Savannah Stinson received the Mayor Youth Recognition Award at Payson City's October City Council Meeting
Savannah is a wonderful young woman attending our school. She is always happy and she is always willing to help others. She is the kind of person that just sees what needs to be done and she goes about doing it. It is an honor knowing her.
“I would like to nominate Savannah Stinson for the Payson City Mayor Award. I have had the pleasure of getting to know this young woman over the summer and now in class. She is amazing, excelling in all that she does. She is happy, polite, hard-working and she sees what needs to be done and she just does it. Her smile brightens the whole room. She is always willing to "lend a hand" and quickly steps in to help other students and teachers in the library.”
“Savannah is a smart and kind student who is friendly with all of her classmates. She is very hardworking and does every task set in front of her with dedication and excellence.”
“Savannah has a quiet, pleasant demeanor that attracts friends. While she pushes herself to do well academically, she is also kind to others and helps other students understand the material as well. If there is ever a need in class, Savannah will notice it, and volunteer to fill that need. I have been fortunate to have had Savannah as a 7th grader and as a 9th grader, and I have never been less than impressed with her dedication, kindness, or academic ability.”
Whenever she comes to the office she always had a huge smile on her face. She's always positive and happy and has a positive attitude that seems to affect everyone around her! #mnjhs #neboschooldistrict #utahpublicschools #mtnebojr #pantherpride #pantherroar

"START" Begins Tomorrow!

Submitted by khristen.massic on Sun, 10/27/2019 - 19:48

The staff of Mt. Nebo Junior High School are proud to announce a renewed commitment to ensuring that class time is used effectively and efficiently. In that spirit, we have adopted a new set of procedures that will begin the second term of school. We are calling these procedures: Operation START on Time!—the acronym stands for “Safe Transitions And Reduced Tardies.” This change is a result in part due to feedback from a recent student focus group. In that group, students expressed the need for a change in our current class transition policy that would enable them to get to class in a timely manner without needing to “push through crowds in the hallways.” We also feel that this change will make our school safer, due to increased hallway supervision, and allow us to maximize academic time in the classroom by minimizing distractions tardies cause teachers and fellow students.

Article by Ellen-Anita Olson

Cody McFarland received the Mayor Youth Recognition Award at Payson City's September City Council Meeting.

We are honored to have Cody at our school. He is a friend to everyone and is always willing to help others. Here is what some teachers said about Cody:

“Cody is a kind, humble boy who thinks of others before himself. He is not afraid to try new things, and he is always willing to go out of his way to help others. He served on Spring Lake Hawk Squad and adults have entrusted him with many responsibilities that others would not want  or be qualified for. Last year he earned the Student of the Year award.  He is an honors student in both English and Math. He is new to our school and he is already very friendly and welcoming. Our librarian has already seen his value and trustworthiness and awarded him with a year-long library pass.”

"I've known Cody for about 2 weeks which may not seem like a lot, but he's made an impact on me.  Our class "get to know you" game was a literal game of Clue.  Students needed to gather information about their classmates and input it into a spreadsheet.  Cody organized his data not only with the written information but also included colors on his sheet.  He organized it in a completely unique way - - it gave me the opportunity to teach the class, using his spreadsheet as an example, that there can be multiple right ways to solve a problem."

Congratulations Cody!
