Morse Elementary | Principal's Message & Expectations
Welcome to Morse Elementary!
Morse is a truly special place where a diverse community of learners work hard alongside a dedicated staff to become the best version of themselves. The staff at Morse prides themselves in doing “Whatever it Takes” to ensure each child receives what they need in order to succeed. As a part of the One Troy world-class school system, we have a commitment to support our community based on our four pillars.
We are committed to:
Prioritizing the learning of our people (high-quality professional staff development).
Empowering students to connect learning to their world (through authentic, innovative, and deep learning).
Attending to the social, emotional, and physical well-being of all (through engaging environments that inspire development and outcomes for all).
Investing in the learning of Pre-Kindergarten students (providing opportunities for early learning for all students).
To meet these commitments our team implements a comprehensive literacy instruction model that incorporates the workshop approach in reading and writing. In mathematics we are currently piloting a new curriculum to ensure we are offering our students with the very best mathematics instruction we can. We also offer a comprehensive multi-tiered system of supports in both academic and social/behavioral instruction.
To provide a positive learning environment the students and staff focus on being Respectful, Responsible, Safe, and in Control. Behavior expectations are taught and reinforced on a daily basis by providing students with the tools to meet those expectations through character education and social-emotional learning opportunities.
Most of all we want our students to feel connected, supported, and loved here at Morse and they certainly do!
