Lost & Found
Has your child lost a coat, jacket, sweatshirt, etc? Please check the Lost & found located in the Cafeteria on the back wall. Sometimes it takes a few days to end up there so keep checking.


Did you know?
Did you know that next to the B-Wing doors (door #9) on Granite Street you can find the Morse School Community Bookshelf? You can bring any of these books home with you to read outside of school. We are also seeking book donations to keep shelves full of books. If you have books at home you are finished with, please add them to the shelves for other families to enjoy. Take a book, give a book, share a book, and READ a book!

Over the past several years we have seen a growth in the involvement of parents and guardians but we are genuinely interested in making improvements.

Hour of Code


The 3rd annual Hour of Code is coming to the Morse School!  During the week of December 7 - 12, students and teachers will celebrate Computer Science Education Week by participating in the Hour of Code, a nation-wide effort to bring more computer science into classrooms. Students at all levels will engage in lessons designed to teach the foundations of computational thinking and encourage them to become creators rather than consumers of media.  The tutorials and activities students will begin during these lessons are available for free online and are great opportunities for students to explore the field of computer science.
