photo can be in the yearbook and they can receive a student ID card.  You have the option of still purchasing picture packets if you wish to do so.  You may prepay online at www.bellphoto.com using the online code: mtnebojrfall17 (code expires 10/5/17).  If you have any additional questions, you may contact Bell Photographers at 801-479-4624.

Fall Sports Captains

Several team captains represented  Mt Nebo's fall sports and student government at Nebo School District's Captain's Academy. Great job captains: Grace Marsh-cross country,  Richelle Nielsen-student government, Leah DeBart and Livy Chandler- girl's tennis, Max Iverson-golf, Hadley Mason-cross country.

The purpose of the Captains’ Academy is to promote sportsmanship between the schools. This goal is realized through the captains and leaders working together at the academy to promote better relations between the students and athletes, to develop leadership through the academy activities, and to develop relationships with coaches and administrators as they present at each academy.

Michelle Best, with Intermountain Healthcare, talked with the leaders about healthy lifestyles and especially how important sleep is in staying healthy. Athletes are more prone to health issues an anxiety because of lack of sleep.

Brodie Berg, a 1990 Oregon State High School Golf Champion and currently a firefighter, led a discussion about great leaders. He emphasized that great leaders have character. Talent is a gift but character is a choice. Brodie also mentioned that great leaders are competent, accomplish more than others, inspire others, are generous, build relationships, take responsibility, and have passion to name a few attitributes.

ABC 4 sports director, Wes Ruff, introduced Sportsmanship. Wesley grew up in Springville and enjoys golf. His message included the importance of character, attitude, and having pride in your team.

Steve Dudley, athletic director at Spanish Fork High, led a discussion on sportsmanship and reporting. The various sports captains took the word “sportsmanship” and came up with descriptors for each letter and reported back to the group.

Troy Bohling, student services coordinator and organizer of these academies, said, "Captains’ Academy has provided a powerful forum for athletes and school leaders to discuss and implement essential leadership traits and the value of great sportsmanship as well as how to be safe and avoid unnecessary injuries."

A big thank you to Laura Salazar, Communications Director at Intermountain Healthcare, for the delicious lunch provided for the captains and leaders.
