Director's Message

MICS Families,
 
I would like to recognize a significant achievement by a member of our school community. Jake Wilson, Middle/High School Principal, has recently successfully completed the Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership (EdD) program at Appalachian State University! Dr. Wilson's research through his dissertation focused primarily on middle school teachers who experienced growth during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. His findings demonstrate a strong correlation between individual success and positive character traits such as resiliency, flexibility, collaboration, and reflective practice. Please join us in celebrating this accomplishment and the value that Dr. Wilson brings to Mountain Island Charter School! 
 
Also, don't forget that school will be closed to all students on Monday, February 19, for the Presidents Day holiday and on Tuesday, February 20, for a teacher workday. Enjoy your long weekend!
 
Glenn Byrum
Executive Director
