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.
