Ms. Boyd's News: January 27
Your kindergarten through third grade students have all completed DIBELS testing. Please, talk to them about your student’s score.
Teachers had a small awards day celebration in their classrooms Friday, January 24, 2020 to honor students who made academic growth. I visited all classrooms and presented the principal’s award to one student in each class who was a good citizen, always listened to the teacher and tried very hard to do their best every day last nine weeks.
On the afternoon of January 31, students who had good behavior for the month of January will be able to participate in our Winter games. Students have been remined repeatedly about having good behavior for the month in order to attend the activities. This includes an indoor snowball fight in the multipurpose room, watching Elsa sing and a catapulting cotton ball activity.
We are really needing your support the next few months. Many of our students did not score very well on the STAR and we will be working heavily on State Standards in reading and math.
Continue to encourage our first graders to read. Each Friday a guest speaker reads to the students as part of our Parade of Readers.
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 counselors, all the ladies in the front office or I will be glad to help.
Patty Boyd, principal
