Cut and clip Boxtops are still being accepted and can be dropped off at the school or at the GFWC Morristown Library on Tuesday afternoons from 3 to 5 p.m. and Thursday afternoon from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Box Tops 4 Education website is for additional information.

The Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA), Mr. Trad and the students of Morristown Elementary would like to thank the community who brought their vehicles in Saturday, Sept. 28, for a carwash and/or made a donation to support this fundraiser for the 8th Grade Trip in Spring.

The Governing Board meeting will be held Monday, Oct. 9 at 6 p.m. in the Morristown School Library. Parents and community members are always welcome.

The Morristown PTSA’s annual Fall Festival will be on Saturday, Nov. 2, from 3 to 6 p.m. Activities include games and a cakewalk with cakes, cupcakes, cookies and pies, as well as delicious food. Help is needed with all aspects of the festival, including set up/take down, volunteering one or two hours at a game and bringing cakes, cupcakes, cookies and pies for the cakewalk. Call the school at (623) 546-5100 for more information.

Breakfast and lunch are offered free during the school year, with breakfast served 7:40 a.m. to 8 a.m. and lunch starting at 11:30 a.m.( Milk is offered with all meals). Students arriving at school late (after 8 a.m.) will not be served breakfast. These guidelines are necessary to allow the cook time to prepare for lunch and children to be in their classrooms on time. Program benefits and services are available to all children without regard to race, sex, handicap, age or national origin. If a child has been determined by a doctor to be handicapped and it would prevent the child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make any substitutions prescribed by the doctor. When a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal. If a child needs substitutions because of a medical or dietary condition, contact the school for further information. “This institution is an equal opportunity provider.”

This section of the newspaper is published the first and third Wednesday of the month. Information about community happenings or events should be sent to Susan Marshall at or P.O. Box 459, Morristown, AZ 85342. Please send the Thursday prior to those dates.
