Curriculum Night at PVES!

Curriculum Night at Park View Elementary took a new spin this school year. Parents became students, and students became teachers! Park View teachers created a variety of centers based on standards that have been studied in class. PVES students brought their parents to Curriculum Night and "taught" them how and what they learn at school. Parents played Kahoot on laptops, made letters in sand, learned to work with base ten blocks and so much more! It was a very exciting night bringing staff, students, and teachers together... Take a look!

MIS Book Tasting

School Library Media Coordinator Kristina Thoennes planned a "book tasting" which gave students an opportunity to browse books of various genres. Decorations transformed part of the Media Center into "Cafe Genre," a delightful restaurant with red tablecloths, candles (battery-operated), light snacks, and French cafe music. The SMARTboard became a curtained window through which students could see the Eiffel Tower.


Each table had a selection of books from one fiction genre, varying in reading levels. Students surveyed the books to see what they were about and whether or not they would be a “good fit” for themselves. They recorded their thoughts on a hand out and had the opportunity to check out books at the end.


Various classes throughout the school participated in this awesome project!

One Mooresville, One Family

Our MHS athletic teams are working with the principals of our Kinder through 6th grade schools this year to find ways to connect with their younger MGSD family members throughout the year. On Friday morning, September 29, football and cheer team members went to RRES and MIS where they opened doors and greeted students in the car line and as they disembarked from the bus. We're not sure who enjoyed themselves more... our big kids or little kids! #oneMooresville#RRESRacers #MHSBlueDevils #IWasOnceLittleLikeYou#SomedayImGoingToBeBigLikeYou
