A Message from Your Principal

Dear Sterling Morton Families,      


Wow! A HUGE thank you goes out to our PTA and our parents!! The first week of May served as Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week, and we couldn’t be more thankful for all of the wonderful treats and surprises we received that week.  They were definitely a RAINBOW on a cloudy week!  I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the hard-working teachers and staff at Sterling Morton.  I continue to be amazed at the dedication that each of these caring adults has for your children.  What a wonderful week it was to celebrate them!  Once again, THANK YOU to our remarkable PTA for their generosity, and to our families who showed their appreciation of our fabulous staff!


FIELD DAY is coming up on Tuesday, May 31st, weather permitting!  Of course, we can’t pull off a fun day without our amazing volunteers!   Please remember, ONLY parents/guardians who registered and were chosen as volunteers, who have been cleared through fingerprinting. will be permitted to attend.  All volunteers will be put on a list to be checked in and given a badge.  And, as always… no younger siblings, please.  We want to help you be “ready to go” on June 1st.  We do not want to turn-away parental assistance, simply because a volunteer hasn’t been properly vetted through the fingerprinting/BCI process.  Those parents who will be assisting with Field Day events will receive a letter regarding time, stations, etc.  Stay tuned!


The annual 5th grade awards assembly is back, and in person, this year!!  It will be held on June 2nd at 10:00 AM., and will be followed up with fun activities, planned by our PTA and our 5th Grade teachers. Detailed information from the 5th grade teachers will come home soon.


Finally, as a reminder for Field Day or outdoor events the teachers may plan.   There are some great ways to protect your child from the sun: cover up, stay in the shade, when possible, wear a hat and sunglasses, and apply sunscreen!  Please be sure to put sunscreen and bug spray on at home, as our teachers are not permitted to apply these at school.


Your partnership with Sterling Morton is beyond appreciated! Should you ever have any concerns, questions, or just want to share a great idea, please don’t ever hesitate to call me at 440-257-5954 or send me an email at sturm@mentorschools.org. We value your continued support! The parents and families here make this the wonderful school that it is!


Very Sincerely Yours,

Mrs. Jacqueline I. Sturm
