At Morse:
During the first week at school we meet outside and line up by class. There are signs to tell you where your class will meet. You will also see familiar faces to help you find your way.

Once you know your teacher, we begin meeting in the auditorium. Normally Mr. Farrell and Mr. Fischer meet us in the auditorium. Mr. Farrell will pick students to go on the stage and practice their jump roping. Sometimes this is even a contest. If you are not picked to go on the stage you will be sitting with your class. You can read a book, quietly talk to the people around you, or watch the people jumping. Mr. Farrell dismisses us by grade and class. The 2nd graders get to go first. They are followed by the third graders.
Once you unpack and get ready to start the day, the Principal will start by saying the Pledge of Allegiance and any morning announcements. If you come in after the announcements you need to get a late pass from the Office.
