Morse Street Junior Public School's Mission Statement

At Morse Street Public School, we strive to be reflective practitioners and learners, as we coach/guide and support our students to discover their strengths and to effectively advocate for their needs and those of others, in order to become successful global citizens, who think critically, respect diversity, care for the environment and their own well-being, and are resilient to change.
 
The diversity within our walls gives us the strength to build an inclusive, vibrant school community that encourages active participation in all aspects of school life.

Childcare and a TDSB Parenting and Literacy Centre

Woodgreen Child Care has a school age program with before and after school care, as well as a Kindergarten and pre-school program.
The TDSB Parenting and Literacy Centre welcomes parents with pre-schoolers to drop in Monday to Thursday from 8:45-12:45

More Information About Morse Street Junior Public School

We focus on each and every child

Data: Teachers know exactly what each student can do right now.
Descriptive feedback: Teachers ensure each student knows specifically what the one or two things are that he or she can do right now to improve.
Timely interventions: As soon as a teacher sees a child struggling, the teacher does something to address that right away (extra attention, extra help).

Our Library

Student Life - Where You Belong

GO TEAM

WHAT SETS US APART

We are a community and our Parent Council plays a huge role in making Morse a special place. Special events and experiences enrich learning. These include visits by Scientists in the Schools, Ontario Arts Council, and plays and artists presented by Prologue to the Performing Arts. Classes have support to go on field trips - experiences that make learning real.  At Halloween, parents turn out to watch as the whole school parades around the grounds.  In December, each class is invited to the gym for a special Winter WonderSnack. At the Multi-Cultural Dinner each family brings a 'favourite' dish and parents, students, and staff sit down together for a community meal. Movie Night is a whole family event, as is the February Family Dance. The spring Garden Party has families contributing plants, buying plants, and spending the afternoon together . In June the Fun Fair is a tradition with games, BBQ, and a Silent Auction.

PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

The active Morse Parent Council meets every six weeks in the Library. Childcare (and food!) is available and all parents are welcome.
Parent and community volunteers support our school in many ways: in the classrooms, the library, with Scientists in the Schools, on field trips, greening, and with fundraising projects and community events.
We work with our extended community in many ways. We work closely with Woodgreen childcare and with the Red Door shelter. We have student teachers and co-op students from nearby universities, colleges and high schools. We participate in community events such as the Earth Day Community Clean-up.
