Dear Parents,

The online version of this newsletter may be found at

Please join me in congratulating Mitchell’s May Teacher of the Month, our fifth grade Science teacher- Mrs. Julie Menard, and this week’s Mitchell Staff Member of the week, our Math interventionist- Mrs. Lisa Paholek.

Our spirit days this week are as follows:
Tuesday, May 3rd: Class Colors Day: Each class has chosen its own color to wear on Tuesdays.
Wednesday, May 4th: Don’t Sweat the STAAR Day: Students may wear sweatpants and athletic clothing. Remember, no skin tight clothing, spandex, or tights.
Thursday, May 5th: Camo Day: Show off your camouflage.
Friday, May 6th: Show Your Mitchell Spirit Day: Wear your school t-shirt/school colors.

We have our Grand Transition Night this Thursday, May 5th, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We will have two sessions with a five minute transition in between. The PTO will also have a brief meeting prior to the event at 5:45 p.m. in the cafeteria. We will have signs posted regarding where to go to meet with each grade level. There is a separate transition night for incoming kindergarteners on May 19th at 5:30 p.m.

Remember that our third, fourth, and fifth graders will be taking STAAR tests May 9th through 11th. Please plan any appointments and time out of school between now and May 11th for after school hours so that we can maximize instructional time for our students. Every day of the year is important, but our teachers are even more focused on revisiting key content during these last few weeks before testing.

Please see the calendar below for additional upcoming events and thank you for your continued support of your child's education.
