Art Show, PTSA Silent Auction, and Pancake Breakfast

Art Show and Pancake Breakfast photosThe Morristown School community enjoyed the annual Art Show, PTSA Silent Auction, and Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, April 22, 2017. The school displayed fabulous artwork that students created throughout the year. The Morristown PTSA sponsored the silent auction and pancake breakfast to help defray costs for yearbooks, field trips, and scholastic reading materials. Children enjoyed working with the eighth grade students on various art projects. John Gallagher was also on hand to teach children soap carving. The program was a great success with over 150 community visitors taking time out to enjoy a wonderful morning at Morristown Elementary School.

Garden Dedication Ceremony

Mr. Leo Corbet, former Arizona state senator, spoke to the student body during the garden dedication ceremony about his mother’s love of music and dedication to children. Many members of his family attended.

Honoring Lucille Corbet

Morristown students and staff gathered with members of the Corbet family to dedicate land donated by Mr. and Mrs. Leo Corbet to the Morristown School District as the Lucille Corbet Botanical Garden for Children on April 13, 2017. Mr. Corbet said he was very happy to honor the memory of his mother, Mrs. Lucille Corbet, with the donation of the garden site. 

Mrs. Corbet was a valued substitute teacher on the Morristown School campus across two decades, 1980s and 1990s, until her health slowed her down. The Yuma County Teachers Hall of Fame honored her by inducting her into the hall of fame in 1995. She taught in several schools throughout Arizona in her long career. She played piano and organ and shared the gift of music with her students, family and community.

Mrs. Corbet passed away in 1998, but her family donated this piece of property to the Morristown School District to be dedicated to her memory as a woman who loved children, music, her family and Arizona.
