About Friday’s Field Trips

Hi Morey Parents,

This is a just a quick reminder about our first Fall Discovery field trip taking place tomorrow, Friday, August 26. Our entire school is going on a field trip, so every student needs to be prepared to spend most of the day outside.

  • Our 8th graders are going rock climbing in Golden with City Wild.
  • Our 7th graders are going to Chatfield State Park and are Stand Up Paddleboarding.
  • Our 6th graders are attending a nature program at Lookout Mountain nature center.

In order to be prepared, all students should wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing, including a jacket in case of rain. Students can bring a sack lunch from home, or pick one up in the cafeteria before their trip departs. For 6th and 7th grade students, we have enough space on the bus to accommodate any additional parent volunteers that would like to join us. 8th grade parents are also welcome to join us, but will need to provide their own transportation. 

Thank you and we are looking forward to a great first field trip tomorrow.

Alisha Janes, Teach to One Math Director

2016-17 Successes!

Morey Community,

It’s been a powerful journey over the last two years to build the kind of school culture we can be proud of. As we welcome new students to Morey this week and engage all students in a Student Culture Academy, I am happy to report that we made MAJOR strides last year toward that positive school culture we are aiming for. Please take a moment to celebrate the statistics below, stemming from our MAP testing, Science CMAS results, parent satisfaction survey, and student satisfaction survey. I am pleased to report that we improved in EVERY single category on the parent survey, with an average increase of 21%. The student survey also increased significantly, with an average 11% increase. Highlights from both surveys are below. Thank you for your hard work and support!
