A Welcome Message from Principal Kim Cantrell

Welcome to Morrison Elementary School


The first high school, called Morrison Academy, began in 1906. In 1921, a new grammar school was erected, and in 1942, a new high school was constructed.  The combination grammar and high school enrolled approximately 450 pupils. In 1969, due to the consolidation of all county high schools, Morrison School became a 1st through 8th grade school with O.M. Womack, Jr. as principal.     

In 2010, land was purchased and in 2011, construction began on a new building that was designed to accommodate our growing student population and overcrowding issues.  The new building opened in 2012.

Cookie Dough Fundraiser Online Option

Morrison students are participating in our first fundraiser of the year selling cookie dough and other food products now until Wednesday, September 5th. The money for the orders should be collected at the time of the sale and sent in to your child's homeroom teacher.  This year, there is an option for friends and family to shop online.  In order to do this, you will need to go online and register your child at mep.forfundsonline.com using school ID 55967.  Your child will then receive an ID number so they receive credit for the sales.  Thanks so much for participating in our first fundraiser! 

Migrant Forms Due

If you haven't already returned the migrant form that was sent home, please fill it out and return it to school as soon as possible.  This is required by the state to be filled out each year.  Please contact your child's teacher if you need an extra copy.
