The principal of this school is a BULLY! Report incidents involving Panko to her boss immediately. Also send a copy to his boss, or nothing will be done about it. Her pet math teacher follows her direction. So if she singles out you or your child to pick on and they are in his class, he will follow her directions for harassment in the class.

We feel so fortunate to have our children attend South Morrison Elementary School. Not only are they receiving a top rate education, they are guided by teachers and staff members that truly love our children and our school. As our children enter the building each day, they are greeted with a smile, a warm hug and a 'Good Morning, how are you today?'. This might not seem like much, but it shows our students that they are respected, they are thought of and it definitely starts their day off on a good note. From here they head to classrooms where the teachers go above and beyond the traditional standards of learning, they make learning fun. Our teachers use their own resources to bring extra materials and learning aids into the classroom; so that those children that might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the 'extras' in life, do not miss out on what is available to most of us. Our teachers give freely of their time so that the children of our school can take part in Enrichment Clubs, such as Ballroom Dancing, Art Enrichment, Music Enrichment, Orchestra, Computer Club, Speed Stacking and the Jump Rope Team. We also have two after school clubs, The Girls of Excellence and The Men of Distinction. The students in these two civic groups are selected based on their grades and good citizenship. Year after year, our students make AYP and exceed on their SOL testing. We take great pride on our students abilities to strive to be their best ~ to be great learners, to be great thinkers and to become the best people they can possible be.

South Morrison Elementary is a great school for children. It feels more like a family that works together to take care of all the children that come here. South Morrison's staff care about nurturing the whole child, as well as, providing them with a sound education. We believe that it is extremely important to prepare our students for their future. We would like to do even more this year with technology if the funds were available.

As a teacher from another school, I continue to be impressed with the students and staff at South Morrison. Whether it is at a conference or other district wide activities, the leadership glows throughout the staff. The ESD team does an outstanding job and I look forward to other schools working hard to reach the goals South Morrison has set for others to follow.

South Morrison is a wonderful school of learning. The have been accredited and have made AYP for the last 5 years. They have implemented Effective School wide Discipline. There are few referrals to the office and students are on task. The staff believes in a 'nurtured heart approach' to teaching academics and character. I would highly recommend anyone to come and visit the school and see all of the wonderful learning that is taking place!

This school leaves much to desired. My son is constantly coming home telling us of all the distractions that go on his classroom, from all of his teacher's cell phone calls to the children that throw chairs when they are upset. This school at times seems out of control. From the children who are wondering the hall at all times of the day to the front office, that always seem to be gossipping. Next time we purchase a home I will make sure the schools are great. I will sacrifice square footage for my son's education.

I love South Morrison from the custodial staff to the principal. It is not a school it is a family. Everyone cares, and no one is a stranger. I only wish my elementry school was like this.
