ASB is a group of dedicated students (made up of all grades, sports and clubs) who strive to do anything for the better of the school. This student organization is established to govern finances, organize activities, and represent the students of Morton Jr/Sr High School. The funds raised by student organizations are called ASB funds. Each class, sport and club have there own ASB account. ASB funds represent an opportunity for students to not only raise money, but also learn the principles of operating a small business and learn leadership skills. ASB is constantly making contributions to the community, school, and their fellow students. Within the limits of the law created by the district.
What does ASB do?
ASB is the principal student government body on campus headed by six officers: president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, Historian, and Spirit Chair who govern the entire student body. The leadership class consists of the ASB officers, class officers, and accepted applicants. We ask for applicants to be involved in either sports or clubs on campus to help improve different events.
* note: you don’t halve to be involved in a club/sport to apply for leadership class.
Host School Events:
All of Morton Jr/Sr High School dances, rallies, and school activities are organized by ASB. The purpose of these events is to unify the school, raise school spirit, and provide a break from academics.
ASB comes up with unique, creative, and innovative ways for publicizing. ASB makes a mass production of bright informational posters, regarding new events. They are also in charge of updating the student bulletin which is read during Second block daily. We also use Facebook, Twitter, and Instragram to spread the word so please follow us and help us get the word out as well.
ASB is able to put on all of these events through fundraising. The majority of the money ASB receives comes from selling ads for the planners and selling items from the Student Store. The rest of the fundraisers for the year are to support the class, clubs, sport teams meat there financial needs.
Hold Business Meetings:
ASB holds weekly business meetings to discuss and vote on various issues by communicating and contributing ideas. During meetings, ASB makes business decisions like approving expenditures to ensure no conflicts arise in upcoming activities such as dances, fundraisers, blood drives and rallies. We also look into upcoming fundraisers and help manage class, club, and athletic accounts at the school. If any student at Morton High School is involved in any activity, regardless of money that relates to the school -ASB MUST approve it.
