Welcome To Morton Junior High School Thanks for Visiting



Published: August 18, 2016

We are excited for another Help-a-thon at MJHS.  It is our hope that this Help-a-thon will not just raise funds for MJHS but more importantly give students an oppurtunity to serve in the community and grow as individuals. 


What is it?

The MJHS Help-a-thon is similar to a walk-a-thon; however, instead of collecting pledges to walk, students will seek donors to sponsor their involvement in a service project within our community.


When is it?

The Help-a-thon Community Day will be October 4 (rain date -October 5) 

Additional projects on will be on October 25 for students who collect at least $200.


Who will participate in the service projects?

450+ MJHS students and staff members will participate in a service project.


What organizations will benefit from the students’ volunteerism?

Midwest Food Bank                      Restmor Nursing Home
