Morton is on the move!

Thomas G. Morton

 Dear Parents, Families and Caregivers,

After 38 years working with Philadelphia children and teenagers I am retiring to spend time with my family. I have loved  being Morton School's principal and treasure the time I spent with my Mortonites.

Mr. Aaron Starke is being appointed as the new principal and I know you will give him a warm Morton welcome.

I wish everyone a safe and joyous summer!

Warmest regards,
Zena Sacks
