Welcome to Morenci Elementary School!
Welcome Back! The 2016/2017 school year is going to be a wonderful year. I asked the staff what makes our district such a great place for kids. A supportive community and friendly teachers topped the list. Morenci is a warm community and a wonderful place to raise your family.
We are implementing the 7 Habits of Happy Kids this year. The 7 Habits are based on Sean Covey’s book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective people. Our children will learn about one habit each month. They are; Be Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood, Synergize, Sharpen the Saw. We know by taking responsibility for self, life becomes what we want it to be.
Our school offers a competency based learning experience based on the research of Dr. Bob Sornson (Earlylearningfoundation.com). Student growth is monitored on a set of 30-35 essential skills, necessary for success, at each grade level. Ask us about the expectations and skills that your child should be working on.
Here at the elementary we take a team approach to learning. We ask for volunteers to help at the classroom level, building level, and in the lunch room from 11:00-12:00.
Morenci Elementary offers Great Start classes 5 days per week and Head Start classes 4 days a week. We offer Developmental kindergarten and K-4 educational opportunities. We offer Art/Math integration, Physical education, and Music every week. We are fortunate to have a State of the Art computer lab with smartboard technology. We recently remodeled our library and updated the reading selections to meet the interests of our young learners. We offer after school tutoring, summer school, and opportunities to participate in Minecraft club and Science Olympiad.
We hope you will take the opportunity to come and see what the Morenci Community and Morenci schools can offer you and your family!
