Math March Madness Winners

Submitted by jan.grotegut on Wed, 04/29/2020 - 10:09

Congratulations to our Math March Madness Winners for 2020:  Vaughn Sanford, Caleb Unguren, Luis Ramos and Brynlie Golding.  These students were the fastest in their grade level on a multiplication facts timed test.  In the past, we have put  3 and 4th grade students in one competing bracket and 5th and 6th graders in another bracket and fashion the competition similiar to the March Madness Basketball brackets, determining the Sweet 16, Elite 8 and the Final Four.  At the end of March, we usually have a face off at a live assembly to determine the fastest student in the the two brackets.  Unfortunamely, due to COVID 19 and the soft closure of schools, we weren't able to fully finish our competition.  But these students were the fastest going into the Final 4.  Congratulations!  

Utah Valley University: K-12 Live Online Reading Classes Available Now

Submitted by jan.grotegut on Mon, 04/27/2020 - 10:40

The Utah Valley University K-12 Reading Program has opened early, reduced rates, and converted all classes to a live online format, to help parents and schools maintain student education during these unusual times.


Our live, teacher-led online classes are available now and throughout the summer, for Pre-K through 12th grade students. 


The curriculum is high caliber and has been taught in a live, online format for 5 years already with over 50,000 school-age students.  The classes are led by highly-trained teachers with many years’ experience teaching effectively in online classrooms.  Skills taught include:


  • Early Elementary: letter recognition, phonemic awareness, sight words, phonics
  • Mid-to-Late Elementary: fluency, phonics, long-word decoding, comprehension, textbook reading, writing
  • Middle and High School: doubling reading speed, comprehension, writing, notetaking, test preparation, textbook strategies


Due to the unfolding health crisis our ability to get the word out to parents has been greatly diminished.  Many parents are seeking solutions to keep their children productively engaged and ready to hit the ground running when in-person school resumes.  Would you help us make them aware of these programs by forwarding this email with its attached flyer, which describes the classes?  Should a parent have trouble opening the attachment they could also visit our website at


We appreciate your support as we all strive to keep students learning, reading, and connecting with other kids during this challenging time.

Govenor’s Extension of School Soft Closure

Dear Parent/Guardian:


Like you, we are just learning that Governor Gary R. Herbert, State Superintendent Syd Dickson, and the Utah State Board of Education “announced today that Utah’s K-12 public schools will extend their dismissal [soft closure] through Friday, May 1st.”  Their press release further stated that they will “continue to evaluate the situation to make a determination about the remaining school year” and that:


Gov. Herbert expressed his appreciation to the educators throughout our state who have quickly adapted their instruction to remote learning platforms. 


“These are unprecedented times in Utah’s and our nation’s history,” the governor said, “I have been overwhelmed with Utahns’ outpouring of support for one another, and nowhere has this been more evident than in the way our educators are supporting Utah students and families.”


Distance learning will continue during the extended dismissal for all K-12 public schools, where feasible…


“We recognize that being away from school creates additional work and stress for everyone in our communities; however, it is a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson. “During the uncertainties of the coming weeks, it is more important than ever to remain socially connected with our students and families while doing our best to ensure learning continues. The flexibility and initiative of our educators is a shining example of how we rise together in challenging circumstances.”


Meal services at K-12 public schools will also continue on an as-needed basis.


Nebo School District teachers and staff remain committed to providing the learning structure and support that students and parents will require during these challenging times.  Our talented and dedicated professionals are so thankful to you students and parents for your tremendous efforts regarding at-home schooling.  Please remain in communication with your child’s teachers and contact the school with questions and concerns. 


We are so grateful to live in amazing communities that rally around each other in difficult circumstances and are proud to be your partners in helping your children have academic and social/emotional success.
