The award-winning DramaDons proudly present the winter play: MACBETH

This new take on the old classic will be a 75 minute look into the greed and power that corrupts. The DramaDons have set the show in modern American politics, and have changed the witches from creepy old hags into the frenzy and insanity of the media and press. 

You will be shook when you realize how awesome this show is, and there is only a few chances to see it. The show opens on Thursday, February 22nd at 7pm. It runs every night until the 26th, with an additional matinee showing on Saturday at 2. 

Tickets are only 6 bucks for students, so make sure you get them now, as the show is in the little theatre, and seating is limited. You don't want to miss this!

Nebo Stakeholder Survey

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools. 

A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday, February 7 and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21, 2018, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

FFA had some students had some awesome success on Friday. The proficiency award program recognizes students for the skills they have developed through their Supervised Agriculture Experience (where they take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in a real world setting). In January 11 of our students were named Area Winners (our version of region). 

Britton Redd: Agricultural Processing, Ethan Von Hoene: Agricultural Sales - Entrepreneurship, Tell Orton: Agricultural Services, Stran Sorensen: Beef Production - Placement, Stran Sorensen: Diversified Agriculture, Kacie Jones: Diversified Horticulture, Kalley Stubbs: Nursery Operations, Porter Olsen: Poultry Production, Brooke Voorhees: Sheep Production, Kacie Jones: Vegetable Production, and Lorin Wyss: Veterinary Science.   These students then moved on to the state competition which was held February 9. We were fortunate enough to have 8/9 students (8/11 projects) that were named state winners and will now move on to Nationals. The others all placed second. This is 20% of the total winners from the state!  This is a pretty awesome accomplishment for our students.   Britton Redd: Agricultural Processing, Tell Orton: Agricultural Services, Stran Sorensen: Beef Production - Placement, Kalley Stubbs: Nursery Operations, Porter Olsen: Poultry Production, Brooke Voorhees: Sheep Production, Kacie Jones: Vegetable Production, and Lorin Wyss: Veterinary Science.   These students will be rewarded at the State FFA Convention coming up March 8-10 in Cedar City.  Way to go FFA!! You are ROCK SOLID!!
