March is Reading Month!

March is here and with it comes a month of reading! The March is Reading Month daily calendar was shared last week and is listed below. Each day we have something fun relating to reading. Lots of students and teachers were wearing crazy socks today as we had Fox on Sox Crazy Sock Day! Watch the calendar for more fun activities throughout the month of March.


In addition to our calendar of activities, Morgan students can earn free baseball tickets for reading 4 books in their grade level or Lexile Level. When finished with a book, there is a sheet of paper for students to complete and have parents sign. Turn in four completed book sheets and earn a ticket to the Morgan Rocket night at Jimmy John's field in late May. Parents will be offered discounted tickets as well.


Next week Morgan, and all Utica Community Schools, will be hosting Kindergarten Open House on Wednesday, March 11. This is an opportunity to learn about Morgan Elementary and what a day in Kindergarten look like for our youngest Rockets. Parents can turn in registration paperwork and meet the kindergarten teachers at Morgan. If you have neighbors/friends/family who live in the Morgan attendance area, please share the Open House night information with them. If you have any questions about registration, please call our Main Office at 586-797-5800.


This week Morgan received new soap dispensers in all of the bathrooms. These soap dispensers require a key to access the bag of soap inside. Students can push the bottom of the dispenser and have soap squirt onto their hands. We announced the new dispensers on Thursday morning and are encouraging students to use the soap and scrub their hands with the soap for the entire length of the "Happy Birthday" song before rinsing. Please encourage your child to use our new soap dispensers and wash their hands after using the bathroom, before eating, and after sneezing or using a tissue. Hand washing is one of best ways to keep the germs away.

Don't forget to set your clocks FORWARD one hour on Sunday morning this weekend as we Spring Forward into Daylight Savings Time! This is a sure sign spring is on the way.



Have a good week!
