Dear Families,

I am very excited for our official OPENING and RIBBON CUTTING this Sunday, Sept. 30 at 3pm. The whole event will be a glorious celebration and acknowledgement of the hard work of so many of you and others who created 75 Morton.

This flyer gives you some indication of the size of the event and the many people who will be there to talk and spread the good cheer. PLEASE come to the OPENING! We'll have 75M tattoos, stilt-walkers, Bubble Dad, freshly popped popcorn and student speakers! And it’s just one hour. So bring your family and friends! Our students can wear their 75 Morton gear and cheer for themselves, for all of you, for the history of our school, for the future of 75 Morton!

This Friday, we begin our School Tours for prospective families. We are seeking volunteers - both 6th and 7th grade parents & guardians - to staff the tours (now that you’ve had your own!). We ask that you arrive at 8:30am for a brief prep session and be prepared to stay until 10:30am. Here are the dates:

  • Fri. Sept. 28
  • Wed. Oct. 3
  • Wed. Oct. 10
  • Fri. Oct. 12
  • Wed. Oct. 17
  • Fri. Oct. 19
  • Wed. Oct. 24

Please sign up for as many dates as you can. We need lots of you! [Signups_Button]

Thank you for joining us last Thursday for Curriculum Night. You filled our school with such positive energy. The staff loved meeting you and walking around chatting and answering your questions. I got emails and texts from them as they arrived home, all of them commenting on how much they appreciated getting to know you. It is essential that a staff feels supported, and you did that on Thursday night. Thank you.

See you at our Ribbon Cutting on Sunday at 3! Questions? Contact… Let’s share the joy of 75 Morton!

With Respect,
