Welcome to Morton Gingerwood School!
I am Camille Hogan, building principal. I have had the pleasure of working in District 145 for the last six years. Here we educate roughly 270 first and second grade students with passion and dedication. We value the trust you place in us as you send your children to our school. I enjoy your children very much. They are full of spirit and curiosity and their laughter is infectious.
At MGS, we believe that all students are capable of achieving. We do all that we can to make sure that academics in the classroom are engaging and challenging so that children are highly motivated to grow as learners. We also strive to support the social and emotional needs of our young students. Doing so successfully necessitates that we work in tandem with our parents. We organize many special events throughout the year and we invite you to sign up to volunteer at one of them. We appreciate when you set aside time each evening to work with your child to reinforce important skills. Do not hesitate to call or email us whenever you have a question or a concern about anything. Good communication between school and home is essential in order to ensure that all children experience success. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
