Lunch Monitors: Morgan continues to search for EduStaff lunch monitors. You can complete the application below. EduStaff is also the location to become a substitute teacher for Morgan and a substitute paraprofessional for Morgan. We would love to have you join our team!


PTO Meeting--TONIGHT!! Starting at 6:30 pm @ The Detroit Grille House on 25 Mile Rd. and Shelby Rd. (northwest corner). If you are a parent or staff member at Morgan you are automatically a member of the PTO. Come join the fun and see what our PTO is doing for our Morgan kids!


Picture Day Will be Wednesday, September 28. You should have received a picture order form from your child's backpack late last week, or today!


You can also order picture packages online at: then use the School Code: 22MORGAN23


Volunteer Background Checks: The official word from the UCS Human Resource department is that parents will need to complete a YEARLY background check. Forms will be sent home with your child or you can print from the attachment below. If you were approved with a new application in the past year, that will carry forward until a new background check can be completed.


Background checks are needed for:

field trips

volunteering at school in classrooms

volunteering for field day, color run, etc.

helping in the lunchroom (unpaid)


UCS takes about 2 weeks to process background checks.


This is also the last week of summer, with fall officially arriving on September 22, along with cooler weather. Don't forget to have your child check the Lost & Found bin in the main lobby if they have misplaced a hoodie, sweater, water bottle, or lunch box.


Have a good week,

 Mrs. Lasky
