Congratulations to the following students who represented Mt. Nebo Junior High School in the Great Kids Awards given by the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. Each student was given $100.00 from the Utah Community Credit Union and numerous gifts from various community sponsors. 

Hayden Heaton is the son of Shelley and Rodney Heaton. Here is what his teachers wrote in his nomination:

Scott McFarland, English Teacher: Hayden is a joy to have in the classroom. He balances studying graphic novels with complex literature like "The Good Earth." Hayden is not afraid to try new things. He is creative and dynamic. He is a leader among the students. Hayden will take charge and show his fellow students what needs to be done.

Sierra Hotchkiss, Science Teacher: Hayden is a respectful and kind young man. He is always willing to work with any student either to help them or working in a partnership.  He always says “hello” when he enters the classroom and has a smile on his face. He is an example to his peers and lives what he believes.  He is a hard worker and excellent student.

Kaylee Torres is the daughter of Jamie Jones. Here is what her teacher wrote in her nomination:

Amber Capell, Math Teacher:  Kaylee is a beautiful 7th grader with a smile that brightens a room and eyes that invite conversation. She is kind to those around her: lending pencils, helping with problems, sharing food, including less popular students into her group, and always being positive. Kaylee is always picking up garbage, straightening desks, or organizing things to make our classroom a happier place. Even without being prompted, Kaylee volunteers to work with and explain math to one of the students who needs some extra attention. She is never seeking the lime-light; she just loves others and seems to see the best in them. I appreciate her example and hope she continues in her passion and integrity!

The Mt. Nebo Junior High HOPE Squad is headed up by one of our counselors, Mr. Hiatt. Students that are selected for the HOPE Squad were nominated by their peers as someone they can talk to, and who is friendly and kind to others. The purpose of the HOPE Squad is to train squad members in leadership and suicide awareness in order to assist and help peers who are suffering from depression or who may be suicidal. We are committed to empowering students to seek help and save a life.  HOPE Squads are an important link to school-based suicide prevention programs; they are the eyes and ears of our student body.

This week is the National Librarian week and we want to thank Mrs. Durrant for all she does for our school! She has so much knowledge about the books available in our library and knows what our students like to read. She is also getting an e-book system set up for our students and has organized reading baskets for every classroom. She does all this and so many more things to help our school. Thank you Mrs. Durrant!

Reality Town

Submitted by melissa.nielson on Tue, 04/15/2014 - 08:57

On Wednesday, March 26th our 7th grade students had the opportunity to participate in Reality Town.  Before entering the "Reality Town" in our gym, students received a Student Handbook and Personalized Pay stub which contained information about their Reality Town family; their spouse, or lack thereof, and the ages and gender of their children. As part of the preparation for the Reality Town Simulation, students learned about loans and other expenses during their CTE class.

In the Reality Town students made financial decisions regarding their Reality Town family and their monthly expenditures as they visited 22 different business that had been set up around the gym including groceries, housing, medical office, child care, etc. which were staffed by parent volunteers, student council members, and school faculty. 

With each choice they make at the different businesses, students establish their Reality Town lifestyle and determine their monthly budget. Financial Counseling and Supplemental Income Businesses provide struggling students with additional help and financial resources to aid them in their adventure! 
Thanks to Mrs. Huff, Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Christensen for all their hard work in putting Reality Town together!!
