It’s hot outside, as should be expected toward the end of summer break. Parents and kids alike are starting to think about heading back to school (okay maybe the parents are looking forward to it more than the kids are). Summer 2015 is coming to an end and the 2015-2016 school year is about to begin. This is the perfect time to check out school calendars, create school supply shopping lists and get a jump start on one of the busiest times of the year.
Mooresville is lucky enough to have two wonderful school systems that service our area. Mooresville Graded School District (MGSD) and Iredell – Statesville School System (ISS).
Mooresville Graded School District classes begin on August 24, 2015. Here is a link to the MGSD school calendar for 2015-2016 school year. Information on enrollment into MGSD can be found here. The MGSD lunch program payment information center can be found here. MGSD has a wonderful before and after school program for grades K-6 which also holds a summer camp for students. Specific school supply lists links are as follows: Rocky River Elementary School, Park View Elementary School, South Elementary‘s supply lists are broken down by grade levels – Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Third Grade. East Mooresville Intermediate is also broken down by grade levels 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade. Mooresville Intermediate School supply lists by grade level may be found here.
