Valentines Day Celebration
Valentines Day parties will be on February 9th at Morton Elementary. This party will look and feel very similar to the Halloween parties in the fall. Parties will be at 2:30 p.m. and will be facilitated by classroom teachers. The Morton PTA will provide a special treat. Students can bring Valentine's Day cards to distribute at school. We also look forward to the school-wide games and activities provided through Zoom. Thank you for your support as we develop COVID-friendly celebrations for the Morton students.
Parent Teacher Conferences
We look forward to our upcoming Parent Teacher Conferences on February 8th and 11th. All conferences will be facilitated via Zoom. Teachers will communicate their Zoom link prior to your child's conference. Please don't hesitate to call the office or email your teacher if you have questions.
