Ms. Stewart's Class Writes Reviews and Receives Response

Submitted by khristen.massic on Tue, 11/19/2019 - 13:41

Students in Ms. Stewart's classes were tasked to write a review for their favorite products. Emilee Jackson wrote the following review of Crumbl Cookies:

"Crumbl Cookies is a delicious snack to buy when you are hungry, its warm soft cookies are the best with some cold milk. It is always packed with people, and very popular. You can get different kinds of cookies to choose from each week, and place them in a box to take home to eat. You walk in and smell fresh cookies, the young adults that works keeps it nice and clean. This warm and cozy place can deliver it to you, or you can pick it up anywhere in Utah.

"The warm and soft cookies are placed into a small pink box, but once you get home you open the box and the smell of deliciousness to where it spreads into the house. Crumbl Cookies are so soft and gentle that it can break so easy and smooth in the palm of your hand. They will make different kinds of cookies every week, but will keep the two original cookies out. The two popular original cookies are the sugar cookies, and chocolate chip cookies. They will place out four other cookies every week, with some salty, sweet, and all the different kinds of flavors that you would never think of. 

"The taste, and texture of the cookie is very breathtaking. When you first open the box of cookies all you can smell is mouthwatering. Just by eating one cookie it will fill up your appetite and is very flavorful. It is always warm and fresh out of the oven, and very well prepared. The softness and melted chocolate of the cookie tastes excellent with an ice cold cup of milk. Crumbl will give out different kinds of cookies every week, some will be sweet but some might be sweet and salty. 

"The Crumbl store will be easy to find, it is placed in many different places in Utah. Some days it will be busy, but other days it won't. When you walk into the store it is very warm, and very spotless. They will make sure everything is nice and neat, to where I would not mind going into every day. The young kind workers will make sure everything that you bought is right. The service is very delightful. The prices are very reasoning. I can buy one box of cookies for only 10 dollars. You can have a box of cookies delivered to your front door for only 12.99. They open at 10AM, and close at 12AM to where if you needed a midnight snack or lunch break.

"Crumbl is a nice family cookie store, it is very delightful to walk into. It is very neat and tidy, and the service is outstanding. I definitely would go every day if I could, it fills you up very fast with a small glass of ice cold milk. Crumbl is very easy to find everywhere in Utah, and can be delivered. It is sometimes busy, but it matters at what time you would like to go. There are different kinds of cookies every week, and can give you a box of them for only 10 dollars. You will never get a bad result from Cumbl, and will get the best out of this place. 

"By Emilee"

Ms. Stewart was pleased when Crumbl sent Emilee the following response:

"Hi Emilee!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We get hundreds of reviews a day, but we loved reading yours because of all the details you provided about the store, the cookies, and why you like Crumbl! We use reviews to understand what is going right in our stores, and what needs to change, which make your review very helpful.

"We love how well you know our business model and changing menu! We think always having new flavors to try is one of the best things about Crumbl, and we are glad to hear that you think so too! Let us know if you have any ideas for new flavors, we'd love to hear them!

"We hope that we get to see you in the store again soon! Good luck with your schoolwork, and give Ms. Stewart a high-five for us. Sending you warm cookie wishes!

Take Envision Utah Survey and Earn Money for MNJHS!

Submitted by khristen.massic on Tue, 11/05/2019 - 11:09


We want to let you know about a unique opportunity you have to weigh in on the future of our
community, while also earning funds for our school.

This fall, Envision Utah is helping Utah Valley residents and stakeholders create a vision for the
future as we add nearly 1 million people to our population over the next 50 years. This effort –
called Valley Visioning – has culminated into the Valley Visioning survey, linked below.

The survey gives Utah Valley residents the chance to weigh in on growth-related issues
important to our future. It will serve as the foundation for a vision with specific strategies which
will help ensure Utah Valley remains a great place to call home, now and in the future.

The survey is also a good chance for us to get support for our school. Please take the survey and
type in our school’s name at the end. For every survey completed by a parent, teacher, or student
(13 years or older), Ancestry and Adobe (in partnership with Envision Utah) have agreed to
donate $1.50 to our school.

I cannot stress how invaluable of an opportunity this is for us all to share our voices to define our
future. Please take the survey and share it with your friends, family, and everyone you know!\

Thank you!

Submitted by khristen.massic on Mon, 10/28/2019 - 14:46

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.
