    All three of our children went through Morris and we couldn't have been happier. The teachers are caring professional highly competent and zealously hard working. The administration is very reponsive. Our biggest complaint was the lack of an auditorium...a 'cafetorium' just doesn't cut it. Also the school has overreacted to make the 'healthy' crowd happy - no treats for birthdays or holidays...C'mon!!!! Also peanutbutter seems be a really bad word here with dreaded peanutbutter eaters segregated from the general population. The school was rebuilt several years ago and the facilities are beautiful with very nice age-appropriate playground areas. Art classes yield work that you will save and proudly display for years! The Morris PTO is a great group with which to get involved. It is 'many hands make light work' in action with a lot of people doing what little bits they can. Altogether a great deal is accomplished for everyone's benefit.

    I think this schools education system is wonderful but the lunches are not. Once my friend once found mold in her yogurt and the lunch aid just told her to scoop that part out and eat the rest! Also the milks and yogurts use-by dates are over due.
