A Message From Mr. Ramirez...
As this new semester moves forward, it is very important to keep in mind that our students in grades 3-5 will be taking the new Smarter Balanced Assessments in May. These exams, which are based on the Common Core Standards, will be taken by using a computer. Students will be tested in Language Arts and Math. This test is taken only once a year; therefore, we must keep preparing the students as much as possible throughout this semester.
Please assist us in making sure your child does his/her best on these important tests by completing all assigned work and studying every day.
Dear Morningside Parents:

Box Tops For Education
Morningside students are collecting box tops to earn money for our school. All you need to do is clip the Box Tops coupons from hundreds of participating General Mills products. Please remember to send your “Box Tops for Education” box tops to school with your child.

You can visit our Morningside School's own Donors Choose web page, and choose a project you would like to see become a reality. If you can't find a project from your child's classroom, you can share this opportunity with their teacher and encourage them to submit a classroom project. Teachers can learn more and get started with creating a project at DonorsChooseLA.org.
On this Memorial Day, let's take time and always remember to be thankful for all those brave men and women in uniform, who paid for the freedoms we enjoy in this great country with their lives.
