Spring onsite activities provide much-needed in-person Fun

April-May 2021

We have loved having our students onsite in the mornings for activities: it is such fun creating Art together, and engaging and socializing in 3-D again! It was also quite interesting taking a tour of the new Denny Power substation a few blocks away, thanks Seattle City Light!

New Friends of Morningside Academy Google Group

November 2, 2020

Hello Morningside families!

All parents and guardians of currently-enrolled Morningside students were sent an email invitation in November to join the new Friends of Morningside Academy (FOMA) Google Group. Email if you didn’t receive your invitation/if you’re interested in joining. This group was started to build an informal community where families can connect, share, and help each other, including: setting up social activities, offering recommendations for medical professionals, specialists, therapists, pass along clothes/sports equipment, offer praise and gratitude (AKA positive strokes), and more!
