Parents, administrators, and the general public often wonder just what it is that school counselors do on a daily basis. Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class or waiting for a crisis to occur. Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, career, and social/emotional development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.

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.
All extracurricular practices or activities planned for before or after school will also be cancelled.
In Ms. Keetch Psychology class today they were learning about the brain. How it works and how it is wired to send signals.
They were specifically learning about how the brain has an element of plasticity. It can learn something and then later modify what it has learned.
To demonstrate this concept with the hands-on learning approach that Ms. Keetch is so good at, she brought in a backward bike, or as we lovingly called it, "BB".
The thing about 'BB" is that when you get on to steer it you very quickly find out that the steering is opposite of what you have learned.
The ALC will be hosting an Open House at the end of this month, January 28th and 29th from 5 pm to 7 pm.
This is a great time for you to come and find out what we offer here at the Advanced Learning Center.
We have many courses that are offered here and we have amazing teachers who teach here as well.
Mark your calendars and plan on attending this night.
In Mr. Albright's classrooms, they are always learning the soft skills needed to have success, not only in the classroom but in life.
One of these skills that they learned this past week was one of being positive to lift others.
The students learned through a hands-on activity that it is important to figure out ways to lift others. They also learned that when we continually try to do that and especially when we do that as a team effort, the results are astounding.
In Mr. Albright's intro to Education class, the students are asked to come up with lesson plans to take back to the elementary classrooms they are helping in. Not only do they have to plan, but they also have to present the projects to their fellow classmates, and then have the classmates do the activities they have planned.
It is always so much fun to see the creativity the students have, and the love of learning they instill in those they help teach.
It is also fun to see the positive feedback the students give to each other.
