Students and staff of Mossy Head School enjoyed dressing up as their favorite book character and parading around the school for parents and visitors. Students also displayed a word that described their character on their costume. Our annual Character Parade helps promote and celebrate reading at MHS!

Congratulations to Paul Dillon for receiving the Student of the Month Award for October! Paul is a model student in the classroom and a great friend to his peers. We are very proud of you, Paul!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We would like to invite all of our families to Mossy Head School’s “DADS TAKE YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL DAY” event on Thursday, October 8, 2015.  We encourage all fathers to attend the grade level activity planned for their child. Activities will be scheduled in 20 minute increments per grade level to allow dads to visit all of their children’s classrooms on this day. 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.

It’s time for our FALL BOOK FAIR! Our book fair will begin on Monday, October 26th and will end on Friday, October 30th. Students will receive a flyer with books that will be available at the book fair for purchase. If you are sending money to school for students to purchase books, please remember to add 7.5% tax onto your order. Please make checks payable to Mossy Head School. Since fall fling tickets will also be on sale that week, please put Book Fair money in an envelope with your child’s name/teacher and “Book Fair” written on the front. Students will be able to come during normal media center hours and purchase from the book fair. Please see special times below for parents to visit the book fair with their child.  

The book fair is also available online again this year at This is a great way to get out of town family and friends involved in our book fair! Books ordered online will be delivered to the school 7-10 business days after the book fair ends. I am looking forward to an awesome, fun-filled week!

Happy Reading,

Mrs. Heather Simmons, Media Specialist

Granola with Grandparents

September 24, 2015

Students invited their grandparents to school on Friday, September 18th to enjoy breakfast with them for a Grandparent's Day celebration!

Mossy Head School hosted their annual Open House and Reading Night on September 10th. Parents were invited to visit their child’s classroom to be a part of the Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT) and set goals for their child’s learning this school year. Title I provided resources for parents to take home to help their child reach their reading goals. With parents and teachers working together, MHS will surely reach their Destination….Learning!

Dear Commissioner Imfeld,

I would like take the opportunity on behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of the Mossy Head School to thank you for the new paved walking path. The walking path is a great new asset to the community and a much needed improvement. The walking path provides a much safer route for students and teachers as they travel from the school to the county park for various school activities.

Please express our appreciation to the Board of County Commissioners and all others that had a part in making this project a success.
