    Our governor has proclaimed September 14-20 NC Arts in Education Week. Thank you Governor McCrory, for being the first Governor to recognize Arts in Education Week and the abiding value of ensuring that every child in North Carolina has a complete education that includes arts training, arts integration, and arts exposure.

    The arts are an essential part of a complete education, no matter if it happens in the home, school, or community. Students of all ages – from kindergarten to college to creative aging programs – benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity. Celebrating National Arts in Education Week is a way to recognize this impact and share the message with friends, family, and communities.

Each School Zone Pack contains both a Discount Card and a Coupon Sheet that is a collection of the most popular merchants in our local area.The customer receives two items when they purchase the package from the student. The first item is the COUPON SHEET; the second item is the DISCOUNT CARD. The person then may use the Discount Card over and over again, and then use the coupons to save even more money. Each student is responsible for returning the items not sold. Cost of School Zone package is $20.00. Students collect cash/check at time order is placed. Turn in dates are September 11, September 18, and September 25. Click here to see a list of prizes that students can win!

  • Band

    8th Grade Students Compete With High School Band

    On October 17 the Mt. Pleasant High School marching band participated in the Mooresville Band Competition. The show this year is titled “Fire” and is specifically a show to remember and honor the ladies and gentlemen that serve our communities, as well as communities everywhere. Here are the placements: Percussion – 1st place; Marching – 1st Place; Color Guard – 1st Place; General Effect – 1st Place; Overall Class (out of 4 bands) – 1st Place; and Grand Champion (out of 15 bands)!!!!!!!!

    The season started with Rookie Camp in May, where all those interested started learning the basics of marching. June and July were optional band workouts and opportunities to learn the music for the show. The very first Monday of August started the 2 weeks of full band camp. The students worked from 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday learning the show.

    Starting with the beginning of school, the students travel to the high school every day to practice. On Fridays the students participate in the Friday night football games by not only performing the show but also providing music in the stands to support the high school football game. Saturdays consist of competitions. Competitions are a daylong event.

    These nine 8th grade students have been participating and performing with the high school marching band. Whereas the high school students have a band class during the day to practice, these students must practice extra outside of school just to keep up. They have been working very hard and it is paying off.

    On October 10th the band competed at the Bands of America Regional Competition in Winston Salem. The band did very well with placing 1st in their class.

    The marching band will perform on October 24th at Newton-Conover High School and will be traveling down to Atlanta at the end of the month for the Bands of America Competition. They will also perform at the home football games at MPHS – come and support your classmates!!!!!

  • Hour of Code Hour of Code
     We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago. That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our 6th graders participated during their math classes on Thursday, December 10. Our 7th graders participated during math class and our 8th graders participated during science classes on Friday, December 11. If you would like to join in with the activities that they did you can find them at https://code.org/learn .

  • Monday, April 25

    Dear Mount Pleasant Parents.

    I wanted to inform you of an event that transpired this morning. Mt. Pleasant Middle was evacuated by local law enforcement due to a security threat. There were approximately 35 staff members in the building at the time. Students were diverted to the stadium as they arrived to school. After a thorough search of the school building, we were given the all clear for staff and students to enter the school building. 

    All staff and students entered the building at around 9:50 A.M. and we resumed our normal Monday activities. We appreciate your patience this morning with the delay of the school day. I am very proud of how our students and staff responded to the adjustment of our schedule. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call me at 704-436-9302.

    Thank you for all your support.

  • Keith Goodbye Mr. Lee! We Will Miss You!

    It is with mixed emotions that we are saying goodbye to Keith Lee as he takes a military leave of absence to be placed on active duty for the North Carolina Army National Guard. These military orders are for three years and Mr. Lee will be working out of the Gastonia Armory. He has been the band director at MPMS and the assistant band director at MPHS for the past twelve years. He works diligently to make sure all of his students are successful in the band program. Mr. Lee is a leader in the band community and sets a tone of excellence with his students as they prepare for contests and concerts. He is resourceful and always seeks methods to improve the band program at MPMS each year.

    Mr. Lee would like to share the following message with his MPMS family: “I want to thank you all for being such great colleagues to work with. I have made many friends here that I will hold dear for life. As you can imagine, I am experiencing a mix of emotions. I am excited about this new opportunity but saddened to leave a program that I have worked so long with and have put a lot of sweat equity in to. I will miss the staff, the students, and this community. It has been an honor to have been given an opportunity to work with such great people.”

    What should I bring back to school in August?
    After reading at least three books you should have three tasks completed and the tic-tac-toe board from the student packet of information.
