Mount Pleasant ISD Schedules Back to School Nights
Mount Pleasant Independent School District campuses announce their Meet the Teacher/Back to School Nights.
All MPISD campuses have scheduled Meet the Teacher Open Houses. These events will allow parents to drop off school supplies, visit their child’s classroom and have the opportunity to meet their child’s teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. Individual campus school supply lists are posted on the MPISD website (www.mpisd.net).
“We encourage parents to bring their students to our Meet the Teacher nights,” said Dr. Judi Saxton, MPISD Director of Communications. “These Open Houses give students the opportunity to locate their new classrooms and to get to know who their teachers are going to be. The beginning of a new school year is always exciting but it can also be a bit scary, particularly for our younger students. Giving them the opportunity to familiarize themselves with where they will be spending the new school year makes that first day of school more comfortable.”
Parents are also encouraged to take the time to spend a few minutes talking to their child’s teacher. “Putting a face to the name of their child’s teacher and learning a little bit about them will make future contact between parent and teacher easier,” Saxton added.
The MPISD Meet the Teacher Open House Schedule is as follows:
Child Development Center (CDC) Wednesday (Aug 8) from 10:00 am – 6:30 pm;
Annie Sims Elementary School: Thursday (Aug 9), 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm;

“There are two other important events that take place on Monday (Aug 13) – MPHS Freshman Orientation or Tiger Camp and the annual Meet the Tigers Pep Rally the at Willie Williams Gymnasium on the MPHS campus,” Saxton added
“All incoming ninth-grade students to Mount Pleasant High School are invited to attend Freshman Orientation (Tiger Camp) on the MPHS campus that day,” she said. “The camp will begin at 3:00 pm in the High School auditorium and end at 5:00 pm. Students will receive their schedules for the school year, get valuable information for their upcoming year at MPHS and will be given a campus tour. The camp is free and is always a fun time for our new Tiger Freshmen.”
“The Meet the Tigers pep rally will take place on Monday (Aug 13) beginning at 7:00 pm in the Willie Williams Gymnasium on the MPHS campus and the community is invited to attend,” Saxton added. “This pep rally gives all of us the opportunity to see the 2018-2019 Goin’ Gold Band, Tiger Dolls, and Cheerleaders and to meet the athletes who will be participating in all MPHS Sports. I encourage everyone to come out and support them.”
