    Mrs. Dietz's first and second grade art classes have been hard at work creating a beautiful mural to permanently display at Morse school. Each class read the children's book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds. The story is about a little girl named Vashti who goes to art class and just doesn't know what to draw. Her art teacher suggests, "just make a mark and see where it takes you!"

  • Saving The Monarch Butterfly:

    You could hear the excitement in the Morse auditorium Friday when parent Carol Vinzant released a Monarch butterfly with the help of first and second-graders. Known as everybody’s favorite butterfly, the black, orange and white insect could face endangerment and that is why Vinzant and parent Ginny Williams explained how the community can make a difference. Monarch butterflies only eat a plant called milkweed and Vinzant said pesticides, global warming and severe weather have impacted the plant and the species over time.
