Dear Mitchell Families, 

I am truly delighted and honored to serve as your PTA President this school year.  I’d first like to welcome back all of our incredible returning families.  To our new families, we welcome you to the Mitchell Community and your new home away from home 😊 

We are ready for an exciting year with our new Principal, Ms. Renee Best.  I have had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Best and was immediately touched by her warmth.  She is committed to carrying on our school culture as well as to bringing some fun and energizing ideas. Of course, we are all thrilled to have Mr. Moon’s continued leadership as our Assistant Principal.  After three years at Mitchell, it still amazes me how Mr. Moon greets every child by name and is genuinely invested in their success.

Mitchell Elementary is an exceptional school.  We are extremely lucky to have administration and faculty that are devoted to and passionate about the academic and emotional well being of our children.  I believe it is because of them that we have such a strong PTA with so many families eager to support their mission.   Families, staff and community members partner together to accomplish PTA programs such as the Fall Festival, RIF, and Heritage Night as well as raise funds to provide teacher reimbursements, mini grants and professional development opportunities.  

Whether you are new to Mitchell Elementary or new to PTA, we invite you to become as involved as you would like to be.  By joining the PTA, you are not committing to any sort of time requirement – we benefit from your ideas and any amount of volunteer hours.   We always welcome new members to jump right in – new people bring new ideas!  To all of our wonderful returning members, thank you for your continued support of our school.  We thrive because of each of you!

Please do not hesitate to contact me or our Board members with questions of any kind.

With warmest wishes,

Alisha Stephens
Mitchell Elementary PTA President, 2019-2020
