6th grade Panther’s Team Gives Back!

Mrs. Haney’s 6th grade ELA classes read the book A Long Walk to Water. The book is about a young boy from Africa who is a refugee trying to survive while his country is at War. He comes to America, but wants to help his people back home get clean drinking water and begins building wells across Africa. Mrs. Haney’s class wanted to help give clean water to Africa as well and raised money to give to the organization Garrett’s Heart. Please watch the video to see the story unfold.

BYOT, or Bring Your Own Technology,
is an initiative of Cabarrus County Schools to allow students and staff to bring their own devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, e-readers, iPads, iPods, smart phones, etc.) to school to use for instructional purposes and school business.  The faculty and staff of Mt. Pleasant Middle School want to encourage students to assess their own learning needs and be able to determine which tools(devices and online tools) will successfully meet their needs.  We believe students are capable of making intelligent, innovative, and appropriate choices.
Before students may bring their own devices to school, parents and students must read our BYOT guidelines and complete an online form that is available by clicking here.
