Kinders teaching Parents!

Last week, RRES Kindergarten parents had a chance experience what a kindergarten day is like... led by Kindergarten students! The parents were guided into different classrooms where they participated in multiple literacy stations. Skills and strategies that are used at school were shared so that parents and students can practice at home as well. To top it all off, there was pizza served! What a great night for our Kinder Racers!

We Are Family!

On Tuesday, February 6, South Stars had a family game night! Three hundred and thirty (330) people enjoyed playing board games, card games, doing STEM activities, playing basketball, bowling and much more! We also raffled off several board games for families to take home and enjoy together. Not only was this fun for the whole family, but it also gave our Stars practice taking turns, sharing, and being a team player. We feel that these skills will help set our South Stars up for success for the years to come. Thank you to everyone for coming out and making this a special night for our families and staff!

Learning together!

At East Mooresville Intermediate School, 4th and 5th grade students participated this past week in a seminar about “Being the One!" Students learned about working as a team, showing respect, and being a leader in their school and community. After hearing from the guest speaker and working in teams to solve problems, students set goals for themselves to continue their learning as they continue their school year. It was a great learning experience that we know will be change agent within our building!

MIS has been going MIT to learn programming!

After an introduction to MIT's SCRATCH programming website from Ms. Thoennes, Mr. Cooley's fifth grade science classes used it to create animations that demonstrate the water cycle. They were given a very basic project with a sun, raindrop, cloud, and backdrop. Each of them made very creative explanations of the water cycle! Here are a few examples of our students' work... Make sure you when you go to the project, you click on the "See inside" box in the upper right corner so you can get a glimpse of what the students did to make the animation come to life!
