Morristown Elementary School District
A Message from Our Superintendent
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Tuesday, August 6 is our first day of school! I am excited about this upcoming school year. Morristown School has a strong tradition of having a dedicated and passionate faculty, supportive parents, and creative, energetic students. This year we will have some new faces to our team, and we are going to do great things together. I hope you have had a fantastic summer and are enjoying the last few days. I trust that you also are getting excited about the school year. Here is a list of some important information for the start of the year:
Parent involvement in the educational setting is vital. With that in mind, we invite you to be an active participant at Morristown School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTSA, special event participation, or supporting your child’s at home learning, we encourage you to be involved. Research on schools clearly demonstrates parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.
I am encouraging you to join the Morristown Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). This group provides vital support to our students in the form of recognition for attendance, arts, science, and promotions. PTSA supports a great number of events of the school. This includes the Date Creek Apple Festival, the winter program, the art show, and our field trips to name just a few. This is a hard-working group of parents, staff, and students. We hope you can become involved too.
The school has taken steps to improve the campus overall. There are new safety measures and classrooms, and we painted the hallways. Monday, August 5 is our back-to-school night. This event will allow you to meet your child’s teacher in advance, to see the many changes of the school, and to meet our awesome faculty. PTSA will be onsite, and we hope you can take a commitment to join their efforts. The back-to-school event begins at 4:30 p.m. promptly. School begins Tuesday, August 6 at 8:00 a.m.
Thanks for all you do,
Dr. Gregory T. Sackos
