Welcome to Morgan

Morgan offers a comprehensive early childhood development program. Primary students, in grades 1-3, are divided by grade levels. They are grouped and re-grouped by skills in reading and math, according to abilities and need.

Some intermediate teachers specialize in math, social studies, science and language arts. They utilize curriculum guides, with flexibility to design instruction to meet individual or group needs.

Besides classroom teachers, there are additional teachers for art, humanities, vocal music, speech/language, physical education, library/media center and gifted-talented-creative programs.

Morgan offers special-needs instruction and facilities for MMD/FMD, a deaf educator and full-time interpreters for the hearing-impaired.

Morgan to Host Kindergarten Registration for Children Not in Head Start

Morgan Elementary School will host Kindergarten Screening and Early Registration for any child who is not currently enrolled in the Paducah Head Start program on Friday, April 25 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at Morgan Elementary.

Principal Vicki Conyer says this is an opportunity for any parent who wishes to enroll their child in kindergarten to get a jump start on the process.

“This event will serve a twofold purpose. Not only will we be registering new children, but we will also be screening those students to determine where they are in their learning, something that already takes place with students who are enrolled in preschool.”

Lori Belt, kindergarten teacher, states that it is important for parent and child to attend. “Any children who will be five years old on or before October 1, 2015 are encouraged to be here that day. It will take about an hour for the parent to register and for the teachers to screen the child.”

Contact the school office at 270-444-5760 to schedule an appointment. Morgan Elementary School is located at 2200 S. 28th Street in Paducah.
