Morristown Elementary School District
A Message from Our Superintendent
Dear Morristown Elementary School Students and Parents,
We hope that you and your family are enjoying your summer to the fullest. We have now moved into July, which means that the upcoming school year is fast approaching.
As we move into this next school year, I want to formally note that we are glad to have you as part of our school family and hope you are looking forward to the upcoming school year. This year, we expect to welcome approximately 110 students (kindergarten through 8th grade) to our classrooms. We are extremely proud of our school and the continued commitment to strong academic standards and improved student achievement.
We will have some changes this school year. Most notable is the recent board adoption of moving to a four-day school week, Monday thru Thursday. We will also have two new teachers and two new paraprofessionals for our academic staff. We will also be filling our open food service vacancy. The school will also have some new safety features, which include security doors and a camera monitoring system. We have modified the front office to more formally greet and support our visitors. The interior walls of the academic wings are being painted. There is a planned family event that will occur on Saturday, July 13, that will have area volunteers work on the clean-up and painting of the school grounds. This event is open to all the Morristown community. Please be aware that our 21st Century After School Program grant came to an end when the school year ended. It is unknown if acceptance of our grant application for another five years will occur or not.
As we begin the new school year, we invite you to check back frequently for the latest information, news, and announcements. We encourage parents who have questions or concerns during the year to contact their child’s teacher or me if needed
The governing board joins me in extending best wishes to you for a productive school year filled with many opportunities. Working together, we will inspire success and a lifetime of learning for all the youth that attend Morristown Elementary School.
Thanks for all your support,
Dr. Gregory T. Sackos
