Among various activities celebrating the 100th day of school, Moriches Elementary School made 100 positive phone calls to families sharing anecdotes such as how their children are positive role models, leaders, good citizens, hardworking and more. At least three families from each class were chosen randomly to receive a call from a Moriches Elementary employee including teachers, support staff, teaching assistants and administrators. In total, more than 150 families received phone calls.
“The response was overwhelmingly positive from the families as well as the staff,” said Deirdre Redding, Assistant Principal, Moriches Elementary School, who spearheaded the effort. “There were many tears of joy.”
