Rocky River Elementary School Brings History to Life!
Third grade students at RRES just finished presenting their Gateway projects at the Living History Museum. Every third grade student chose someone who has made a positive impact on our society. They conducted research with both digital and print resources. For the museum, students created a speech, a visual representation/poster, and a digital presentation while at school. They created their costumes at home. Visitors consisting of both family members and community members toured the museum. The entire project was a success! Check out two our our students presenting in the videos below. Great job to all RRES third grade racers!

MMS Students Represent the District at NCTIES Conference
Students in the Mooresville Middle School Computer Science Discoveries class learn valuable problem solving and technology skills to become computer programmers. This introductory course empowers students to learn first hand how to problem solve, communicate, and create unique artifacts such as mock apps, live webpages, and computerized games and animations. This class also incorporates ELA, Math, Digital Citizenship, Global Awareness, and Career Exploration as major themes throughout the course. Student work is regularly peer reviewed and then shared with authentic audiences upon completion.
On Thursday, March 1, six students represented MMS at the NC Technology in Education conference in the student showcase section. They were able to share what they have learned with educators and administrators from all over North Carolina.
Congratulations to Joseph Attanucci, Caroline Howard, Mandy Abercrombie, Dylan Armendariz, Zainab Barrie, and Clark Kremar for representing MGSD so well!
