  • 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 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!

    A-Team Champs

    The boys “A” basketball team from Morton capped the season with a hard-fought 47-39 victory over Southern Middle for the 2019 city championship. Morton also secured the award for highest GPA. The March 7 tournament finals saw several lead changes, and the score was tied late into the fourth quarter before Morton rallied behind Anderson Jones, who finished with 11 points. Coach Jeremy Jones also commended Konlin Brown for huge defensive plays down the stretch and Todd Dumphord for crucial assists and free throws. Mason Hawkins led the Mustangs with 21 points while Will Kessinger and Nathan Sloan hit the boards effectively. | Tournament brackets
