Mooresville Graded School District

A glimpse at the good stuff happening in our schools!

Behind every number is a child...

With the end-of-year testing upon us, we realize the stress that it can cause for our students, parents, and teachers. And while we are held accountable by the State of North Carolina for our performance on these tests, we also want to always remember that behind every number is a child, and our children are why we are here doing what we do. So over the next few weeks as we finish off another school year, let's all take time to encourage our students. Let's make sure they know that we believe in them. Let's remind them that while we want them to do their very best on these tests, tests are not what defines them. Because at the end of the day and at the end of this year, while we may be accountable to the State of North Carolina, we are first and foremost accountable to doing right by every child, every day! :-)

MIS 6th Grade Students are Problem Solvers!

This year for their Gateway Projects, Mooresville Intermediate School 6th grade students participated in problem-based learning as part of our mission to grow global citizens and future leaders. Modeled after Google’s Genius Hour, students had the task of identifying, researching, and solving a problem in our community, state, or nation. Topics ranged from animal abuse to poverty to car recalls. Congratulations to our 6th grade students and their teachers on their hard work and successful completion of this year’s projects!

At MMS the ARTS are vital to core learning!

In Amy McComas' Theater Arts classes at Mooresville Middle School, students have practiced their literacy skills by reading one-act plays and performing for their peers. The students create story maps from the one-act scripts, analyze character perspective and use inferencing to develop their character for performance. Their audiences consisted of peers and parents. In this video, Naomi M. shares insight on how this project is collaborative, involves student choice and enhances their confidence in speaking in front of an audience.

MHS Spanish Students use VR Glasses to Experience a Different Culture

Mooresville High School Spanish II students took a tour of Chile. They travelled from the capital of Chile (Santiago) all the way to Valparaíso. After seeing Valparaíso, they went all the way to the Valle Nevada to see the western slopes of the Andes mountains! And they were still home in time for dinner! #ExperiencingTheWorldViaVirtualReality
