Morton Jr/Sr High School has started a new program:  We are tracking the days of “No Referrals.” The concept is a reward program for the number of days our students can go without being written up. So at five days without referral:  On the sixth day, students will be one day of five minute passing periods.  Ten days: on day 11, students will get an extra 10 minutes at lunch. Fifteen days: on the 16th day – you’ll get one full week of five-minute passing periods which will last a whole week, as long as no referrals come in. Twenty days: We will take one period and have outdoor class competitions, which will be planned out by the ASB, this will more likely take place a few days after the 20th consecutive day. At 30 days: There will be a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, movie in the library, board games in class rooms, all of the will begin shortly after lunch time, and continue throughout the day. This is a trial program - and we don’t know how successful you can be….. Good luck students! 

Senior class members are reminded to check their mail boxes in Christy’s office weekly. At this time scholarship information is being provided to you, and you don’t want to miss out.
