I along with the faculty and staff would like to welcome you and your family to Morton Elementary School. We are very excited about the challenges ahead and the opportunity to work with your child. We believe you will enjoy meeting this challenge with us as we continue to strive for Excellence in Education.
As our students face their future, it is evident that teachers must prepare them for an unknown tomorrow. Just a few years ago, computers, the world-wide web, cell phones, and the ability to text message someone across the world was only seen in science fiction. Today, those technologies are just a small part of this new Digital Age. As the world continues to change around us, it is obvious that this digital world puts new demands on today's educators. Classrooms must embrace this technology and the ways in which it can be used to prepare our students for life and jobs of the 21st century.
It is our focus at Morton Elementary to provide teachers with the tools and strategies they need to more effectively navigate today's classroom to meet the realities of the 21st century. Students must be technologically literate and globally competitive to succeed in life and employment opportunities of tomorrow. Students must not only become competent in the use of technology, they also must be able to apply their skills to practical situations that are relevant and aligned with real world applications.
Together, we look forward to making your child's learning experience a successful one and leading them into this new era of endless possibilities. Morton Elementary is committed to Excellence in Teaching & Learning .
