Week Two!

We end this week on Friday the 13th and a full harvest moon. Our Morgan students participated in our first school-wide assembly of the new year to review our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) initiatives that revolve around our 8 Keys of Excellence. They viewed our PBIS video created last year with our student council that outline our behavior expectations for 6 areas of the school: hallway, bathroom, lunchroom, bus, assembly, playground. Our sixth and fifth grade students buddy up with kindergarten and first graders to attend our assemblies while our second, third, and fourth graders walk down on their own with staff supervision in the hallways.


Students also started their fall NWEA testing this week. Each classroom has a different testing schedule, so check with your child's teacher as to date/times for NWEA testing. Our fall testing will complete in mid-October. Your teacher will be able to share fall NWEA testing results during fall conferences. NWEA measure our students' understanding of reading and mathematics in all grades, along with science in grades 3-6.


Next Tuesday is our annual UCS Open House and Morgan Curriculum Night. We will start our evening in the gymnasium at 7 PM, with two classroom presentation sessions to follow. Each classroom presentation will last 20 minutes. Our Book Fair will also be open during Open House/Curriculum Night for parents to make purchases.


Have a great weekend with your kids! There is so much to do this time of year while the weather stays nice. Enjoy the apple orchards, the parks, trails and time spent together.



Have a great week!
