  • MMS Volleyball  Morton Volleyball 2019-2020 (NEW INFO)

     Before any athlete may participate in tryouts for the 2019-20 volleyball season, they must bring an up to date (less than one year old) KHSAA sports physical. A KHSAA sports physical is different than a sixth grade physical when entering middle school. ATHLETES WHO DO NOT PRESENT A CURRENT KHSAA SPORTS PHYSICAL WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Due to an unforeseen gym scheduling conflict, we are required to move the 2019 Morton Volleyball Team tryouts to the evening of July 15th & 16th. Tryouts will now be just two days instead of three. Players must attend both days. Please have your player report to the Morton Middle School gymnasium at the designated time slot for their grade. The schedule will be the same for both days:


    July 15th & 16th

    6th Grade - 5:00-5:45 pm

    7th Grade - 6:00-6:45 pm

    8th Grade - 7:00-7:45 pm




    After team selection, there will be a mandatory parent/player meeting (as previously announced) on Thursday July 18th from 6:00-7:00 pm in the Morton Library.

  • Summer Reading Lists 2019-2020

    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, interest and reading levels.  Happy reading!
