Carnival

So much FUN was had at the Annual Math Literacy & Math Carnival
Games, balloons, prizes, and smiling faces stretched as far as the eye could see, and the yummy smell of popcorn filled the air as the annual Morse School Math and Literacy Carnival rolled into town on Thursday, March 22nd! This year, over 188 children “stepped right up” and enjoyed an evening filled with exciting math and literacy fun for the whole family. The night kicked off with check-in in the main lobby at 6PM, where, by the end of the evening, close to 130 families had received their raffle tickets, game checklist, and carnival map. Read on >>

Technology

5th Grade Media Literacy
5th Graders at the Morse are learning to be media literate. Media literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create media in a variety forms. Students are working in teams to make their own commercials and Public Service Announcements to practice the media production process. Stay tuned for news about the annual 5th Grade Red Carpet event that will take place this Spring to celebrate their work!

Instruments

Grade 5 Instrumental Students Share with Mrs. Connelly’s JK Class
Room B8 was so excited to have three 5th grade visitors come to our classroom--including two former B8 students!

These talented students taught the JK kids all about the instruments they are learning in Instrumental class, and played a few songs for us! We were so glad that these 5th graders had a chance to show off their skills--and get the Junior Kindergarteners excited about some of the instruments they will get the chance to try when they get a little older!

Markers

Morse Marker Recycling Update
By: Sophie Bishop, Learning Disabilities Specialist
Morse School has recycled over ONE THOUSAND markers since September! Students in grade 3 who work with Miss Sophie have been using the ColorCycle Marker Recycling program to improve their math skills. They have practiced skip counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division when counting the overall number of markers.

Note from School Nurse Aries
Dear Families,

Last year, the Cambridge School Committee voted to provide sanitary hygiene products for free in COS female and gender inclusive bathrooms. A group of high school students advocated for the change, arguing that free access was a human rights issue. Instead of having to go to the nurse’s office, they argued, it would be reassuring to know they would be available in all female and gender inclusive bathrooms at no cost. Read more >>
