Dear Morse School Parents & Caregivers,

Pride DayThis morning, we kicked off LGBTQ+ Pride Month by raising the Pride Flag above the Morse School! We want to acknowledge lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning members of our community, to honor the contributions that LGBTQ+ individuals and groups have made to promoting social justice and equal opportunities, and to reaffirm our commitment to making the Morse School a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

Happening Today - Thursday, June 1st
Two special events will be taking place this afternoon:

  • Our Health educator Danielle Card-Howe invites 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders to a Period Preparation Party in our Memorial Drive courtyard (in the tented area) beginning at 5:30PM. Please enter through the Main Entrance. Students will enjoy pizza, cupcakes, music, games and guest speakers, and will also create their first period pack! Please click here for more information.

  • We are excited and proud to announce that four Morse School students will be honored at this evening’s 24th Annual CPL Poetry Awards ceremony, which will be held beginning at 6PM in the Lecture Hall at the Main Library (449 Broadway St.):

June 2023 Calendar
We are ending the 2023-2024 school year with many exciting activities and events aimed at celebrating student accomplishments and strengthening our sense of community. A hard copy of the Morse June 2023 Calendar was sent home in your child’s backpack yesterday. You can find an electronic (PDF) version by clicking here. Please note that since the school year ends on June 22nd, the calendar does not include the last week of June.

2023-2024 Classroom Placement Process
Last Friday, you received a flier in your child’s backpack with information about the process that we will follow to create class lists for the coming school year. As part of the process, we invite you to share any information that you believe would help us in placing your child in a classroom community that will best support their growth, success, and sense of belonging. Please feel free to share by completing this parent/caregiver input form. For more information and a QR Code please click here.
