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!\
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

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.
See attached letters for more information!

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."
On October 23, from 3 - 4 PM, teachers will be available to help students in their classrooms for the end of the term during this week's mini conferences. Please utilize this time to finish the term strong! #mnjhs #neboschooldistrict #utahpublicschools #mtnebojr #pantherpride #pantherroar
