Winter Grove: To provide holiday support for families in our school community, we will put up the "Gecko Winter Grove" in the front lobby on which will be gecko cards with special requests for Morris Grove children and their siblings. Please choose a gecko from the grove and bring in the unwrapped gift (with gecko attached) to Angela Snider in the school office. The Grove will go up Monday, November 4.
