Our Dream for Mooresville's Fine & Performing Arts (summer 2017)

Next Steps....

The MGSD K-12 Fine Arts Team wants to take the "What Ifs" from our conversations this week and create a Vision Statement to display in our classrooms and in our new Performing Arts Center.

This would be a vision through which our colleagues, community members and visitors can recognize our desire to "empower learning, unleash talent and lead a culture of creativity" within the Mooresville Graded School District. (quote from title of "The Innovator's Mindset")

Moving Forward....

Creating our Vision is possible by sustaining collaborative efforts on the part of all K-12 fine and performing arts teachers. A few teachers were unable to be with us this week; therefore, we'd like an opportunity to share with them what we've already accomplished and give them a chance to add to and enhance our vision.

Thank you for giving us the Deep Dive time this week! It has been the spark we needed to link our programs together. We look forward to hearing from MGSD administrative leaders on how to continue our adventure.
