Nebo’s district-wide collaboration day will change to Monday instead of Wednesday beginning in the 2016 - 2017 school year. All students will continue to be dismissed 45 minutes early from school on Mondays. Nebo District implemented a highly successful, district-wide collaboration time in 2008. Collaboration time is specifically for teachers to focus on improved student learning and quality instruction.
Today Westside was visited by Cole from NetSmartz for two assemblys (one for younger kids and one for older kids) to learn about using the internet safely. The kids watched some video clips and participated in discussion to learn about several different topics. A few of the things they talked about included being careful with social media, not giving out personal information, and cyber-bullying, as well as counteracting cyber-bullying through kindness.
This week the faculty at Westside voted on an outstanding employee for this school year, and that person was our wonderful sweeper, Dustin! He is kind to students and teachers, is cheerful, and makes people feel better for having been around him. Dustin is a hard worker who conscientiously fulfills his job with a smile. We are so grateful to have Dustin at Westside!
