Lion's Pride Spotlight

     Meet Ms. Pyle, our fabulous Third Grade teacher! This is her fourth year working at MCS and her second year teaching. A big reason why Ms. Pyle has always wanted to work with kids because she loves helping people learn and understand and be the best that they can be. A major positive to working with kids is that she gets to be her fun, goofy self while at work! And we love her for it!
     When Ms. Pyle attended school, she really enjoyed writing poems and research papers. In her free time she enjoys playing and snuggling with her dog, Rolly, who is an English Bulldog. Rolly loves making surprise visits and playing with the 3rd graders. Ms. Pyle also has three Molly fish that were gifted to her from a student last year and a Betta fish named River that lives with her at home. Ms. Pyle’s favorite type of food is Mexican food and her favorite book is Heat by Mike Lupica. She has read it 10 times! 
     Thank you Ms. Pyle for all of your hard work and dedication to our students! And an extra big thank you for bringing Rolly to school to meet our students.

Parent Testimonials

What positive experiences did your child have in Kindergarten at MCS?

We loved our experience with MCS during our son’s kindergarten year. He blew our minds with how much he grew socially, emotionally, and how well he learned and thrived. Mrs. Rainer is absolutely the best. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher for my son. Her dedication is inspiring. My son found the extra elective classes to be so much fun, his favorite being theater! I was also impressed with how all the staff interacted with the kids and how all the kids seem to love all the staff.

What positive experiences did your child have in Kindergarten at MCS?

“We have had our two kids in kindergarten at Moscow Charter School . It was the best choice for our family and kiddos. Mrs. Rainer always has the child’s best interest in mind when working with the kindergartners. She is loving, compassionate, energetic, and she individualizes her approach to each student in her class. She is wonderful at communicating what the kiddos are learning so you can follow up with your child. She is responsive to questions and always appreciates working WITH The parents/guardians to provide the best learning environment for the child. I can’t believe we were this lucky to get such an amazing kindergarten teacher that instilled a love of learning for each of our kiddos. The other thing we love is the administration and all the staff that makes MCS feel like a welcoming and caring environment."

What positive experiences did your child have in Kindergarten at MCS?

"We highly recommend Moscow Charter for kindergarten! Our son started with significant speech delay and high anxiety (to be away from home and Mom). MCS has a caring and patient staff and Mrs Rainer is THE best kindergarten teacher in town!!! She is happy, humble, FUN!, reassuring (to child and parents) - she really understands how to bring out the best in all children! The leaps and bounds our son made are nothing short of magical!!"

What positive experiences did your child have in Kindergarten at MCS?

"Having a boy who loves to play hard all day long, kindergarten was worrisome for me. But Mrs. Rainer is literally the best kindergarten teacher I could ever ask for. Bear gained this love for school because of the amazing job she does at keeping it fun and engaging. And the community at MCS is so close knit. All the kids are super close, the teachers and staff are down to earth, and the principal is so approachable. If there's an opening, I'd say go for it!"
