MJHS Red and White PTO

The Morton Junior High School Red and White PTO does many wonderful things for the students and staff of MJHS. Some of the various activities the Red and White PTO coordinates or assists with are:  teacher appreciation (goodies on the first Wednesday of the month), fall dance (all other dances are sponsored by student council), sports concessions (sports team parents), spaghetti supper (held during basketball season), and teacher appreciation luncheon (springtime).  


If you are interested in either chairing an activity or simply helping out, please sign up at registration or contact the office. We encourage all parents to consider an opportunity to get involved with MJHS!
