Welcome Back Morris School District Community, 

Each September we reassert our commitment to the highest standard of academic excellence. Our goals are ambitious and we have an aspiring agenda in the 2016-2017 school year, including the opening of a state-of-the-art new wing at Morristown High School, a reading and writing initiative, and a continued exploration of how to meaningfully integrate technology so that each student can achieve at the highest levels. 

While we prize this progressive agenda, the Morris School District remains committed to those traditional values that are the hallmark of successful individuals and communities: developing a disciplined work ethic, fostering strong moral character, living a balanced life and seeing one's connection and responsibilities to each other and the world. The cultivation of these attributes will empower our students to live valuable and dignified lives. 

I wish you well in the new school year and I look forward to continuing our dialogue.
