Word of the Week: Respect -
Showing regard or appreciation for the worth of someone or something
“Respect is a two-way street, if you want to get it, you've got to give it.”
§ Playground Plans - We are in the process of developing plans to improve and upgrade the W.F. Morrison Elementary playground. As our plans become more formalized, we will be inviting parents, students and community members to meetings to help with planning and organization of fund raising efforts. We anticipate that this will be a three year process. As a first phase of the project, we plan to repair existing equipment. Look for meeting dates in future newsletters.
