Tanner Christiansen, Benjamin Bigler, Heather Laing, Jodie Tiapson, Sebastian Tinoco and Isabella Bowers.   Being selected to compete means that these students are among the top 10% of keyboarders in Nebo.  We are so proud of them!  Congratulations!

Math Wizards Celebrate Earning their Wands


Our third graders have been working really hard to learn their fast facts. This year when they passed off their fast facts they became “math wizards” and earned a wand.  Every student has now passed off their fast facts. To celebrate we had a wand party. Students had butterbeer, played bingo, played minute to win it Harry Potter games, played heads-up, and made a wand holder. It was a great celebration of their work.

Reading for Rodeo

Our school enjoyed learning all about the rodeo and the different people who participate.  We are doing great on our way to our reading goal, with 1,107,509 minutes read so far.  We look forward to finding out who wins boots, hat, jeans and rodeo tickets :)  Reading calendars come home tomorrow and go through the month of April.  Keep up the great reading! 

We also gave away 2 bikes yesterday.  Our winners were Chloe Davis and Tristan Lott.  Congratulations!
