MMS Late Work Plan

Teachers have the option to lock assignments after the dates listed. If a teacher locks an assignment students will not be able to complete the assignment. We encourage all students to submit their assignments by the original due date.

MMS Yearbook

Many teachers have the privilege to meet your child's pets this year during virtual meetings! The yearbook wants to highlight these pets as well. We want pictures of your child with their pets! It doesn't matter whether they are dogs, cats, guinea pigs, lizards, snakes, or any other unique pet your child may take care of!


What to submit: Pictures of your student with his or her pets!


IMPORTANT: Please make sure the pictures only include Mooresville Middle School students. If you take a picture of your student during class, please make sure their Google Meet is not in the background. Pictures should include only your student or their siblings if they are MMS students. If you have any questions please email Mr. Cline at michaelcline@mgsd.k12.nc.us

Benchmark Exams January 11-15.

NC CHECK IN #2 (Jan 11-15)

Next week, our students will be taking the NC Check-Ins Online. The main purpose of these resources is to provide parents, guardians, teachers, and students with an indication of your child’s knowledge.


On Monday, students will take their ELA Check-In, Tuesday their math check-in, Thursday their Science Check-In, and on Friday they will take Social Studies.


You and your student will receive emails throughout the week with individual access codes and directions to access the Check-In the day before it begins. Students will be able to access the Check-In at 1PM each day.


To accommodate these tests, we are on a modified schedule next week.

Mindful Mondays

On Mondays, 7-12 students will have an “off class” from live instruction based on a scheduled rotation. Your teachers will tell you when your class will be off. You need to attend all other classes on Mondays. During your off class, choose an activity from the menu to help you start your week off right!
