Principal’s Message

Dear Morton Families,

Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year! As most of you know I am Susan Sanchez, and am so privileged and excited to be leading Morton as Principal this academic year. I am heading into my fifth year as a Little Bulldog here at Morton. The families and children are amazing and unique. I have fallen in love with the North/West side. We are so excited to be adding to our family from what was the Heroes School area.

 Along with my dedicated staff we will continue to work with the scholars at Morton preparing them for an amazing future that they deserve. It is Team Morton’s mission to create a rigorous learning environment through high expectations for every single student. We will create college bound and work force ready, successful contributing citizens who leave us with the excellent skills needed to be able to achieve their highest aspirations. I anticipate another year filled with many successes, as my team and I support the academic, social and emotional growth of your child here at Morton Elementary School.

Team Morton continues to strive for that excellence maintaining our performance rating on the State Report Card. During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Morton the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at Morton.

Remember to fill out the parent volunteer form on the district website to volunteer in the classroom, (VIPS). Also please be sure to attain your parent portal access from the front office, if you do not already have access to Infinite Campus. Through Infinite Campus you can check grades and attendance. As a reminder, the first full day of school is Tuesday August 20. Monday, August 19, will be an assessment day. Parents will make an appointment for this assessment day with their teachers on our mini-open house on August 16th.

Looking forward to a fantastic year. 



Susan K. Sanchez
