Literacy + Math + Summer =
Student Success!

Summer vacation is almost here! Our students have all made such significant gains this school year, and we want them to continue this progress over the vacation. To support student success, the Morse School’s Literacy and Math Leadership Teams have organized some great ways to encourage continued learning. Students who participate in these activities and return them will earn raffle tickets with the chance to win an ice-cream party in the fall. Read on >>

School Year 2014-15 Comes to an End
As this school year comes to an end it is filled with excitement for summer vacation, but it is also filled with some sadness as well. Sadness you ask? Yes! We say good-bye to the 5th graders and their families! We also have a number of families that will not be returning to the Morse as their time in Cambridge has come to an end and they are moving to other districts, states and countries. We will miss you all!

We also have two staff members who will retire from CPSD. We wish Linda O’Connor, Kindergarten Para-Professional, and Kathy Kelleher, School Nurse, all the best as they start the next adventure in life!

We hope all will remember their time at the Morse fondly!

–Denise Sullivan, Family Liaison
