First Snow of the Season!

The first week of November was busy with teacher professional development, finalization of our first quarter report cards, and the first snow of the season!


Students were reminded during morning announcements that wood chips, leaves, sticks, rocks, and snow should remain on the ground or where they found it when on the playground. Throwing leaves and snow in the air is part of childhood fun; however, when in large groups, such as school playground time, the leaves and snow always seem to find another students' eyes, face, or body, even if there was no intention to have the thrown item hit another student. 


Morgan is celebrating a Wellness Weekend over the Thanksgiving Break. The flyer for our Wellness Weekend is located further below in this newsletter. There will be no projects, assignments, test preparation, during the long weekend break. Morgan would like staff, students, and families to unplug and enjoy the weekend with family and friends.


The annual Morgan Penny Wars start next week and run throughout the week. Bring in the loose change from home and the family vehicle to participate in the friendly competition between U of M and MSU. There is more information in the flyer below.


If you are struggling with Power School Parent Portal, don't forget to come to Morgan on Wednesday, November 13, between the hours of 5-7 PM. One of our UCS technology experts will be in the Media Center Computer Lab to help parents with their Power School account. Power School is used for grade in the upper elementary grades, attendance for all grades.


As the season starts to fill up with activities, family gatherings, special visits, short trips, continued sports games, and the shopping season, please put aside some time for students to continue to read at home. This is a perfect time to slow down and enjoy a good book together read aloud. Take a look at the reading chart below to see the benefits of reading at home each night.



Have a great week!
