Principal's Corner

Dear Morrow Middle School Community,

My name is Lawvigneaud D. Harrell.  It is with great enthusiasm and anticipation to greet you for the first time as the new principal of Morrow Middle School.  During my interview process, I had the privilege and honor of meeting Morrow parents, teachers, and administration.  Moreover, I look forward to meeting all stakeholders in the upcoming months. 

Morrow Middle School is a school with long-standing traditions of academic achievement and athletic success.  It is my intention to continue to build on this rich tradition and history.  I strongly believe that by working hard each day to unite parents, teachers, students and community stakeholders toward the common goal of improving the education for all students is paramount. Through this shared vision, I believe that Morrow Middle School will become a school of excellence.

As we prepare for the 2017-2018 school year, I am in my seventeenth year as an educator.  I enjoyed my first seven years as a fifth grade teacher in Alabama and Georgia.  My last ten years I have served as a high school assistant principal at Ronald E. McNair High School and Jonesboro High School.  The aforementioned experiences have made me a well-rounded educator with a diverse background in education. 

During my time as assistant principal at Jonesboro High School, the school was named a Title I School of Distinction.  Jonesboro High School was also named state basketball champions for two consecutive years 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.  Jonesboro High School was named a “Beating the Odds School” for 2015-2016 school year.  Additionally, we held the highest CTAE Career Pathway completer percentage in Clayton County Public Schools for the past five years.  These accomplishments were due to establishing a shared vision, where all stakeholders worked together.

My time as a classroom teacher, I formed my passion for educating and motivating young minds.  This was the catalyst that formed my philosophy of education. I believe that all students should have a safe and secure learning environment where they can receive a high-quality education.  Furthermore, I believe that rigorous instruction and active engagement are imperative for a 21st century education.

Additionally, I am confident that by setting high expectations, and challenging students to work hard, we can grow as a learning community.  Further, in order to foster your child’s social and emotional growth, please encourage him or her to get involved in extra-curricular activities.  Students who are immersed in school activities tend to enjoy school more. 

As your principal, I ask that you become active participants in your child’s education.  Parental involvement is critical for a child to be successful at school, so please contact the school if you are interested in volunteering.  There are a number ways to be involved at Morrow Middle School. 

In closing, please feel free to call, email, or visit me with your concerns or ideas for the betterment of the school.  I look forward to meeting and partnering with you this school year.
