Mooresville Graded School District

A glimpse at the good stuff happening in our schools!

Greetings MGSD Families!

With the warmer weather finally arriving, thoughts quickly turn to time outside and the approaching summer. It can become easy to get distracted from classroom studies as daydreams of having fun outdoors take over our minds. It is important, however, for all of us -- administrators, staff, and students -- to stay focused during this spring stretch to summer vacation. Make sure you take time to enjoy the outdoors as the weather becomes sunnier and warmer when you have the opportunity. If you need some sunshine but also need to study, settle in on your porch or patio. Sometimes the best classroom can be found outdoors! We are in the homestretch, let's hit it out of the park! :-)

Whether celebrating teachers or fundraising, it's a busy time at PVES!

The Park View Patriots have been busy celebrating! They announced their Teacher of the Year, Beginning Teacher of the Year, and Teacher Assistant of the Year. They also had a visit from Acrofitness and some of PVES students got the change to showcase their dancing skills.

The PVES Boosterthon is in full swing and students at Park View are raising money for a new rock climbing wall and getting some exercise, too!

RRES celebrates their teachers and races for funds!

Rocky River Elementary school celebrated some amazing staff members by announcing their Instructional Assistant, Beginning Teacher, and Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year. We are truly blessed to have such an amazing group of people work together for the success of your kiddos!

The student also participated in the Boosterthon Fun Run last week. The kids had a fantastic time listening to the upbeat music and running to raise money for a new playground surface!

Thank you to these South Shining Stars!

There are a lot of special people that help make our South Stars shine bright! South Elementary School is so proud to recognize Cheryl McCrorey (Teacher of the Year), Rebecca Howard (Beginning Teacher of the Year), and Margaret Rollins (Instructional Assistant of they Year). They do so much for all of our students everyday! Take a look at what is going on in their classrooms!

EMIS holds Evening with the Arts

East Mooresville Intermediate School hosted their Evening with the Arts on Thursday, April 26. The evening featured visual, as well as performing arts! From jump rope routines to singing, the evening was a success. The arts are so important to educating the whole child!

MIS shows American pride while making MGSD proud!

The Mooresville Intermediate School Bobcat Chorus was honored to sing the National Anthem at the Charlotte Checkers game on April 7, 2018. The students sounded wonderful, and it allowed them to raise money to purchase new instruments for the music room! Shout-out to Ms. Jack for the great job she does with the MIS music program. Way to go Bobcats!

MMS Career Pathways

Mooresville Middle School realizes that students are interested in exploring careers long before graduating from high school. This year they have implemented a Career Pathways class that the students are loving!

MHS Big Kids teaching our South Little Kids (and vice-versa)!

Ms. Lindsay Smith’s Marine Science class travelled to South Elementary School to read stories that they had created to their younger counterparts! It is always wonderful to see our Bigs and Littles working and learning together! :-)

MHS Devil's Dozen

Mooresville High School is home to successful students, and the seniors are no exception. Each year an extraordinary group of seniors are selected based on character, leadership, and academic performance. The MHS faculty nominates students based on these qualities, and their participation in extracurricular activities both inside and outside of school. Then, students with the most nominations are selected to be voted on for a second time by the faculty to determine who receives this honor. They are featured and their accomplishments are highlighted in the senior section of The Pitchfork, Mooresville’s yearbook.

Family Fun Question Cube

Communication is key to creating strong youth. Below is a fun game to cultivate communication and thinking. Invite everyone in your family or some friends to take a turn rolling the Question Cube. Get to know new things about each person and share some fun facts about you! You can download the template at the link directly below!
