Dear Parents,

The online version of this newsletter may be found at

Please join me in congratulating Mitchell’s Staff Members of the week- our assistant principal Mrs. Amanda Jackson and our counselor Mrs. Becky Skelton.

Thank you again to Gunnery Sergeant Cheatham for stopping by on Monday morning and sharing some encouraging words with our students just prior to STAAR testing.

We have decided to keep the positive momentum we built up the last two weeks going during STAAR testing and will continue with spirit days this week.
Tuesday, May 10th will be Class Colors Day. Third, fourth, and some fifth graders will take their STAAR reading tests.
Wednesday, May 11th will be Don’t Sweat the STAAR Day. Fifth graders will take their STAAR science tests.
Thursday, May 12th will be STAAR Superhero Day to celebrate our victory over the STAAR tests.
Friday, May 13th will be our normal Mitchell Spirit Day. The PTO’s End of the Year Pool Party is that night from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Adamson Lagoon.

Remember that our third, fourth, and fifth graders are not available to eat lunch with their parents on days that they are taking STAAR tests. Please plan any appointments and time out of school between now and May 11th for after school hours.

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