Hardly a day goes by now that Mountain Green Elementary School does not receive a call from interested parents who want to check out our school system. They are interested in buying homes in this area or wanting to build in our beautiful county. Working within such a wonderful school with tremendous parent support, great teachers and, most of all, terrific children, it is not hard to give them a stellar report of our school.
As school begins each year students are usually filled with excitement and enthusiasm to meet new friends and learn new things. Just the anticipation of a new class and seeing their old friends provides motivation to come to school during the first few weeks. Regrettably, after a few weeks some students begin to feel that regular attendance to school is not important. Sadly, but not usually intentionally, some parents also feel that missing a few days of school is not that important.
