Safety Patrol - Students who are selected for Safety Patrol are on duty for two quarters during the school year.  Safety patrols are in charge of monitoring the hallways to make sure students at Mountain Island are following the school rules. They are also in charge of helping in the cafeteria during breakfast.  Each quarter, two students are chosen to be in charge of raising and lowering the United States flag and North Carolina  flag.  Mr. Nels is in charge of our safety patrol. For more information, contact Mr. Nels.





Girls on the Run of Charlotte is an experiential learning program that combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) run/walk event with a 24 lesson curriculum designed to promote good choices for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.  The lessons are designed specifically to address “girl box” issues and use warm-ups & workouts that encourage emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development and well-being. For more information, contact Mrs. Puckett.




Chess Club – This club is for students who want to have fun learning about and playing chess.  It is divided into groups by skill level ranging from the beginner who have never played before to those who have experience playing in tournaments. The club meets every other Friday mornings from 7:15-8:00. There is also a Chess Team for those who have reached a higher level of competition and participate in more challenging events.  Mr. Bobby Gray coaches the team. For more information, contact Mrs. Williams.




Mounty Leadership Team  - Members of student council are elected by their peers in third, fourth and fifth grade homeroom classes. From those members we will hold an election for secretary (3rd), vice president (4th), and president (5th). The student council has monthly service projects, they help with the volunteer luncheon and fifth grade achievement celebration. One of our big projects is the Fall canned food drive. For more information, contact Mrs. Williams.


Robotics Teams - Robotics teams are comprised of 3rd-5th Graders. Robotics teams are chosen in the spring before the current year. Students work all year to research and develop robots to solve a problem then compete in regional and state competitions. For more information contact Mrs. Long.



Math Olympiad - The goal of the Math Olympiad program is to stimulate enthusiasm and a love for mathematics, introduce important mathematical concepts, teach major strategies for problem solving, develop mathematical flexibility in solving problems, foster mathematical creativity and ingenuity and provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges. Students will participate in class to explore strategies and solve problems. For More information contact Mrs. Puckett.
