You can bring lunch such as fast food, food from a restaurant, pack your lunch or just enjoy the time sitting with your child and their friends. Please check in with the front office, and meet your child in the cafeteria. The media center will be set up as a place to eat for this event or you may eat in the quad.

Tiger TV

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.
Order Your Mt. Pleasant Spirit Wear!
 
You can order Mt. Pleasant Middle School Spirit Wear by going online to www.graphixauthority.com or by downloading the order form. You may bring the order form and money and turn in to the office at MPMS.
PLEASE MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO GONE GREEK (not MPMS)!
