Attention La Chispa members: A group photo for the yearbook is planned for tomorrow at 10:15. Tomorrow you should come to the main foyer immediately after your second period class ends. If you aren't on time, you won't be in the yearbook.
Get this: Thousands of people in the U.S. are struggling to make ends meet. Now take a peek at the average public middle school; students simply just throw out their excess food waste. Morgan Middle School may be doing great in the respect of feeding worms, but what about people? You may have noticed a box in your homeroom class. This is for non-perishable food items to be given to those families in need. Give those Campbell’s cans of ravioli to the food drive today! ~Kai Dwyer, Leadership.
Track starts on Monday the 17th. 7th graders, meet in the gym ready to go to the high school at 3:10 on Monday. 8th graders, meet Mrs. Carolan out by the track in the bleachers by 3:10 on Monday. Get your clearance slips from the office as soon as possible. Don’t delay!
7th grade Baseball players will meet in the locker room this Thursday the 13th for an informational meeting. Bring your clearance slips! 8th grade Baseball, Meet Mr. Taylor this Thursday the 13th in the main gym right after school. You will then walk to Morgan Middle School for the informational baseball meeting. Make sure your ride picks you up at Morgan at 4:30.
It is the time of year that we test for admission to Quest/Honors Freshman classes next fall. If you are not currently in Quest, but believe that you would benefit from a more challenging, in-depth class once a day, pick up a yellow nomination form from the Morgan office. Next year is the first year that ninth graders will be placed in highly capable classes, so for the first time ever, 8th graders are also eligible to test. The deadline to turn in your Quest nomination is April 4th. You may turn it in to Mrs. Carpenter or send it straight to the address on the form. If you are already in Quest, you do not need to re-test.
