Principal’s Message

Dear Morton Families,

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! My name is Susan Sanchez, and I am so privileged and excited to be leading Morton as Principal this academic year! I have had a fantastic first year here at Morton. The families and children are amazing and unique! 

Along with my dedicated staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Morton by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will continue to focus on , 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of the newly adopted Reading and Math Series focusing on results driven, direct instruction strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Morton Elementary School.

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 29, 2016.  I look forward to working with you and your child.


Susan K. Sanchez
