Message from Samantha Headley: November 17, 2023

Dear Morse School Students and Families,

It has been a very busy week for staff, students, and families!  If you haven't met with your child's teacher for conferences, please reach out as soon as possible to schedule. This is an important time to collaborate and discuss successes and areas for continued growth.

Family Math Pop-Up Event
We are looking for 5th grade students to be Student Leaders at an upcoming Family Math Pop-Up event on Thursday, December 14th from 5:30-7:30PM at Cambridge Street Upper School (850 Cambridge Street). As a student leader, your child will teach and share games and activities they’ve learned from our weekly Lunchtime Math with JK-5 Cambridge students and their families. This is a community event for the whole family, a time to connect, learn, and have fun. Come and join the festivities, indulge in some delicious food, and participate in a raffle. Students will facilitate games in 30-minute sessions so you can come for all or part of the event. If you are interested in having your child serve as a Student Leader, please reach out to Ms. Vincent ([email protected]), our Morse Math Coach.

Meet Greta MacVicar
Greta MacVicar (she/they) joins us at the Morse School through early February as an Instructional Technology Specialist to cover Jen Lavalle's role. Greta most recently led a middle school makerspace and assisted teachers with academic technology integration at BB&N here in Cambridge and comes with a background in computer science, AI, and machine learning online teaching as well as math classroom teaching. 

Helping our Kids Navigate Digital Media
A huge thank you to Ms. Lavalle and Greta! Ms. Lavalle put together this wonderful presentation days before giving birth to a healthy baby boy and Greta presented this to our families yesterday morning on just her fourth day at the Morse! There are wonderful tips and resources within this presentation that can support you in helping your child.
