  • Yankee Candle Yankee Candle Fundraising

    Please Support Morton Middle School

    We are partnering with Yankee Candle Fundraising to help achieve our goal this year ($30,000). They are the world’s #1 candle brand and offer a wide range of premium candles, fragrances, and décor items at a wide range of prices. But the most important thing to know is that 40% of every sale goes to us! Students can earn prizes and rewards based on the number of sales made. $10 donations will count as one sale.

    There are 2 ways you can shop---catalog and online. And we’re asking you to help us sell 2 ways also---order yourself and contact out of town friends or family as well. Perfect gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, housewarmings, and many more occasions. All students have been given a color catalog with instructions on how to order and online shopping is as easy as going to the Yankee Candle website and entering Morton’s group # 990098135 in the “Start Shopping” box. Click on the “Seller Login” button and fill out the “sign up to be a seller” from using the Morton group # and sell across the country with the new Mobile App.

    The sale runs from August 20-September 4, with our only turn in date set for September 4th in AL classes. Checks should be made out to Morton Middle School and orders will ship within 2-4 weeks of receipt. Please do not send orders to school before September 4th. No door to door sales please. For more information, contact Mr. Williams at 859-381-3533 ext. 41402

  • 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!
