MHS at the RCA!

December 13, 2019

Teachers from Mossy Head School made a trip to the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta for the RCA Experience. The RCA Experience is "an interactive, dynamic learning experience where educators observe live classes in action and attend workshops that focus on improving student engagement, academic rigor, and creating a climate and culture for success" (RCA.com). The teachers were able to observe and learn from some of the most innovative and progressive educators of our time including, Micheal Bonner, Kim Bearden, and Ron Clark. It was a truly once in a life time professional development experience.

Congratulations to our ESP and Teachers of the Year: Sasha Thomas (ESP of the Year), Kelli Adams (Elementary Teacher of the Year), and Brande Manning (Secondary Teacher of the Year). Our faculty and staff always BRING THEIR BEST!
Three MSE 5th graders start every day by writing and delivering the day’s menu, birthdays, weather, Pledge of Allegiance, and announcements.  And all this takes place before school starts at 7:50.  These highly responsible students are the 2019-2020 Morning Show Producers, and they are all business! Thank you to Henry, Ashley, and Alyssa, for starting everyone’s day off right at Maude Saunders!
