Andrew J. Morrison School

Message from the Principal

My name is Ms. Alfaro, and I am the principal of A. J. Morrison Elementary School.  I feel fortunate to be part of a school that will continue to work towards creating an upward trend in increasing student academic potentials, community and family support, and teacher dedication in education that is deliberate and thoughtful.  I believe that building a strong unity between staff and families will result in the academic, social and emotional success of all of our students.  With all the above mentioned in mind, it is my goal to create a climate that gives students the opportunity to develop a positive outlook on their school experience.
