We are excited to launch the 11th year of Morningside Elementary! Throughout this school year, staff and students will have the opportunity to learn, practice, and incorporate leadership skills from Steven Covey’s book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The 7 habits focus on the development of the whole child. It is our goal to find and develop the leader within every child that enters our door. We will be teaching the 7 habits to students, while incorporating ways for your child to use these habits in their everyday life. We want this program to be a united effort, and we can’t do that without you.
Morningside is a wonderful school that has extremely dedicated teachers, exceptional students and committed parents.
I believe in establishing high expectations academically and socially for our students, partnering with parents and community and creating high levels of collaboration amongst staff that result in student success.
My door is always open and I welcome your comments, feedback and ideas!
