eLearning Day - October 22, 2025

From the Principal:

It actually feels like fall today, well "Low Country" fall, but cooler than we're used to! It won't last long, so take some time outside to enjoy the cool before we get back to our regularly scheduled weather pattern.


Next week is Red Ribbon Week. Each year schools around the nation pause to remind students to live a healthy and drug free life. We will celebrate a happy, healthy lifestyle, by showing our positive spirit all of next week.


  • Monday - School Picture Day - Drug Free and Dressed to Impress
  • Tuesday - Show your positivity - I'm happy, positive and drug free!
  • Wednesday - Be a Super Hero - Super Heroes don't do drugs (no masks or capes)
  • Thursday - Pink Out - Wear Pink to support breast cancer awareness (we encourage you to donate to a cancer awareness cause today!)
  • Friday - Casual Day - It doesn't matter what we wear, we're still drug free and fabulous!


We are so proud of our students. This year has started out with lots of students who haven't been in school in over a year. We getting into the swing of things and the students are rising to the occasion. I encourage you to make sure your afternoon school conversations are specific and encourage conversation and not just one word answers. Here are a few conversation starters for your evening/conversations.


  • What was your favorite part about school today?
  • What activity did you like the most today? And the least?
  • What did you think of the first assignment you had to do today?
  • If you could do any moment at school over today, what would it look like?
  • What was the funniest thing that happened in your class today?


Finally, I want to thank Sylvia Summer, for donating the original 1905 Mount Pleasant Academy certificate of incorporation back to MPA. As far as we can tell this is from William Scott and Sara Leland McConnell. It will be here in the main office for a couple of weeks if you would like to see it.


As always, take care of yourself!
