    I loved going to school when I was a kid. I have to tell you that I think I would have loved it more if it had been like Morningside Elementary in New Braunfels. Great teachers fun activities encouragement of students requesting parent involvement are just a few of the wonderful things I can say about this school. It is clean the walls are decorated with in the know information i.e. don't be a bully and upcoming events. My grandson loves it there. Because I pick him up from school frequently it is wonderful to see a staff that is really smiling not because the kids are going home they are happy. The kids love them they love the kids. A good feeling for everyone.

    My boys attend Morningside - Kindergarten and 3rd grade - and I have been very impressed. Principal Jodi Cox Assistant Principal Kevin Howell Counselor Mary Mikaelian and the teachers we have encountered are stellar! Mary Cuellar who heads up their Parent Resource Center has done a lot to help the Spanish speaking parents be more involved as well. We are also enjoying the brand new building - really nice layout and well organized!
