2013-2014 TRIP AROUND THE COMMUNITY RESCHEDULED!

Due to inclement weather, the First Grade Trip Around the Community is rescheduled until Thursday, April 10.

On Thursday, their teachers will accompany the students as they take a day-long walking trip to some of the many community resources that are right here on Beekman Avenue. The visits will include:

  • Fire Department
  • Police Station
  • Village Hall
  • Mahopac National Bank
  • RSHM Life Center

The Students will also take part in some activities here at Morse:

  • Main Street Sweets
  • Sleepy Hollow Rec with Mrs. Robin Pell
  • K-9 Show
  • Ambulance
  • Post Office
  • Yoo’s Martial Arts
  • Reflection time on the green top to discuss what students have learned

The students will have lunch in their classrooms.

You can help make this a success for all by doing the following:

  • Send a bag lunch and a drink in a disposable bag
  • Be sure your child is wearing comfortable shoes
  • Dress your child for the weather.

Were You Aware? Enrichment Opportunities at Morse:
Great things are happening in our district! As pulled from the district website:

Second grade students will receive enrichment opportunities as a whole class, instead of as a pull-out program.  The goal behind this format is to provide all students with early exposure to enrichment opportunities.  These early opportunities may foster interests and talents which can further cultivate differentiated enrichment opportunities in later grades.

Each month, each of the second grade classes will each receive a new enrichment lesson provided by one of our challenge teachers: Mrs. Massaro, for the first half of the year, or Mrs. Hickey, for the second half.  Other lessons will be coordinated with grade level team leaders in order to enhance the curriculum on topics such as citizenship and critical thinking skills.

 To learn more, check out the article posted 11/9/13 about the Second Graders trip to Peabody on the district website.


Trip Around the Community  4/4/2014

First Graders prepare to take a trip around their community this Friday.  They will visit the Police Station, Fire Station, Mahopac Community Bank as well as have visitors from the community come to the school and share what they do to make our community so special!
