A total of $17,814.45 was collected to purchase instructional supplies and materials for Pre-K/Head Start-sixth grade. Mountain City Elementary School would like to thank the students, staff, parents, volunteers, community, NECC, McDonald’s, Tweetsie, the Aquarium of the Smokies, and the Titantic for supporting this event.
With more than six decades of commitment to education excellence, Mountain City Elementary is proud of its heritage and tradition and we are dedicated to the total development of every Pre K/Head Start through sixth grade student. A Title I school with an economically disadvantaged rate of seventy percent. However, although our population has a large number of economically disadvantaged students, parents value education for their children and this is reflected in the 2017- 2018 attendance rate of 96 percent. Goals are set and met through a team effort and we are blessed to have a dedicated school family that supports our quest to educate all children.
