Morton ISD opened its doors in 1924 and over the past 97 years, the school made many contributions to the local community and the students often take part in charitable activities to assist various community efforts.  Despite the many restrictions and changes caused this year due to COVID-19, the students of Morton ISD did not falter on this time-honored tradition of supporting their community.

Through the combined efforts of several student groups this year, the student body of Morton ISD has provided work and assistance to the local Lion’s Club, Caleb’s Closet, the Food Bank, and Alcove Care, to name a few.  Student officers and members of the National Honor Society, FCCLA, FFA, and Student Council have been the leaders in these charitable efforts.
