CTE Month Teacher Spotlight - Tori Clarke

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Fri, 02/19/2021 - 13:57

In Nebo School District, we have amazing CTE teachers! We are so grateful for all that they do for our students, parents, and for our district. February is CTE Month and to celebrate our teachers we would like to spotlight them and share a few fun facts we have learned about each of them.

Tori Clarke has been teaching for 25 years years. She currently teaches at Legacy School and teaches Business.

She says the best thing about her job is “The students and other faculty and staff that I get to work with.”

Join us for Parent-Teacher Conference Open House

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Wed, 02/17/2021 - 14:56

Thursday, February 18, 2021 - 3:00 – 6:00p.m. Legacy provides unique opportunities during Parent-Teacher Conference time. Beyond communicating progress, grades and missing assignments, students are able to use the time as an intervention period to get help making up unfinished work. In addition to this assistance, for each hour students attend the conferences, they are able to reverse an unexcused absence, up to three. The big question is why would anyone pass up these chances? We love to see the families of our students and brag about their successes!

What We Are Learning: Basic Writing Skills

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Fri, 01/29/2021 - 14:58

“If you can talk, you can write!” says Kristi Murdock, our English teacher. This photo is our Basic Writing Skills class, where everyone receives a spiral bound notebook and each day receive a story-starter prompt. Students begin with some time to organize their thoughts and then must write for 5 minutes nonstop. Through various assignments, the class reviews the steps of the writing process: Brainstorming, Rough Draft, Editing and Publishing. Mrs. Murdock says it is fun to see the students’ progress!

Service – Tying Quilts

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Fri, 01/29/2021 - 11:33

We have a tradition of tying quilts each fall to donate to a local shelter. Tying quilts is a great group project; it goes quickly with many hands working together. It takes very little skill or experience and they make lovely warm covers. Several were set up in our main hall and remained for a few days so students could add a few stitches as they had free time until all the quilts were finished. Doing a service for someone else helps us gain perspective about our own challenges. It was fun to work together and rewarding to give back to the community.
