Remembering Marie Merrell Morgan 11/15/1956-11/08/2015

For 20 years Morningside School was blessed to have Teacher Marie Merrell Morgan with us. Many children and staff came and went in those 20 years, and they are all better having been influenced by Marie. She was the ultimate example of fun, joy, music, service, and most of all love. Her students knew that she cared about them and they adored her for it. We are so grateful for the love she had for the children and staff of Morningside and for the spark of energy she had with them for all of those years.

She has been courageously battling cancer since 2012. Although our hearts are so heavy that she has passed, we are at peace that she is no longer in pain. Our hearts ache for her family and all those who love her. Marie, your memory and songs will live on as long as there are children to sing at Morningside.Thank you for all that you taught us and shared with us! We miss you and WE LOVE YOU!

To apply for the Teacher Marie Merrell …

Today we had very special visitors at Morningside School — Vivian Taylor and Becky Erickson from the Cache Valley Civic Ballet!  Becky is the principal female lead playing Gretel, in an upcoming performance of Hansel and Gretel!  She read us the story in full costume and then demonstrated several techniques that help illustrate the story through dance.  The children were charmed.

Preschool Valentine’s Parties will be held on Thursday and Friday.   Please have your child bring 20 Valentines, 16 for classmates and 4 for teachers/usu practicum students.  Don’t worry about addressing them to specific children in the class.  If your child attends more than one session, they will only pass out their Valentine’s on the first session they attend.

Kindergarten Valentine’s Party will be held on Friday. Please have your child bring a valentine for each child in the class.  Each valentine should be signed by your child and should have the name of the child it is for somewhere on the valentine.
