Message from the President

Dear Mitchell Families,

Welcome! It is an honor to serve as your PTA President for the 2017-2018 school year. First and foremost, I would like to welcome all of you, including our new families, back as we embark on another exciting year. Mitchell is an extraordinary school, and, as you will see, a place that truly does become a part of your family. We are fortunate to have incredible teachers and administrators who work tirelessly in order to provide the best education possible to our children and ensure they thrive.

The goal of the PTA is to support our Mitchell families and staff in any way possible. We host events throughout the year such as Meet the Teacher, Movie Night, Heritage Night and Literacy Week, in order to foster and promote our school family. We provide volunteers for activities, and we keep you apprised of school news via the weekly Bobcast Blast. We offer after-school enrichment programs to our students, and we support our teachers with funding for classroom resources and professional development, which is supported, in large part, by our annual Fun Run. In the upcoming year, we will work harder than ever on behalf of Mitchell, but we need your help!

The PTA recognizes how absolutely crucial parental involvement, that of both mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, is to our children and our school. I have often said that we can each help enrich and advance the lives of our own children and each other’s children. No matter what you do or where your passion lies, there is an opportunity for you to do something to help our kids at Mitchell. More importantly, never feel that your contribution is too small or insignificant–because it is not. You could literally be changing a child’s life by volunteering as a Bobcat Buddy or serving on the PTA. You could also be changing your own!

Please join us. With your help, we can continue to soar to new heights at Mitchell Elementary, and we can challenge our children to develop the desire, knowledge and skills necessary to reach their highest potential.

Go Bobcats!


Jeff Pegler

President, 2017-2018
