Morse Pond School Mission Statement:

Morse Pond School, in collaboration with families and the
community, will educate all students at high levels while meeting the needs of the whole child.



November:

Student Council Notes: Thank you to everyone who purchased a pink MP bracelet to raise awareness
for cancer. Thanks to your generosity, we raised $550.00 which will be donated to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
The Morse Pond Student Council will be holding a food drive beginning Monday, November 4th and
ending on Monday, November 25th. Please send in non-perishable food items, which will be put in each homeroom in a designated box. The items collected will be donated to the Falmouth Service Center.

Box Tops: We collect box tops year round. Typically the team who brings in the most over the year
receives an ice cream party in the spring. Send the Box Tops in with your child in an envelope or bag
with their name and teacher’s name marked on it.

students and parents/guardians are invited to attend to learn more about the Lawrence School for the
2020-2021 school year. The event will feature an informational panel of current students and teachers to
answer any questions, followed by an extracurricular activities fair and an open house forum. You will
have the ability to walk through the school and learn more about what students can expect for the
upcoming school year. Childcare will be provided. Please disregard any information about the
Information Night that you may have seen in the newspaper. If you have any questions, please call the

Important Notes for Parents/Guardians/Students:
Reminder that students are not to enter the building until 8:15am. If you drop your child off at school in the morning, please do so at 8:15am, no earlier. Thank you.

Reminder: If you drop your child off at school in the morning, please do so at 8:15 am, no earlier. Also,
please remember that Massachusetts Law states that ALL lanes of traffic must stop when a school
bus is stopped to pick up or drop off children! Many cars have been passing the school busses that are
in the driveway with their signs out as students are getting on and off at drop-off and dismissal.

Reminder from the YMCA: If you need child care for the half school day on September 24th, you must
pre-register (even if you have registered for the whole school year). Please contact Claudia Twombly at
ctwombly@ymcacapecod.org.


Free/Reduced Lunch: Families must apply each year for Free or Reduced Lunch. Unless you have received a letter stating you are automatically on Free/Reduced lunch because of a specific program, please fill out an application form (that was included in packet) and turn it into the office. There
is a grace period of a few weeks at the beginning of the school year if your child had Free/Reduced lunch last year, but when that ends, your child will be charged full price for lunch or breakfast.


CORI Forms: Many parents sent in the CORI form to the office. Thank you! Please make sure that you visit the office in person as you must present your current driver’s license, in person, to our secretaries who will verify and process the forms. You can come in to the office any time from 8:00am-4:00pm
Monday through Friday.


Morse Pond School Week Ahead: The Morse Pond School Week Ahead newsletter will begin going
home next week, Friday, September 20th via email. If you do not have access to email, we can provide a
hard copy.

Tuesday, September 24th. Please submit the flyer that was sent home and the PTO will receive 20% on
all dine-in, take-out and delivery sales.
