Grizzly Update, February 7, 2017

Mr. Blake Mortensen

PJHS Parents and Students,

It seems strange how the weather can change so fast! It’s a distant memory of the snow, sliding on the road and the late start day. Students’ grades aren’t as easy to change. Please work with your students and help them stay caught up this term. We are almost to midterm! We will also have parent - conferences on Wednesday, February 15th! Please plan on attending with your student!

Valentines Day Activity 

As Valentines day is next week, we wanted to let parents and students know to please not bring flowers, balloons, or treats to the office. It becomes an overwhelming task to manage all these items. We prefer that these items are given to students before or after school. We will hold whatever items are brought until the end of the day to give to the students.

We will also be holding an activity which is similar to the Halloween activity. Students will get to choose an activity to participate in the last hour of the day. Some examples that they may choose are weightlifting, badminton, bingo, cooking activity, movie, and a dance. Please allow your students to stay and participate in the activities and not be checked out.

Stake Holder Survey

All Nebo school district parents should or will receive a link about completing a stakeholders survey. Please complete this as it reflects how our teachers are doing and what is happening in our building.


Way to Go, Jessica Hall, Kaylee Mecham, and Spencer Reid for winning this week’s perfect attendance! It pays to be on time!
