National School Psychology Week 2020

Nebo celebrates all our school psychologists, and all they do for Nebo students.

During the week of November 9-13, 2020, schools throughout the United States celebrated National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive.

This year’s theme is “The Power of Possibility.” The word “possibility” implies hope, growth, resilience and renewal. Possibility suggests that even something as small as a seed can grow into something magnificent. The word “power” implies that things can and will happen. When we focus on what is possible, we have hope that students will grow, thrive and bloom.

Thank you Nebo psychologists for all you do for our students.

Students Benefiting from the Collaboration of the Pods

Submitted by khristen.massic on Wed, 11/11/2020 - 06:03

We are loving having our students grouped into pods. In case you aren't aware, our new middle school model schedule has been created to support the change from elementary school to secondary. Because of this, students are grouped into pods where they share the same math, science, and English language art teacher. 

"The pod system is set up to provide students with a home-base, or community of students, as well as a core of teachers to supervise and work closely with these students. This is the first time for our entire school to be in Middle School. Everyone is new, and everyone is learning a secondary school model (class changes, lockers, lots of teachers, etc.). Within the pod, teachers may explicitly teach some organizational skills, communication skills, and general study skills." Click here for more from our Pod Vision.

The teachers have been able to collaborate and come up with some great ways to utilize this schedule. One such way was to bring students together during our September minimal day to review content (photo shown here). Another, more recent collaboration, involved some of the pods setting aside time to help students complete missing work at the end of the term, as well as celebrating the accomplishments of students during the term.

After School Program is Temporarily Canceled

Submitted by khristen.massic on Mon, 11/09/2020 - 08:30

Dear Parents and Students,

With the announcement of Governor Hebert's guidelines that took place last night at 9:30 PM.  We will be postponing the opening of our after school program until further notice.  We hope with these new guidelines, we will be able to do our part to slow the spread of the virus at this time.   

We will continue at school to do all we can to remain open, and provide deep levels of learning for all of our students.   We encourage our school community to be SMART, and help us in this effort.  

S - Stay and keep students home when sick.

M - Maintain clean spaces 

A - Advocate for distancing

R - Remember your face covering 

T - Train on hygiene and safety.

 

Sincerely,

MNMS Administration
