Principal's Message

Dear AJ Mitchell Hawk Families,

The staff and I extend a warm welcome to you and your children to AJ Mitchell.  Our priority is happy, healthy, successful children. We know that working together will make our students SOAR!

We continue to focus on IMPROVING READING COMPREHENSION for all Hawks.  Teachers and staff have worked on what to do to keep working on improved instruction over the summer and we are ready to make this a bright school year. 

We will work hard to build strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, using data to inform instruction, implementing effective instructional practices and providing exciting enrichment opportunities for all students. 

During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of AJ Mitchell the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be successful now and in their future.  As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, or call to make an appointment, to get to know me personally, discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet. 

School starts on Aug. 7, 7:45am.  Our Open House is Tuesday, August 13, starting at 5:30pm.  Be sure to come to learn all about what will be happening in your child’s class this school year and get ideas on how to help your child at home.  

Please look at our website for information on schedules, policies and procedures.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school. You can also see our Facebook page, AJ Mitchell Elementary School Hawks @ajmhawks for updates and news.  

I thank you for entrusting your children to us.  I take this responsibility seriously and know that all our staff is excited to make your child SOAR!
