The Panther Prowl
Welcome to Mt. Nebo!
Students and Parents,
We feel the school year has started off well and students are ready to learn! We appreciate our teachers for the hard work they have put in to have classes and lesson's ready. The Panther Prowl is a weekly newsletter that is sent out usually on Monday afternoons and includes all the informationa about what is going on at the school! It is sent to all students and parents, who have included e-mail addreses. We would love to have all students and parents follow us on our social media sites:
So far this summer we have been introducing our new teachers on our website and social media. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, you can look at: https://mnms.nebo.edu/
How parents can help their student succeed in middle school
In the high-pressure, high-stakes game of school, it can be difficult to know which parenting strategies really promote learning. A successful experience in school is not only about report cards. Ideally your child will learn how to learn, retain information, think independently, ask questions and develop an increasing sense of competence. Here are some guidelines for making sure you start on the right foot and keep enthusiasm and momentum high throughout the school year.
There is so much to think about each school year, but above all else, these simple rules can help keep you focused on what’s most important for school success.
- Focus on the process, not the product.
- Encourage kids to self-advocate.
- Keep a long-term perspective.
- Maintain a healthy sleep schedule.
- Love the child you have, not the child you wish you had.
- Worship grades.
- Encourage helplessness.
- Compare kids to one another.
- Love kids based on their performance.

How to Help Your Child Succeed at School
By Jessica Lahey
A good portion of our school students ride a bus to and from school. We want to remind parents and students of a few things!
-Know your bus number!
-Line up in the appropriate lines after school.
-Students need to stay on concrete sidewalk.
-No pushing or shoving to get on the bus.
-Be aware and watch for your bus- you will have less than 7 minutes before it leaves.
-Students may only ride a different bus in emergency situations and we must know at the beginning of the day. We need acknowledgement from both student's parents before proceeding.
What Students did in the Summer!
