Rocket Review

Week of May 3, 2019

Welcome to May

If April showers bring May flowers, then I would expect a spectacular floral display coming from nature in the next few weeks!

Despite all of the wet weather, our students were able to get outside for recess for many of their days this week. We have just been asking students to avoid the lower, wet soccer field when they are outside playing. A big thank you to our lunch monitors who have been helping each day during lunch to keep our students safe.

As we move into May, our students start to envision their summer vacation and all the fun activities that come with the warmer weather and the end of the school year. We have 6 more weeks of learning to accomplish as students' after school schedules are filling up with sports, practice and other spring activities. Please help your child to stay focused on school as we make the most of the last 6 weeks of school. There is still so much to teach and learn and we want our Morgan students to finish their school year strong and ready to transition to the next year.

Our 3rd, 4th and 6th Grade students will begin to take the M-STEP assessment next week. Please check the calendar below for a reminder of the dates that were sent home with students' M-STEP parent letter two weeks ago.

Have a great week!

Morgan Lunch Monitors

Morgan continues to look for additional support during the lunch hour. While our building is allocated a certain amount of paid EduStaff lunch monitors, we can take additional support in the form of volunteers. Students really enjoying seeing their parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle at school during the lunch time helping in the lunchroom or walking around the playground with the kids.

If you are interested in becoming a paid lunch monitor, please click on link below to start an application with EduStaff. EduStaff certified lunch monitors are paid an hourly rate each day they work. EduStaff employees can also complete additional, free, online training sessions and become substitute paraprofessionals for additional paid hours of work.

Morgan also takes volunteers with a current background check on file. If you filled out a Volunteer Sheet within the past few years, you should be able to volunteer for field trips, classroom help and lunch supervision. If you are unsure about your volunteer status, please contact the Main Office and Sharon or Melissa can check for you: 586-797-5800.

If you are interested in volunteering during the lunch hour, which runs from 11:30 AM until 12:15 PM each day, please contact Melissa in the main office and let her know what days you are available to volunteer. Grandparents/aunts/uncles/neighbors are all welcome once we have a background check on file.

If you have any questions, please call Morgan at 586-797-5800 or email Mrs. Lasky at
