Ms. Boyd's News


Dear Parents,                                                                                               Sept. 23, 2019

We have scheduled a kindergarten meeting for all parents on Wednesday, September 25 at 8:30. We desperately need your help to help students learn the alphabet and the sounds the letters make as well as some high frequency words. We want your child to learn to read this year and it will take a team effort.

Last week, Impact Aid forms were sent home to all HCS students. The return of these forms equals dollars for classrooms. It is the superintendent’s intent to ensure the money received from Impact Aid goes DIRECTLY to the schools to support the classroom. It is critical that every student return his/her form. The district will determine if the form qualifies for Impact Aid.  The last day to turn in Impact Aid forms is September 27th.  

Please, schedule a parent conference with your child’s teacher to discuss DIBELS, STAR data, and progress reports. We want to work with you to help your child succeed.

Please, put on your calendar Oct. 4. We will be having a fall carnival from 3:30-5:30. This event will kick off our Fall Break. We are asking for parents to volunteer an hour of your time to either help set up or work the carnival. A flyer will be coming home soon. We are also asking for donations. The flyer will have all the information on it. Students can come to the carnival in Halloween costumes. Students cannot wear their costume to school. There will be food trucks, jumping inflatables, games etc. Fun for all. For more information contact Jackie Roberts at 256-604-6647 and follow the Morris PTA on Facebook.

Thank you again for supporting Morris Elementary. If you have any concerns, please contact the office and either Mr. Shingleton, our assistant principal, Ms. Parvin, our counselor, all the ladies in the front office or I will be glad to help.


Patty Boyd, principal
