Recycle-Bowl Contest
Each year Morton Middle participates in the Recycle-Bowl Contest.
As a school and a community we recycle metal.  Not only does it help to reduce waste, but we also earn funds for our school.  What can you do to help?  Begin taking your metal waste (even aluminum cans!) to the following recycle centers:
Wise Recycling
203 Lisle Industrial Ave, Lexington, KY 40511
Or
Baker Iron and Metal
740 Rockcastle St, Lexington, KY 40505
When you take your metal waste to one of the two above recycling centers tell them you are with Morton Middle School, and they will give you a receipt.  Have your child bring the receipt to school and turn in to Ms. Trisko.  It is that easy!  Contest runs through November 15th!  Thank you for your support.

We will no longer need to utilize the Kroger gift card system. It's that simple!
