Message from Family Liaison

Hello Morse Community I hope you had a restful break last week as the week comes to a close, I wanted to leave you with this quote.

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”

—Booker T. Washington

Winter Clothing Exchange

The annual Winter Clothing Exchange is back! As with all events these days, it will be a little different than in previous years. Instead of leaving bins out in the school lobby for folks to leave what they can and take what they need, we will be doing the following:

Donate what you can
November 29, 2021 - January 7, 2022
Leave kids winter clothing in the bins at the Morse School front entrance.

Take what you need
Two separate dates: December 18 and January 8
All the collected items will be out in the Morse School gym, available for retrieval.
Volunteer needs for the exchange will be posted shortly.

All Morse School community members are invited to participate! Donations are NOT required in order to take items that your family needs.

Full and up-to-date details are on the event page on the blog. More details >>
