Morristown Elementary School has recently developed and integrated a mass notification system. This one-call system, which has the capabilities of making phone calls, sending text messages, and sending emails, will quickly and efficiently get out communication to all parents and stakeholders. This communication will provide information on upcoming events, reminders of school activities, and to ultimately provide quick communication if a school emergency is occurring. We will do our best to ensure the information out is absolutely relevant. Please take time to read and understand the information you receive. If, for some reason, you receive a phone call from the school, please take a moment to listen to the voice message prior to giving the school a call back. We believe we have taken great steps to get accurate and timely messages to our parents, stakeholders, and our community.
Congratulations go out to both our boys and girls volleyball teams. Both did an incredible job at the Central Mountain league tournament. The boys team took first place, with a convincing performance over Congress Elementary School. The girls team didn’t make it to the finals, but took the top-seeded Festival team to a thrilling ending. Congratulations to Coach Perry and Coach Wimberly. The team represented the school to the fullest.
Recently, Lowanna Perry, a first-grade teacher at Morristown Elementary, was a recipient of a Fiesta Bowl grant. Ms. Perry submitted a well-developed proposal that met the needs of the lower grades with respect to the vision of developing the school garden(s). Ms. Perry has routinely developed and maintained a school garden. The outdoor garden makes a great learning center where students have an opportunity for thought, collaboration, teamwork, and hands-on work that ultimately provides reward with vegetables and foods for harvest. The school wants to acknowledge the Fiesta Bowl committee for this very generous opportunity and the commitment of Ms. Perry as well.
