A Message from Our Superintendent

Morristown Students, Families, and Community Members,

It is hard to believe that we have come to the end of the 2018–2019 school year. This has been an amazing year and the celebrations from the last couple weeks depict this to the fullest! This week, we had a marvelous kindergarten graduation as well as an eighth grade promotion. We concluded this final week with our end of year awards ceremony.

Congratulations to our thirteen eighth grade students who will be moving on to high school next year. I am confident that we prepared them for this endeavor. Congratulations to Mrs. Messner and Ms. Hollister for their dedicated time in the classroom during their years of service as teachers here at Morristown Elementary. We wish them the best in their endeavors!

This is the time of year that we will be receiving our AzMERIT testing results from the state. We anxiously look for the results to determine areas of strength and those areas needing support. Our job is to utilize this information to determine learning gaps and to provide supports to overcome these gaps.

I am continually impressed by the local support of our community groups and organizations. This includes Kiwanis of Sun City, Wickenburg Elks Lodge, General Federated Women’s Club, Morristown Christian Fellowship, and of course our PTSA. I am grateful for all that they do on behalf of our students!

Next year, we will have some changes in place. The most obvious will be our transition to a four-day school week. We believe this to be a good decision, but cannot have the academic performance of our students be impacted. More to come on this.

Below is a link to our superintendent survey. This will allow you to provide feedback on the performance of the superintendent. The survey will also allow you to comment on aspects surrounding the school. Feedback is valuable and essential as we work towards ongoing school improvement. The survey is short and confidential. The governing board will review and utilize the results.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the superintendent survey. This will support me in my ongoing development as a school superintendent. It is truly an honor to be a part of the Morristown Elementary family. As we finish up school, I wish all of you a safe and happy summer. Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones!

Thanks for all your support,
