At Morning Creek Elementary we are accountable for all students learning. Our staff is dedicated to helping every child acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to be successful in school, the community, and the workplace. Working alongside our school staff is a very committed parent community. Parent and community volunteers assist in our classrooms daily and collaborate with teachers to present lessons in every classroom. Parents, teachers, and support staff cooperatively serve on many of our school’s decision making committees, i.e., School Site Council, PTA, GATE, EL, and our Elementary Foundation. Retired volunteers from Older Adult Service and Information System (OASIS) assist our students on a daily basis. More than twenty community volunteers serve our school with parents providing more than 8,000 volunteer hours per year.
When individuals visit our school, they are impressed withthe respectful behavior and eagerness to learn demonstrated by our students. Our students ascribe to what we call “The Colt Way” which focuses on six character pillars – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. “The Colt Way” serves as the overarching manner in which business is conducted on our campus as it encapsulates our values and core beliefs.
