Please note this important schedule change for this Friday, May 10. As many of you are aware, one of our Mooresville Police Officers was killed in the line of duty this past weekend. His services will be held this Friday in Charlotte with a processional back to and through Mooresville following the services. We have been in contact with Iredell County Emergency Services, and they indicate that the processional will be made up of 2200 to 2500 emergency vehicles from across the country and be approximately 15 miles long. This processional will greatly affect traffic in the Mooresville area from approximately 1:00 until after 4:00pm. Due to bussing logistics and to show support for Officer Sheldon, we will need to release school early on Friday, May 10. Mooresville High School and Mooresville Middle School will release at 11:00am. Our elementary and intermediate schools will release at 12 noon. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our parents; however, we know you will understand considering the circumstances. Thank you.

It's that time of year again!  As we get closer to registration dates for rising 7th graders, we hope your students consider taking Band at Mooresville Middle School.  The Mooresville Middle School Band has a tradition of excellence, and accepts anyone interested and willing to learn how to play an instrument (no prior experience required)!  

Mr. Gudger, the middle school band director, will be holding two informational nights for perspective students to try out the four instruments that they can start on: Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, and Trombone.  The students can then select the instrument that interests them the most, and sign up for band in the same night!  

Instrument testing nights will be on Wednesday, March 26th and Thursday, March 27th from 4-7pm in the Mooresville Middle School Band Room.  

If you or your student are interested in joining band, please fill out the following Google Form (especially if you CANNOT attend the instrument testing nights):
