Administrative history / Biographical sketch

Morningview School District was established in 1917 in the area south east of Sexsmith. The first school opened in 1918 in a vacant log house, but closed during the flu season that winter so the school could be used as a hospital. Later a school , barn and teacherage were built on the school site. In 1954, the school was closed and the students were vanned to Sexsmith. After this, there was some discussion on forming a separate school district in the Morningside area, but the school was built at Sexsmith instead. Teachers at Morningview included Mr. Stitts, Catharine Roach, Ruth Valentine, Temple Crawford, Lorna McKernan, Dorothy Morton, Mrs. Ozee, Miss Hennig, Miss Hill, Lorna McFarlane, Alice Schwan, Olive Arnegard, Clare Edlund, Miss Fisher, Martha Gudlaugson, Dorothy Kynaston, Mrs. Cooke, Mrs. J. Tracy, Elna Morgan and Mrs. Grumbly.
