The End of 2018!

I still have trouble wrapping my head around the fact that we are in the year 2018, heading into 2019.Thinking back to my days in childhood, there is so much that has changed in our world since then. What is consistent is time with people you care about.

This season is a time to spend with family, friends and anyone else you care about. It is busy with shopping, planning, cooking, traveling, but it also creates memories that will remain with us for many years to come. Think back on your favorite memories from years ago and share with your children. Share your family traditions and rituals with your children as they take those traditions with them as they grow and leave our sides. Best of all, stop and be in the moment with your kids.

If you are traveling, may your travels be safe and uneventful. If you are remaining close to home, cherish the time you have with your kids and find special things to do together. Best of all, make some memories together that will carry you out of 2018 and into the next year!

Have a great break and see you in 2019!

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
