St. Baldrick's Day
This year especially, Morrice Area Schools has been hit hard by cancer. We want to show our solidarity with all of those fighting cancer by having a blowout year in our annual St. Baldrick's Day event on May 9. Since 2007, our community has raised over $16,000 for this excellent foundation to fight childhood cancer. With a little extra effort this year, we can break the $20K mark. Please consider donating to our event and doing your part to help cure childhood cancer by clicking on the picture above.

We have had great success this year with our Saturday Schools. Please feel free to join us on the dates listed below If you are falling behind in your class, failing a class, or need a place to get some work done. We have had numerous students taking advantage of this time and we have developed some procedures to ensure that every student has a chance to utilize our Saturday School sessions. Please see the Saturday School Procedures and Policies for more information.
This year we will offer Saturday School every other weekend from 8 to 12. Please let Mrs. Ryan or Mrs. Branch know if you plan to attend Saturday School.
The results have been returned from our yearly Perception Survey that we administer to parents. Thank you to those who participated this year in helping us to create a better educational experience for all of our students.
