Team Mitchell is World Class!
Ready Set Go! Our new school year begins Thursday, August 15th. New school year, new adventures! To get you off on a great start, we remind you that the first bell rings at 7:50, with the tardy bell ringing at 7:55. To maximize learning time, and minimize classroom disruptions, after 7:55 parents will not be allowed to walk their child to class. Students are encouraged to have a good breakfast to stay alert for greater learnings. Students are able to go to the cafeteria to eat breakfast or they can go directly to their grade level hallway. Dismissal bells will ring as follows: PreK at 2:00, Kinder - 5th grade at 3:10. Parents, we've planned a fabulous year and we look forward to your great support!
Car Lane: For parents dropping off their students in the car lane, we ask that you pull up to the first cone along the car lane. Staff is available every morning and afternoon in order to help your child safely exit and enter your vehicle. For the safety of all students, vehicles should not drop students from the parking lot. If parents prefer to park and walk your child in, please be sure to use our crosswalks. Mitchell has another entrance at the back of the school for buses. This driveway is for staff and buses only. School staff assist in supervising bus arrivals in the morning and bus dismissals in the afternoon. Any questions regarding bus routes or student bus tags, please contact the transportation department at 512-943-5126. Thanks for your assistance in keeping our students safe during arrival and departure.
Mitchell staff recognizes that parents' schedules change hourly. As a result your child may be going home a different way. To assure that students get home as planned, we ask that either a note be sent to the teacher or call the front office before 2:00 for changes. Transportation changes are documented in the front office and teachers are then notified. Our policy regarding field trips is that students are to depart and return to campus on the school bus. These procedures ensure the safety and security of all students. We appreciate your support.
Attendance Counts! In our effort to protect instructional time for our students, we've started tracking student attendance. Here are Mitchell's MARCH attendance results: Pre-K - 87.55%, Kinder - 86.28%, 1st Grade - 88.66%, 2nd Grade - 87.50%, 3rd Grade - 89.94%, 4th Grade - 91.82%, (best grade attendance) and 5th Grade with a 90.94% . The class with the best attendance in March was Mrs. Lemoine's 1st Grade class with a 94.08% attendance. Congratulations to Mrs. Lemoine and her students!! First Grade Rocks!
