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 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!
