School Briefs for 5 October 2012

Article Date: 
5 October, 2012 (All day)

 Morgan Elementary School , Middle School, and Morgan High School will be having an evacuation drill at 9:45 a.m. Oct. 10, in preparation  for a chemical spill or events such as a dam break.  Superintendent Ken Adams, staff from the district, the schools and Morgan County Sherriff’s office will be along the route to maintain order for approximately 1,600 students. They will be leaving the schools and meeting above Wilkinson’s Construction on 1st South.  Please treat this area as a school zone to help us make this a seamless evacuation.
Every year the 6th grade Social Studies curriculum focuses on ancient civilizations. We learn more than just dates from the past, but also the “how’s” and “why’s” to those ancient places. Part of learning about the past includes learning about the artifacts that are left behind by those civilizations that have gone on before. When learning about those artifacts, naturally the question arises, “What artifacts will we leave, and what will they say about us?” To learn more about our past and our history, we took a walking field trip to the South Morgan Cemetery. The students got the chance to view history with their own eyes, while learning a little cemetery etiquette at the same time.  The kids had a great time, and hopefully got to see how history can apply to, and enrich their lives. This is just one of the great things going on in the 6th Grade!
