Morenci MS/HS Memo

Week of August 22, 2022

Welcome Back!

It is that time of year again! Warm days, cool mornings, and that 'return to school feeling'. Mr. Wilson and his team have done an amazing job getting the buiding(s) and ground(s) detailed beautifully. Mrs. Lemmon, Mrs. Schell, Mr. Lemmon and Mr. Hall have everything organized for a smooth return to school. Ms. Walker has the fall teams up and running for both high school and middle school. What a wonderful community Back To School Kickoff last week. Thank you to everyone who organized a wonderful evening for our families. The community spirit, dedication, and hard work is what makes Morenci great .


My name is Mr. O'Leary and I am the new MS/HS principal. My family and I live in Brooklyn, MI. I spent over 25 years as a teacher/coach and building administration. The majority of my teaching career was in Saline, while the majority of my administrative career was in Garden City. I grew up in Bobcat Country, (Whiteford), and love being back in a small town. We, the teachers, administration, staff, students, and our entire community will work together to have an engaged, energized, and successful school year!

New Staff Members

  • Mrs. Hannah Wilson will be at MHS on Tuesdays and Thursdays co-teaching Geometry, Adulting, and Biology. She is a 2013 Bulldog Alum!

Dog Dinners!

This year I will be hosting a dinner each month. The Dog Dinners will be a time for a nice (free), meal, honor our success, brainstorm our challenges, and progress toward continuous improvement for our students and community. All are welcome. The first dinner will be September 29th from 6:00 - 7:00 pm @ ????. RSVP will be sent at a later date.
