Update on the New Mt. Pleasant Middle School
Cabarrus County Commissioners have approved the funding for the acquisition of the Heintz properties.  Cabarrus County Schools is proceeding with the acquisition of this property.  The MPMS site is now (officially) the Heintz property.  Currently the white house parcel is not included in the acquisition though we hope it will be acquired later.

Dear Mount Pleasant Middle Parents,


It is hard to believe this summer is almost over. I hope you are having a wonderful summer break and have gotten a chance to take some time off to spend with the family. The staff at Mount Pleasant has been working very hard in getting the school ready for the upcoming school year.


As you know, school starts on Monday, August 24th.  Our school hours for this coming year are 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. If you drive your child to school, you may drop them off after 8:30 A.M. The Mount Pleasant Middle Open House is scheduled for Wednesday, August 19th from 4:00P.M. to 6:00P.M. During this time you may pick up your child’s schedule and bus information, tour the school, and meet your child’s teachers.  


I am very proud of the progress our students made last year and we continue to work hard to help your children demonstrate growth this year.   There will be many new programs this year that will benefit your children academically, socially and improve our overall school climate.


I strongly believe in the students I serve at MPMS and I will continue to work hard to make this one of the best middle schools in our state. Please call me if you have any questions or concerns. Let us work together to make it a great year!

Farrar's Ride
School may have come to a close, but Mr. Farrar was hard at work racing his way to the front of the field as Charlotte Motor Speedway to kick off the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout with Principal School Bus Racing on the front stretch quarter-mile.  In addition, fans were treated to a full slate of Legend and Bandolero racing. Our students, parents, faculty, and community came out to cheer for our favorite principal as he drove this bus painted by Ms. Michele Turner and some of our students! He didn't repeat his win again this year but he is already gunning for next year!

Cabarrus County Public Library Summer Reading Program

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.
