  • MMS Volleyball Morton volleyball for 2019-20 

    Before any student may participate in tryouts for the 2019-20 volleyball season, they must bring an up to date (less than 1 year old) KHSAA sports physical. This is different from a sixth grade physical when entering middle school. Athletes who do not present a current KHSAA sports physical will not be allowed to participate; no exceptions. 


    Bring to tryouts:

    • Current KHSAA sports physical
    • Water bottle
    • Athletic shoes / volleyball court shoes
    • Knee pads (if possible)

    Because of a gym scheduling conflict, we have moved the volleyball tryouts to the evenings of July 15-16. Tryouts will now be two days instead of three, and players must attend both days. Please have your player report to the gym at the designated time slot for their grade. The schedule will be the same for both days:

    July 15 & 16

    • 6th Grade - 5 to 5:45 p.m.
    • 7th Grade - 6 to 6:45 p.m.
    • 8th Grade - 7 to 7:45 p.m. 

    July 18: After team selection, Morton will host a mandatory parent/player meeting at 6 p.m. July 18 in the library.

  • Summer Reading Lists for 2019-20

    One of our favorite sayings here at Morton is “Mustangs who read succeed!”  Summer is a great opportunity for students to continue Summer Reading exercising and stretching their brain through daily reading.  Therefore, all Morton students are required to read two books off of the approved grade-level specific summer reading list.  Upon returning to school, students will take Accelerated Reader tests to demonstrate their comprehension of each book in English/Language Arts class.  The book lists were developed to include a diverse listing of genre, interests, and reading levels.  Happy reading!
