What We Do............

The Morton Middle School Panther Pack inspires and enables all young people,
 especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, healthy and caring citizens.       

The Panther Pack program  is not just a safe place for kids to go after school.   We provide diverse activities that meet the interests of youth, all of which promote healthy development and education that help kids grow into positive and caring adults. The 5 Core Program areas outlined below engage young people in activities with adults, peers and family members that enable them to develop self-esteem and to reach their full potential.

Special Programs and Services: We are constantly seeking out new, enriching activities for our kids to participate in. From literacy support to driving safety.

Sports/Fitness and Recreation:
Our athletics programming develops fitness, positive use of leisure time, skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment and social skills.

The Arts: Our art programs help youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.

Health and Life Skills: Our health & life skills programming develops young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

Education and Career Development:
Our academic programming enables youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, set goals, explore careers, prepare for employment and embrace technology to achieve success in a career.

Character and Leadership Development:
Our Character & Leadership focus empowers youth to support and influence the school and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image and good character, participate in the democratic process, and respect their and others’ cultural identities.

Greetings Morton Panther Pack!




"COLD WEATHER INFO*


Friendly reminder it is cold outside so please dress warm for the walk home!

Panther Pack is trying to cut down on kids hanging out at the south doors. Please make arrangements to come inside to get your students as we will no longer allow students to sit at the south doors. Students will either be in the gym or the cafeteria toward the end of panther pack hours.

POWER HOUR (Homework /Tutoring time):
Students must come prepared to do homework. Panther Pack does provide tutors (certified teachers) for every grade level and subject. All students in Panther Pack are expected to participate in this program (there is not talking at this time). We monitor grades and any student violating the "Power Hour" tutorial time may be suspended from the Panther Pack until further notice.
