Mock Trial Team
Mock Trial Team Goes to Competition!

Congratulations to the MPMS Mock Trial team. Since the start of school this year they have been preparing attorney questions and witness roles as well as meeting three times every week after school. They have put in hours of their own time outside of school and practice times. They performed very well at competition on November 4th.  Fifty-six teams across the state competed for only 8 spots in state finals competition. MPMS was selected as an alternate for state level competition. This is a major accomplishment for a team only in its second year.

 On competition day peer awards were given out for most effective witness and most effective attorney. These awards were decided on by each opposing team. The MPMS most effective attorney for both rounds of competition was Kelsey Hall. The MPMS most effective witnesses were Aidan Little and Vivian Padget. Mrs. McKinney also recognized Sawyer Austin as a most valuable participant to the team. He was always ready to practice, flexible and willing to take on any role necessary for team success. 

 Thank you to the 2016 MPMS Mock Trial team for a great competition performance: Sawyer Austin, Nadiya Berryman, Abby Bulger, Kristin Culp, Parker Fields, Kelsey Hall, Ayden Hooks, Aidan Little, Vivian Padget, Kaidyn Waggoner, and Reagan Waggoner.

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.

We just completed a very successful School Zone Card Fundraiser sponsored by the MPMS PTSO. Mr. Farrar agreed to go up on the roof for a day if our school sold more than $20,000 worth of the cards. We raised over $22,000 so Mr. Farrar spent Wednesday, September 28 on the roof. Homeroom winners were: 6th Grade-Mrs. Jones; 7th Grade-Ms. Sirse; and 8th Grade-Ms. Hauber. These homerooms were treated to a Pizza Party!
