Mossy Head School was selected to receive Kid Comfort”, a custom-built cottage from Cottages for Kids, designed by HGTV’s Vern Yip. 


Cottages for Kids is a unique fundraising event in Rosemary Beach that benefits Children’s Volunteer Health Network, a faith based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to enhance the lives of uninsured and underinsured children by facilitating free, immediate access to medical, dental, vision and mental health care.  With tremendous imagination and craftsmanship, builders and architects come together to create, construct and decorate whimsical cottages that look like they have popped out from the pages of a fairytale to modern creations brimming with creativity.


Mossy Head School’s students are proud and excited to have this new addition to the playground. Thank you Cottages for Kids for your generosity!

MHS is proud to announce Blaze Menser as February's Student of the Month. Blaze sets a great example in and out of the classroom for his peers. Great job, Blaze!

The Mustang News hosted several guest readers on the morning show to read books to the entire school. Each day, students were reading books and taking Accelerated Reader tests. On Friday, the top 5 readers in each grade level, based on their Accelerated Reader tests, were chosen to come to the media center for a “pop-a-top and read” party, where students read magazines, chatted about their favorite books, and popped-a-top on their favorite soda. Third grade students from Mrs. Ness’, Mrs. Stahl’s, and Mrs. Cole’s classes participated in a presentation by Stacey Betts from the Walton County Health Department. During the presentation, students read a comic book about the importance of diet and exercise. The students of Mossy Head School showed their love for reading all week by celebrating literacy!
