Summer Reading Celebration
Summer Reading Celebration

Please join us in congratulating students who completed the summer reading program.  Over 250 students read three or more books this past summer.  At the end of last school year, students were given handouts in their report cards and were asked to complete the program.  Requirements included having students self-select both fiction and nonfiction books from a recommended reading list.  Then students completed specific activities that correlated with their books.  All work was due to English Language Arts teachers upon return to school this year.  In celebration, we are had an ice cream sundae party on school grounds.

Proceeds for this fundraiser will benefit the PTSO as they support our teachers with resources and school initiatives.

Clubs: We have just started surveying students about their interests in clubs. Our first club meeting is scheduled for September 11th for 7th and 8th grade and September 16th for 6th grades. Clubs will meet about three times per month and will take place during Venture time at the end of the day. Please ask your child about his or her involvement in these clubs.

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.
