Mooresville Graded School District

A glimpse at the good stuff happening in our schools!

Greetings MGSD Families!

When we start to see a lot of ghosts and pumpkins we know what time of year it is... End of the First Quarter! :-) Can you believe that we are finishing up the first nine-weeks of school on Tuesday, October 30? As a reminder, the end of the first quarter also signifies the start of our Fall break so there will be no school for students on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday next week. We do look forward to starting off our second quarter with all of our students on Monday, November 5.


It has been a great October and as you will see in some of the videos below, we certainly changed MGSD from BLUE to ORANGE for Bullying Prevention Month. If you would like more information regarding bullying, this site by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center has some great resources: https://www.pacer.org/bullying/resources/sites-for-kids-and-teens.asp.


We hope all of our families enjoy the break and enjoy time together! Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your children and never hesitate to let us know if you have any questions!

RRES Parents Take a Lap in their Child's Day!

Rocky River Elementary school parents had the opportunity to see what their child's day looks like by going through the different parts of their child's schedule. The students led the parents and helped them with the math, reading, and all the great things they are learning each day! It was a wonderful event for all involved!

Learning can be Fun!

Teachers at Mooresville Intermediate School have been challenging themselves to step outside of the box to provide engaging and memorable experiences for their students. They have been busy “transforming” their classrooms!


Ms. Silvestri transformed her classroom into a pizzeria where the students were the chefs while practicing multiplicative comparisons. Ms. DeVerna treated students to a book tasting set up as the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to get her students excited about reading new books. Finally, Ms. Sharpley revamped her classroom for “Glow Day” to help students review for their upcoming benchmark assessment! What an awesome experience for their students!
