A small community school on Salt Lake City’s East Side
Opened in the fall of 1956
Morningside is a “Community of Caring” school. The five values of Respect, Caring, Family, Trust and Responsibility will be emphasized with students on a daily basis. We recognize that each child is unique and important. We will work to ensure that each child at Morningside receives the best possible education. We hope parents will visit the school and find time to volunteer as often as possible.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We are here to help students see, understand, and experience the world, gain and pursue knowledge, and reach for success.
