The Morristown Governing Board is beginning the approval process of next year’s school calendar. The governing board would like to consider looking at a four-day school week to that of the traditional five-day school week. At this point, it is only a consideration. The school will be outreaching to attain information from all its stakeholders. We are encouraging you to provide feedback which will allow the governing board to make an informed decision. Districts surrounding Morristown utilize, or are considering utilizing, a four-day week.
This past year, Morristown Elementary did not provide the transportation of high school students to Wickenburg High School. Several local families have been carpooling a small group of students to Wickenburg High School. We understand the challenges and burden that this has caused a small group of families.
Our governing board looked at a variety of solutions to help support these students and families. On January 14 the board voted to support the transportation by providing bussing from Morristown Elementary in the morning to Circle City (Duncan Park). In the afternoon, we will bus students from Duncan Park to Morristown Elementary School. This endeavor will assist in making sure students have ample transportation to Wickenburg High School.
Please take a moment to read Superintendent Dr. Gregory T. Sackos' complete letter to parents regarding the transportation of high school students.
Just prior to the winter break, our teachers and students put on their annual winter performances. We have to acknowledge the efforts of all those involved. There is a great amount of work that goes into such productions. In addition, we extend a special thank you to PTSA for the dinner for those in attendance. It was a very successful evening of performances.
We would like to send a special thank you to all of those individuals that attended and participated in the recent Wickenburg Light Parade. This annual event allows various organizations to construct a float for the parade. This year, the Morristown Elementary School floats received a first place award for the youth division. Thanks to Mr. J.C. Campbell for taking the time to provide a trailer and his truck to pull the float.
