MPMS Family,
A big THANK YOU to all who have donated items for our EOG Test Fest. We are still in need of a few more items:

* straight 2x4 boards (to make giant Jenga)
* red, black, and white spray paint (and any other colors, but definitely those three)
* 8- 60 inch wooden stakes
*1 roll of construction netting
We also could probably use a few hula hoops.

Please contact Amber Price or Ali Hylton if you have questions or to donate. Amber.price@cabarrus.k12.nc.us; Alison.hylton@cabarrus.k12.nc.us

MPMS Stagecrafters Participated in the NC Theatre Conference Festival
 
Stagecrafters

On Saturday, March 18, the MPMS Stagecrafters participated in the North Carolina Theatre Conference Middle School Play Festival at Spirit Square in Charlotte, NC. At the NCTC Middle School Play Festival, schools from all across the state come together to share their talents and celebrate their collective achievements. Following their performance, students received verbal and written feedback from industry experts. When not performing, students watched performances from other schools, learned from their peers and made new theatre friends. The MPMS Stagecrafters received the "Excellence in Movement" Award for their play production of "School Daze" and they received the "Festival Spirit" Award. We are so proud of our theatre students!

Jakob Craver Jakob Craver Wins Gold in App Cup Snowboarding
 
Congratulations to Jakob Craver, a 7th grade student in Mr. Hahn's homeroom, for winning the gold in the overall point standing in the App Cup snowboarding competition this past weekend. He is a member of the Mt. Pleasant snowboard team and has been racing in the USASA boarder cross events. This is a national series that is the "big show" for skiing and snowboarding. He has been doing really well and has qualified for the national event which takes place on April 4th. This is a huge competition with tons of nationally ranked competitors. Even Olympian hopefuls are in it, so it is a great chance to see "what he's got". Good Luck Jakob!!!
Ms. Caitlin Sirse, 2017 MPMS Teacher of the Year
 Sirse

Every year the faculty and staff vote for Teacher of the Year. This year, the MPMS honor went to Ms. Caitlin Sirse, 7th grade ELA teacher. Prior to earning her Master of Arts Degree in Education from Kent State University in 2011, she earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Photojournalism. She believes her background and interest in visual journalism helps tie current events and creativity into her lessons. Ms. Sirse completed her student teaching and first year at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent before relocating to sunny North Carolina. She was a little nervous adjusting to middle school life when she moved here, but can’t imagine being anywhere else now. She has two favorite teaching moments. The first – the moment she helps a reluctant reader finally find the “perfect” book. The second – when her students surprise her with new concepts from her own lessons. When she’s not in the classroom, she enjoys hiking, photography, Cleveland sports and chocolate. Congratulations, Ms. Sirse!  

camera WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We would like to share some of the many wonderful memories made in our beloved school in a slide show during our Farewell to MPMS Celebration in the spring. We have lots of pictures from its time as a middle school, but we need your help collecting some from its high school years. If you have pictures from MPHS life before 1992, please send them to elizabeth.canup@cabarrus.k12.nc.us. Thanks for helping make our Farewell Celebration a success!

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.
Lunch Application
 
Now you can apply on-line for your children to receive free or reduced price school meals. Your application will be sent from this secure web site directly to your school district, so you don’t need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced. LunchApplication.com is designed to make it easy for you to know exactly what information you need to provide and to guide you through the process. Your school district will determine your eligibility and send you a letter with the results. LunchApplication.com is an easy, secure and convenient way to apply for free or reduced lunch.
Immunization Requirements
 
Students entering the 7th grade are required to have the following immunizations prior to the start of the school year 2016-17:
