Students versus staff battle it out on the court

Swoosh For Change game, 2018

One of Morgan’s most popular fundraisers, Swoosh For Change, is back. Swoosh For Change is a student versus staff basketball game hosted in order to raise money. This year’s game will be hosted in The Morgan School Gym on Friday, March 18, 2022, at 6 PM. The doors open at 5:30 PM. The Morgan Rock Band will also be performing at half-time.
This year, 100% of the proceeds from the game will be donated to the Connecticut Mental Health Foundation. This organization has helped the Morgan community so much in the past few years.
