SEP Conferences - Thursday, March 1st

Hi Parents!

Our SEP conferences will be held this Thursday, March 1st.  This will be student led conferences so there will be no sign-ups for this conference. 

We recommend that those whose last name that starts with A-L to come any time from 3:30-5:30 and M-Z to come any time between 6-8.  We understand that this time does not work for everyone so if you need to come to the other session that is fine.  We are just trying to prevent too much congestion.  Teachers will be eating dinner from 5:30-6pm.  

We hope to see you there!

Letter from our PTA Regarding Reflections


Sierra Bonita parents, A few months back, we sent out a survey asking for your feedback regarding Reflections. On the survey we proposed 2 different ideas. The first one was to continue to participate in Reflections. The second was to opt-out of Reflections, but instead hold a Sierra Bonita arts contest with similar categories and prizes as Reflections. The school-only program would have less limitations and rules, but the participants would not have the opportunity to move on to district or beyond.  Most of the people that took the survey supported the idea of switching to a school-only contest. However, we are aware that some of you expressed concern and would like for our school to continue participating in Reflections. In order to make a decision, we'll have a meeting on Friday, March 2nd at 2:30 pm in the teachers' lounge to discuss both options. If you feel strongly about Reflections, your attendance is important. Amy van Dyk, our current Reflections chair, will explain what is needed for our school to continue participating in Reflections and will also share her ideas for a school-only program.  You can email us at if you have any questions. Thank you, Sierra Bonita PTA

Service Project for Mrs. Sorensen's class

For Valentine's Day, students wanted to share their love and chose to do a service project for their class party.  Students were each able to make a first-aid kit, and collected many other items to be donated to Humanitize Expeditions. 

These items will be taken to Haiti, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic to help those in need.  Great job students! You are definitely making the world a better place. 

Thank you to all those who donated items for this project.

 In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the Safe UT app.  As you all know, the Safe UT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks.

In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:·Encourage your friends to download the app·Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts  

KSL Contest:  Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to wina $50 visa card These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL! The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m.
