Areas of Nebo School District have been affected by the recent storm. Due to the extremely cold temperatures, hazardous driving conditions, and the expectation of continued snow, as of 6:15 a.m. the decision has been made to cancel school today, Monday, February 3, 2020. We know this will be an inconvenience for many, but safety of students and employees is of utmost importance.

Dear Nebo Parents/Guardians & Employees:
If the storm proves to be as strong as predicted, Nebo School District schools will be closed all day tomorrow, Monday, February 3, 2020. However, a final decision regarding the closure of schools will not be made until 6:30 AM tomorrow morning.
Nebo will not be considering a two-hour delayed start tomorrow due to our Monday early out schedule.
People from the Springville Art Museum came to Orchard Hills this week to teach us about art curating! We learned about how art museums choose art to be displayed based on a theme. We then practiced currating our own art collections! Thank you for coming, Springville Art Museum!
These students used inference, observation, communication, and critical thinking skills to problem solve! They found clues around the library, considered the prime suspect profiles, and with their supporting evidence, determined who they thought was guilty and what the motive was. The prime suspects were Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Jack (of Jack and the Beanstsalk), and the Frog Prince. Thanks for the fun activity, Mrs. Alexander! Ask your 3-6th grader who their investigative team thought was guilty!
Last week, Orchard Hills students had the opportunity to learn about the Village Drill Project. The VIllage Drill is an organization based out of Utah, that builds drill wells in remote villages in Africa, South America, and Asia. It was so interesting to learn about people who don't have access to fresh, running water, and what others are doing to help. We learned about how lucky we are, and that we can give up little things to help others! If you are interested in learning more, visit https://villagedrill.com/ .
Caleb is the Athlete of the Month because of his endurance while playing any game. Even when he is hurt, he will keep playing! Mrs. Darger has to pull Caleb away from games to sit down when he needs a break, other wise he would just play and play! He is such a good example because he is nice to everyone, and is a good helper with anything in gym. Everyone that knows Caleb likes him - he is a likable guy! Congratulations, Caleb! Way to ROCK it!
