Julia B. Morrison School would like to welcome our community of learners back for the 2016-2017 school year. We are very excited about the possibilities and opportunities we will encounter this year as we implement the new Common Core State Standards. The Morrison community of learners, which includes our students, teachers, staff, parents, PTA, ELAC, School Site Council, along with the support of local businesses and our district offices, have worked very hard to continue to build on a strong foundation of success.
As we begin this school year, we are proud to be a California Distinguished School, a Title 1 Academic Achievement Award School for 5 years in a row (1 of 5 schools out of 6,000 qualified schools), and a California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School. We have also been awarded the California School Board Association Golden Bell, which promotes excellence in education.
At Morrison we continue to be committed to our goal of providing a caring, positive and safe learning environment where each child is encouraged to make safe, responsible and respectful choices and to develop the academic skills necessary to reach their maximum learning potential. We are proud of our students, parents and staff and appreciate all their hard work. We are sure it will be a very productive year and we look forward to working to make this year our best yet.
