Learning can be Fun and Games!
Students are studying single cell and multi-cell organisms in their 5th grade human body unit. The game starts with one infectious piece of bacteria (student) and they tag other students to build their piece of bacteria. Once the piece of bacteria has four students, it splits (or reproduces) into two sets of two students. The game continues until everyone is infected.

Painted rocks are showing up all over the country as a way to pay it forward to an unsuspecting stranger. The concept is simple — paint a rock with a fun or inspirational message and then leave it at a public park, nature space, or neighborhood spot for someone else to find. It’s like a mix of Hide-and-Seek, Geo-Caching, and a treasure hunt.
Art ImpTime group has painted over 50 rocks and they are out in the community for you to find and post on the Mooresville Middle School Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram (@mooresvillems)!

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Concussion Research Fund to Benefit MGSD Student-Athletes
Mooresville High School senior volleyball and football players were invited to the Charlotte Motor Speedway to take part in the surprise announcement to Dale Earnhardt Jr. of the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Concussion Research Fund at Carolinas Healthcare System's Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. This fund was established by Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Speedway Children's Charities. According the the Press Release, the $100,000 gift will "underwrite ImPACT baseline concussion testing for more than 10,000 student athletes across eight area counties as well as Johnson C. Smith University and Gardner-Webb University."
"Mooresville High School – which Earnhardt attended – will also be added to the comprehensive program, which will also fund cutting-edge “blink reflexometry” research – which uses a person’s blinking reflexes to diagnose concussions. Additionally, the gift will support local concussion seminars for parents, students, coaches and pediatricians."
After the press announcement, our students were invited to eat and take pictures in victory circle! Thank you to Charlotte Motor Speedway for thinking to invite MHS as Dale Jr's alma mater!
