Morris Catholic Servant Leadership Program 
Students at Morris Catholic need to complete 15 hours of community service per grade level. For more information on this program, see the document below. 
iPads are purchased through Morris Catholic through the technology fee. This fee will be billed in early July and will cover the iPad, the keyboard/case, AppleCare, and our school management of the device. Students and parents will also be required to complete and sign an iPad Student-Parent Agreement Google Form. This must be completed before student orientations. iPads will be distributed at orientation and students will have a brief tutorial on how to set up the device for school use.
End of Year Records Release Form 
Please be sure to complete the "End of Year Records Release Form" and turn that into your student's previous school. Most schools send us academic and health forms, but turning this form into your student's school will ensure that we receive all updated records in a timely fashion. 
Summer Assignments 
Summer provides a time that is less structured than the school year. It offers all of us an opportunity to pursue learning at a more leisurely pace. All students are asked to read works of literature chosen by the English department. 
Various departments have also chosen enriching reads, views, or works for students enrolled in specific courses. For more information, click  HERE!
