Welcome to Morris

Welcome to James B. Morris Elementary School! We are a community of lifelong learners dedicated to serving our constituency in efforts to move children forward from the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral arenas. The Morris Staff is committed to offering each student an individual educational experience; thus facilitating their successful preparation for citizenship in the 21st century.

As previously stated, the Morris staff approaches the educational process from an individualistic perspective. Based on formative data collected, highly targeted interventions are offered to all students necessitating additional help beyond the core instruction. Utilizing a strong intervention model, identified students are provided with tiered interventions, in the form of additional or substantial small groups, to help accelerate them toward proficiency in the essential learning concepts and skills. Furthermore, students demonstrating a high level of proficiency have extension and enrichment activity opportunities to address their individual learning needs.

Please join us, as a community of learners, in supporting our youths’ educational experiences. You can help by encouraging your children to do well in school each and every day, and through adult participation in school activities, functions, volunteering within the school day, helping with homework, and letting others know the great things going on at James B. Morris Elementary School.
