  • 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!
