For Convocation this year, we celebrated how Mount Airy City Schools has changed and grown over the years. Current and previous students spoke. MACS Teacher of the Year, and MAHS graduate, Nicole Hooker and graduate Will Pfitzner inspired staff through their stories as students and experiences after graduation. Check out our highlights from the event below.
2019-2020 School Year Begins
Check out our #MAfirstday video! Since the first day of school our students have met new teachers, made new friends, and enjoyed warm, delicious lunches. Some students have already had picture day, joined a club, practiced with a team, or attended a school event. We have had an amazing start to the school year and can't wait to see all of the opportunities and adventures that the 2019-2020 school year holds for students and staff.

Students completed over 8,500 service learning hours last year! This year's starting date for tracking hours is Saturday, June 18, 2019. Download a form from the site below as well as learn your school's contact.
This summer our School Nutrition Department served 3,256 breakfast meals, 12,266 lunches, and 5,659 snacks!
Summer Camps - Enriched Learning
This summer we offered 24 FREE summer camps for students. This included free meals and transportation. Students had options that ranged from drone camp to Hawaii camp to opportunities to connect with local businesses and much more!
Summertime is the perfect time for major updates to facilities. A few highlights from the summer; Mount Airy Middle School installed a new HVAC system, Jones Intermediate began HVAC installation, Mount Airy High School refurbished their gym floor, and Tharrington Primary had exterior work completed near the kindergarten pod.
Senior Parking Spaces
For the first time, seniors at Mount Airy High School got the opportunity to claim their space in a creative way. Check out the article found in The Mount Airy News.
