In 1994 Morrison School began a partnership with River’s Way, a non-profit organization that provides team building activities and adventures for people of all abilities. River’s Way facilitates programs with our students that focus on teamwork, leadership development, risk taking, and social skills through outdoor adventure activities. Middle School and High School students participate in activities that include hiking, rock wall climbing, caving, canoeing, and other challenging physical activities which are used to enhance their physical, personal, and social abilities.
In 2020, Morrison School began a partnership with Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM), a non-profit organization that provides schools with the tools necessary to provide instruction in traditional regional and bluegrass music. Thanks to JAM, students have the opportunity to choose between instruments such as the ukulele, banjo, guitar, and fiddle.
Morrison School Student Council is an organization conducted by students and supervised by adults. The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body. They help share student ideas, interests and concerns with the school wide community. Any student that is interested in leadership, organizational behavior, event planning or becoming more involved in the school are welcome to become involved. A few of the projects that Morrison School Student Council plan and facilitate include: participation in the Bristol City Christmas Parade, Prom, Spring Fling, holiday celebrations and costume contests and community service projects.
The Morrison School Yearbook Club is a student centered organization that produces the Morrison School's annual yearbook. Every year, club members work together to photograph important and fun school events, design a creative layout, and as a result, produce a memorable record of the school year for students and their families. Club members are fully in charge of both the photography and design of the yearbook, which gives them a wonderful opportunity to express their creativity while developing a product that will become a valued keepsake for the entire student body. The Yearbook Club meets weekly throughout the school year.
The Blue Ridge Garden Club helped Morrison students build a school garden in an effort to provide extra learning opportunities for our students. The club members continue to work with students to maintain the garden, plant fresh produce and flowers, and they facilitate garden-related activities and projects to help beautify the school as well as outdoor spaces at home.
