Principal’s Message

  • Dear Morton Families,

    Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year! As most of you know, I am Susan Sanchez and am so privileged and excited to be leading Morton as Principal this academic year. I am heading into my eighth year as a little Bulldog here at Morton. The families and children are amazing and unique. I have fallen in love with the North/Westside. 

    The last couple of years with the global pandemic has continued to show how strong our community is.  We are ready to have all of our students back in August.  It is going to be an awesome year.  We are in unprecedented times.  Our staff and families have handled it all with such strength and dignity; it makes me so proud to call Morton my home.

    Along with my dedicated staff, we will continue to work with the scholars at Morton preparing them for an amazing future that they deserve. I know that we have had to tread in some unfamiliar and difficult times together at the end of last year. We will continue to work through each adventure and challenge as it presents itself. It is Team Morton’s mission to create a rigorous learning environment through high expectations for every single student. We will create college-bound and workforce ready, successful contributing citizens who leave us with the excellent skills needed to be able to achieve their highest aspirations. I anticipate another year filled with many successes, as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Morton Elementary School.

    Team Morton continues to strive for that excellence maintaining our performance rating on the State Report Card. 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 Morton. 

    Please be sure to attain your parent portal access from the front office, if you do not already have access to Infinite Campus. Through Infinite Campus, you can check grades and attendance. Looking forward to a fantastic year.
