Welcome to Mitchell School!
Dear Friends and Families of Mitchell,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at the William Mitchell Elementary School.Â I hope you are as excited as I am to begin a new year and to welcome our incoming kindergarteners (the class of 2029!) to the joy of the Mitchell experience.Â I am very honored to have been appointed to lead the Mitchell community.Â In this first year I believe I will have quite a bit in common with the incoming kindergarteners as we learn about this community, enjoy its many traditions, and benefit from its many strengths.
Although I have been at Mitchell only a short time, I can attest to the thought and care that our teachers and staff put into educating your children each and every day.Â This is a group of people that believe that who you are as a person is at least as important as what you achieve academically.Â To that end, we as a community strive to live out our core value of respect:
Recognize your own worth and the worth of others
Encourage each other in work and play
Empathize with others
Care, share, and be fair
Try your best
The degree to which we are successful depends in no small part on a strong home-school partnership â€“ in other words, you.Â I am truly looking forward to getting to know your children and partnering with you on what will no doubt be a fantastic year of learning and growth!
