Mitchell School Principal
Hello Mitchell Families!
It won't be long now and the halls will be full with new and returning students for the 2018-19 school year. I hope you all had a wonderful and safe summer. My name is Lisa Yarbrough and I am the Principal at Mitchell. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at Meet the Teacher Night on August 7th from 6:00-7:00pm.
We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. We realize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child's education. As partner's we share the responsibility for our children's success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child's learning by ensuring that he/she:
- Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day's learning experience.
- Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
- Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
- Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
- Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school.
Please consider joining our school as a volunteer to help students with our Rocket Math Club. Rocket Math is a program to help studetns improve their multiplication skills by taking timed math tests weekly and recording their own progress as they go. The first semester will be for Fourth Grade students and second semester for Third Grade students. If you are interested in helping with this please call me. The program will start September 7, 2018 and will run until December 14, 2018. The program starts at 8:10am and ends at 8:40am.
As always, feel free to contact me anytime! Looking forward to meeting all of you!
