Principal’s Message

Dear Morton Families,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! As most of you know I am Susan Sanchez, and I am so privileged and excited to be leading Morton as Principal this academic year! I am heading into my third 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! 

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 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 successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Morton Elementary School. We are well on our way to fulfilling that vision, as our state report card rating has increased two levels from Priority Improvement to Performance! 

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 our school.  As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. 

As a reminder, the first day of school is Monday, August 22, 2017.  I look forward to working with you and your child.


Susan K. Sanchez
