If You Missed BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT….

At Back to School Night last Thursday evening, Mr. Manning outlined many of the great achievements of our students. As he stated, “It takes a village,” and we are proud of the student body, staff, and parents whose hard work and passion make Morristown High School a school we are proud to be a part of.  We congratulate the MHS family on its past successes (click here for slideshow) and look forward to this year’s wins, championships, medals, accolades and victories in academics, in the arts and on the athletic fields.
