State Test dates are April 28-May1. Parents need to make sure their kids get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast on those days so they will be at their best for testing. The deadline for the ACT test on June 13th is May 8.
All students who are enrolling in the sixth and ninth grades in the 2009-2010 school year will be required to complete the enrollment process at Mooreville Middle School and Mooreville High School. A parent or guardian must bring two proofs of residency and all other documents that are required by Lee County Schools. This process is required for those students that will be new to Mooreville and for Mooreville's current students.

As of April 29, we have 17 school days left until graduation, which will be on May 23 at 7 p.m. in the BancorpSouth Arena. Our seniors are eagerly anticipating this upcoming date.
This time of year is when students are excited about summer, senior trips and just hanging out with each other in general, so everyone really needs to drive safely. Please remember that seat belts save lives, and driving the speed limit will help make sure we reach our destinations in a safe manner. Let's all Buckle up for Bud.
