Dear Morris Families,
It is an honor and a privilege to be the new principal at Morris School. I am truly excited to continue the tradition of excellence and high standards that are associated with this outstanding school community.
Below are just some of the many milestones and accomplishments we have achieved at our school…

- Our school was also named a California Green Ribbon School, Silver Level, for our efforts in sustainability, student health, and environmental literacy.
