    Professional Mission Statement from the Principal

    My mission as principal for Morgan Elementary, a school committed to excellence and strengthened by diversity is to prepare each student to cooperatively contribute and thrive as a successful learner and well respected citizen in an ever changing competitive world, by engaging in a wide variety of high quality learning opportunities through a viable curriculum, the development of high character, and the partnership of all families and community members.

    Principal News

    As part of the 2012 Referendum, a new school will be built near our school, housing grades 4-8. The following are some highlights. Please see the Referendum 2012 link on the District homepage (www.beloitschools.net) for school renderings.

    EAST SIDE
    Fall of 2015
    Except for the expanded busing and school day changes, the East Side will not undergo major changes for the 2014-2015 School year.  The transition to the Intermediate School structure will begin in the Fall of 2015.

    In 2015, Aldrich (currently grades 6-8) will serve grades 4-8, in addition to the new Fran Fruzen Intermediate School, which will be completed by July of 2015.  McLenegan and Morgan will be closed, but not before community celebrations of the many years of learning and fun that took place at these schools are held (details to be announced next year).

    SCHOOL START AND END TIMES
    Proposed School start/end time changes will begin in the Fall of 2014.
    Pre-K - 3rd Grade Schools (Merrill, Robinson, Todd) 7:50 a.m. - 2:55 p.m.
    4th - 8th Grade Schools (Aldrich, McLenegan, Morgan) 8:35 a.m. - 3:52 p.m.

    SITE PLANS FOR FRUZEN INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL:
    Fruzen Intermediate School, named after long-time educator, administrator and "Champion of Education", Francis J. Fruzen, is scheduled for completion in July of 2015.  In the Fall of 2015, McLenegan and Morgan Elementary Schools (serving grades 4-5) will be closed.  East side students in grades 4-8 will be served by Aldrich and Fruzen Intermediate Schools. (Bounday Map coming soon.)
