Students might say that going to the lock-in is “a lot of bull,” and this year, they’d be right.   The lock-in is Tuesday, November 21, and, for the first time, it will feature a mechanical bull, so students can test their skills at bull riding. 

It starts at 10 pm and ends at 6 am on Wednesday 21. The purpose of having a school lock-in is for students can have fun with their friends. For the first time during the lock-in, there will be a Tie-dye party for the class of 2019. You will receive a tie-dye kit which includes a shirt, rubber bands, and gloves. Many activities are going to be available; for example, every gym will be open:  students can play basketball, volleyball, soccer and more sports. Morton East will also provide food and snacks during the lock-in. SAALT is a club at Morton East who is in charge of organizing the lock in every year since 2011.  

Many Morton East students enjoy going to the school’s lock-in every year with their friends.  

“This is my second year attending a school lock-in, I have a lot of fun because I get more time to spend with my friends after all the hard  week of school work and stress I have from my classes,” said junior Bianca Navarrete.

The lock consist of many activities that students can participate all night.

“Were going to have multiple fun activities like meltdown game, mechanic bull, and karaoke,” said teacher Mr. Sujak.

Morton’s lock in is a night that is brought to Morton East students so they can have a good night.  

We want Morton East students to have fun and enjoy themselves before going to thanksgiving break,” said teacher Mr. Sujak.
