Mooresville Graded School District

A glimpse at the good stuff happening in our schools!

Welcome Spring!

Happy Spring, Mooresville Graded School District! As we wrap up the third quarter and welcome the Spring season, MGSD is busy continuing to challenge our students throughout the district in a variety of ways. From math to art to engineering, it is happening right here in our public school system. Make sure to ask your students what they are learning in class or how they are enjoying the extra-curricular activities they are involved in this season. And, of course, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us! :-)

South Stars Raise Money with their Fun Run!

The South Stars raised $30,000 with their Fun Run to use toward a new playground structure! While this is a big win for South, Dr. Cottone made some interesting promises to the students if they reached their goals... Think Fear Factor, lunch, and then watch the video to see how Dr. Cottone has to pay up! Great job, South Stars!

Gardening is a Science at EMIS

Sometimes the best way to learn is through hands-on experience. East Mooresville Intermediate School started a 5th Grade garden with the help of “Harvest Organics," a local company in Mooresville. Teachers and students are using the garden to teach and learn math and science concepts. What a great way to kick off the Spring!

MIS Partners with the Dove House for Student Safety Education

Fifth grade students at Mooresville Intermediate School participated in an intervention program called "Safety First,” offered by the Dove House of Iredell County. It was designed to help students know what is safe and not safe as related to their own bodies. It also touched on Internet and Social Media Safety. Thank you to the Dove House and Ms. Allegra Hope for providing this awesome opportunity for our students! ​
