  • Summer Reading Lists 2018-2019

    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, interest and reading levels.  Happy reading!

  • 11th Region Champions & Fayette County A-Team Tournament Champions MMS Boys Basketball

    Morton Boys’ Basketball team came into the A-team season looking to defend their title run from the previous year.  The Mustangs lost their opening season FCPS game in January, however the team stayed positive reflecting on the fact they had lost their opening season game the year before and still finished as champions. The Mustangs lost 2 more regular season games, but were starting to play more like a team.  Morton entered the 11th region tournament on a win streak and played strong throughout the tourney beating St. Peter and Paul, LCA, Hayes, and Scott County in the finals to become 11th Region Champions. The Mustangs entered the FCPS tournament as the #3 seed but were getting hot at the right time.  The Mustangs defeated Bryan Station in the opening round of the tournament 87-43, propelling them to the final four where they would face E.J. Hayes the Mustangs defeated Hayes 55-45. Morton found themselves in the Championship game for the 2nd year in a row where they would face LTMS.  Once again the Mustangs prevailed over the Blackcats of LTMS winning the championship game 48-37. Morton was led in scoring by Kai Simpson with 13, Kanye Henderson and Abe Nelson both  added 11 points apiece and big man Gavin Salva had 10.  Jacob Lane came off the bench and grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out 3 assists bringing great energy to the game. Ben Prather was a lock down defender from the start of the game and really stifled  the opponents offense. “I am super proud of the adversity our boys faced and their ability to stay focused while making this run toward their second championship.  It is not easy to win the City 2 years in a row in Lexington and these boys did it representing their school and community with great character.”
