October is Down Syndrome Awareness month, so students and staff wore blue and yellow to show our support for Down Syndrome Awareness.  Down Syndrome Awareness month gives us the opportunity to spread awareness, advocacy and inclusion throughout our community.

Mossy Head School dads and dad representatives came out for "Dads Take Your Child to School" Day. Dads joined their children in super fun and challenging S.T.E.M. activities in their classes. From making their own bouncy balls, to stacking cups without using their hands, to building the tallest, strongest tower, students, teachers, and dads had a great time learning together!

Mossy Head School students, families, and staff came together for an exciting night of dinner, classroom visits, and math! Families gathered for dinner. Then, students took their families to show off their classrooms and visit with their teachers. The whole school gathered back together for some math station fun. Mr. Greg Tang Jr. and Mr. Jared Saavedra targeted building students' knowledge of critical math strategies and skills, while also giving them a chance to practice those strategies and skills in fun and engaging ways. They encourage both parents and students to think about numbers in new and fun ways together.

"Got Respect?"

September 16, 2019

“Got Respect?" Tour speaker, Christ Hollyfied, visited Mossy Head School to discuss with students the emotional and physical effects of bullying, and also how to recognize and avoid it among their peers. Chris uses his experiences, his life struggles, and stories to give students real life examples of bullying and how to overcome it so they can go on to be healthy and successful.

We would like to invite all of our families to Mossy Head School’s “DADS TAKE YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL DAY" event on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. We encourage all fathers to attend the grade level activity planned for their child. All father figures are welcomed, including stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and other significant role models. Although the event is centered on fathers, mothers and other family members are also welcome.

The intent of this initiative is to highlight the significant difference fathers and father figures can make by taking a more active role in their children’s educational experience. When fathers play a more active role in a child’s education, children perform better academically; have fewer discipline problems; and become more responsible adults. We hope all fathers will take this opportunity to become more familiar with our school and staff and that you will return often.

“DADS TAKE YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL DAY” is just one chance for us to shine the spotlight on dads and encourage men to get involved in the school setting. For more information about “DADS TAKE YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL DAY,” please contact Mossy Head School at 892-1290. We hope to have great attendance during this event.
