Mustang Monday Message

Mustang Family,


We are grateful for the opportunity we have during the month of December to help our students in need. We will have a few more Giving Tree ornaments available on our tree very soon! Donation requests will be attached to ornaments hanging on the tree. We request that only adults (not students) take ornaments. Gifts are due back at the school by Tuesday, December 14th. Thank you for your generosity.


During the month of December, you will find many of our staff members wearing Ugly Sweaters; you are all welcome to join us:). Although, we can't do many of our traditional Christmas assemblies and performances, we are going to do everything we can virtually and make this Christmas season as magical as possible.


Next week, we are looking forward to celebrating all of the great reading our students are doing during our Polar Express Party. Students have been earning reading tickets to purchase hot chocolate toppings and other yummy treats from the Polar Express Conductor's cart. We are excited!


Warmest Wishes,


Principal Balli



Familia Mustang,


Estamos agradecidos por la oportunidad que tenemos durante el mes de diciembre de ayudar a nuestros estudiantes necesitados. ¡Tendremos algunos adornos más del árbol de donaciones disponibles en nuestro árbol muy pronto! Las solicitudes de donación se adjuntarán a los adornos que cuelgan del árbol. Solicitamos que solo los adultos (no los estudiantes) lleven adornos. Los regalos deben entregarse en la escuela antes del martes 14 de diciembre. Gracias por tu generosidad.


Durante el mes de diciembre, encontrará a muchos de los miembros de nuestro personal vistiendo suéteres feos; todos son bienvenidos a unirse a nosotros :). Aunque no podemos hacer muchas de nuestras tradicionales asambleas y actuaciones navideñas, vamos a hacer todo lo que podamos de forma virtual y hacer que esta temporada navideña sea lo más mágica posible.


La semana que viene, estamos ansiosos por celebrar toda la gran lectura que nuestros estudiantes están haciendo durante nuestra Fiesta Polar Express. Los estudiantes han estado ganando boletos de lectura para comprar coberturas de chocolate caliente y otras delicias del carrito del conductor del Polar Express. ¡Estamos emocionados!


Los más cálidos deseos,


Director Balli

The Giving Tree

It’s time for The Giving Tree! If you have chosen an ornament please remember that gifts need to be returned to the front office by Tuesday, December 14th, unwrapped with the ornament attached. We have a few more Giving Tree ornaments that will be on the tree very soon. Thank you for your generosity!

Reflections

Hi Parents and Students,


We were really impressed with the student entries in our school's Reflections contest this year. Great job everyone!


Please take a minute to watch this slideshow put together by Karen Bowler, that showcases all of the student work:

Today, we distributed participation prizes and awards to students who scored high enough to advance to the next level of competition. (If your student wasn't at school today, their teacher has their award!). See the awards details below. Because of COVID, we won't have a formal awards night, so be sure to congratulate your children on a job well done!

New Mental Health Resource for Parents

We are pleased to offer a free and confidential website for families, ParentGuidance.org. This site was developed by licensed therapists that provides trusted and specialized courses, professional support, and a safe community for parents, to learn how to support your child.

Cold Weather Protocols

With cold weather arriving, we would encourage you to write your student's names in their gloves and jackets so that if they lose them on the playground we can return them. If you are new to our school and would like to see our winter protocols, click here.

We need you!

During monthly Nebo School Board meetings, the board recognizes incredible employees throughout the district that are doing an outstanding job. If you think an employee deserve's to be recognized, let's nominate him/her!

Safety

A few reminders:


  • We are working hard to teach students to use the crosswalks. We are concerned about the number of students running across the pick-up lanes and parking lots. If you can help us teach your children about this that would be great!
