MORRIS --On Friday, March 1 students at Morris Area Elementary School were encouraged to “Dare Mighty Things” by dressing in clothing representing their dream career.

Students also were invited to submit essays describing their dream careers. Of the over 100 essays submitted, 12 were chosen to be read aloud during the assembly. Students also heard from community members about their careers.
Student readers at the event wereParker Miller, Tess Deane, Josie Jacobson, Brett Howell, Gerardo Villela, Chaylee Eystad, Isabel Fynboh, Greta Hentges, Berenice Arreguin, Jaden Ross, Emma Berlinger and Joshua Jackson.
