  • Help raise money for Australia


    About 1 billion animals have died in the Australia wildfires. Help Morton raise money for recovery by doing Penny Wars! Each Academic Leadership will have a milk jug in their classroom for any student that would like to bring in bills or coins. The Academic Leadership with the most money in their jug by March 16 will get a Starbucks treat. For questions, email Carla Trisko.
