A BIG THANK YOU to the Morgan PTO for a fun, Fall Festival last Friday evening! It was a beautiful evening for families to come together and enjoy some games, pumpkin painting, food, face painting, and much more! Thank you to the volunteers who worked so hard to make this a special, memorable event for all!


1/2 Day of School Reminder: October 28 and October 31 will be 1/2 days of school with a dismissal time of 11:44am each day.


Morgan Fun Fridays in October:


October 28--Wear your MSU/U of M gear to get ready for the annual match up!


PTO Events:

PTO is hosting a Fall Festival on October 21, from 5 - 8 pm at Morgan (flyer below). This includes a family Scarecrow competition (see below). Fun way to spend some family time with other Morgan families!


Penny Wars are here!: See the flyer below for more information on how the Penny Wars work. Each night, the coins will be counted so we can track the class with the most, the team with the most, and see what colors Mrs. Lasky will be wearing on Friday!


PTO Meeting: SHOUT OUT to the parents from Mrs. Piccirillo's class and Mrs. Fromm's class who came to the PTO meeting! Those two classes had the most parent representation at the meeting last Tuesday and helped make the Fall Festival a big success!!


Don't miss the next meeting on Tuesday, November 15!


Conferences; Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday, November 9 and Thursday, November 10. There will be both in person and virtual options for conferences. A schedule and sign up will be sent out by the end of this week for parents to reserve a conference spot.


You will need a School Soft parent account to sign up. Directions for creating that account will also be included. Once you have created a School Soft account, save your information for log in to use for future conference scheduling.


It is U of M/MSU rivalry week! The Penny Wars are in full swing with our final October Sprit Friday of showing your support for your favorite of the two teams by wearing either blue/yellow or green/white.


Have a good week,

 Mrs. Lasky
