Congrats to our Drill team for being the 4A State Champions! They won their Region competition and competed in State Semi-Finals on Thursday, January 31st. They advanced to the State Finals which were held Friday February 1st at 9am. The completed their 3 State Routines (Military, Dance, and Kick) and had an exemplary performance in each routine. The Las Chalitas have had a successful season all year, but knew to win the State Title they would have to peak at just the right time. They did just that and won 1st place in the Military category, 1st place in the Dance category, and 2nd place in the Kick category. They placed first overall and were named the 4A State Champs. This is the first time that any drill team in Nebo School District has EVER taken State in Drill. This is a major accomplishment and we would like to recognize and congratulate this team on their hard work and dedication! Way to make history, Las Chalitas!!

It is with great pleasure we inform you that Mr. Joe Kelly has been recognized in Sterling Brinkerhoff's application for the Lynn Jensen Memorial Scholarship. Dr. Jensen was passionate about students, and the important role school counselors have in serving all students. The main piece of the scholarship application is to write an essay about a counselor who has made a difference in the student’s life. An essay was written nominating Mr. Kelly for the incredible work he is doing every day to influence students, and because of his essay, Sterling has been selected as a winner of the scholarship. This is a wonderful honor for school counselors, and we hope that you join us in congratulating Mr. Kelly!
