Morton Students Pledge 60 Hours of Service!
On April 2, Morton students learned from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth students the importance of Community Service. As part of the Morton 60 SouthCoast Serves initiative, UMass students shared their personal stories of service. All Morton students were encouraged to take the challenge to serve 60 hours of community service and make a positive impact in the community. Service learning is a key component of Morton’s extended learning day. Service learning takes the lesson out of the classroom and brings it into the community and empowers the student to become an agent of change on an issue that really matters to them.
