PJHS Regular Schedule Feb. 23rd

Submitted by chris.killpack on Thu, 02/23/2023 - 08:50

All Nebo schools will be open on the regular schedule for Thursday, February 23, 2023. We truly appreciate the city, county, state, and district personnel for their diligent work in our recent storm across our district. Please remember that school closures are rare. In most cases, school will remain in session even with Utah's climate. Because weather conditions may vary greatly in different neighborhoods and on different streets, we encourage parents to make attendance decisions for their own students.

Peer Leadership Team Building Student Pride

Submitted by chris.killpack on Fri, 02/17/2023 - 11:22

This month our 9th grade Peer Leadership Team helped incentivize student pride in our school. They passed out “Mecham Money” to teachers and staff who gave them to students who were demonstrating pride in their school. Teachers looked for students picking up trash, helping others, behaving well, donating food for the food drive and participating in spirit week. The students then redeemed  the “Mecham Money” for Hispanic candy, drinks and snacks from the reward booth during lunch.

Peer Leadership Class Service Project

Submitted by chris.killpack on Fri, 02/03/2023 - 10:13

Each month in PJHS Peer leadership classes a group of students take the lead in a service project or activity. This month the 8th grade peer leadership class decided to make hygiene kits. Click this article to see some photos of students serving! They researched businesses, organizations, and people in the community that could donate items. They held Telethons during class where they each called different places assigned to them to ask for donations as well as reaching out on social media. It helped them with their communication skills while doing something good for those in need.
