October 2nd & 3rd, Life Touch will be at Morningside School to take individual and class portraits. Every child will be photographed but you are under no obligation to purchase them. I should let you know that when you do purchase them, Morningside is given a small percentage allowing us to use it as a little bit of a fundraiser. The picture packets will arrive in 2-3 weeks after the shoot. You just select which pages of proofs you want, remove them from the packet and send the rest back to school. Prices will be listed in the packet. Payment is made by check with the returned proofs or online by following instructions on the packet. Questions? Contact Jacqui!
Dear Friends of Morningside School,
Hello Friends of Morningside School!
Though summer is only half over, our staff is busy preparing for another amazing year with a whole new group of children! Our classes are filling up quickly now, and I want to be sure we have an accurate enrollment. If your plans have changed, please let me know so that another child can have the open slot.
Our Orientation Open House is scheduled for August 20th, 4-6 PM. This year we are asking that families with last names that begin with A-E arrive at 4:00, F-J arrive at 4:20, K-O arrive at 4:40, P-T arrive at 5:00 and U-Z arrive at 5:20.
This event is a great time to meet your child’s teachers and other families involved with our school. We will have refreshments (ICE CREAM) and some super fun activities for the children to enjoy while you visit information stations to be sure we have communicated all the important details for a successful start to the year.
We are looking forward to a fabulous new school year and the opportunity to build a safe, happy learning environment for your child’s first school experience. Our first days of school are Monday, August 25th and Tuesday, August 26th.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me anytime.
In honor of two special retired Morningside Teachers, Teacher Marie Morgan and Teacher/Director Mary Jarvis, Morningside School has announced 50% tuition scholarships in their names, “The Teacher Marie Kindergarten Scholarship” and “The Mary Jarvis Preschool Scholarship.” These scholarships will be available annually for children who would thrive at Morningside but would not be able to attend due to economic hardship. They can be applied for by speaking with the Director, Jacqui Gauthier.

Last month we were able to collect enough donations to purchase a gorgeous pair of new glasses for Teacher Marie! She sent a Thank You note to Morningside that we wanted to share with you.
Her note reads:
To my wonderful friends at Morningside School –
Thank you for my fantastic new glasses! I love them and I can see so much better now! I am sending you a picture so you can see how they look. I hope you like it. I miss my friends! I hope all of you are having a happy springtime! Isn’t it lovely to have so much sun-shine? I love it. I think of you whenever I go outside.
I love all of you and I miss you.
Love, Teacher Marie
Teacher Marie, We love you too.
Girls leading in the joy of science exploration. Thank you Teacher Gigi and the whole Kindergarten class for giving us this moment today. Priceless.
It’s Fine Arts emphasis week! Monday, Tessa Evans from the Valley Dance Ensemble – Cache Valley Center for the Arts came to school to lead us in a “dance” of the children’s book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds. What fun!!! Ms. Evans used the text of the story to invent creative movements; kinesthetically bringing heightened understanding to the words as the children participated in the process of moving their whole bodies with meaning. Tessa enticed reluctant participants like a master, and every child tried something new that day! If your child came home bubbling about their experience, you may want to sign up for Ms. Evans classes at CVCA! We are so grateful for her time, energy and talent! Thank you Ms. Evans!!!
