It's been a fantastic first month of school together! Students have been learning various routines quickly and enjoying their time learning in the classroom. Here's an update on what's been going on in our classroom.
Being a Learning Community
Please sign-up to meet with me in October! I sent an email to you all, so look for the sign-up information there.
Late Morning Arrivals
We are noticing many students who are arriving late to school. As a reminder, the bell rings at 8:56. Please make sure children are dropped off for school on time. Late student arrivals cause disruptions to classrooms when kids and teachers have already begun their day of learning. Please do your very best to have your children to school on time.
Mitchell PTO Fun Run
The fun run is coming up on Friday, October 6! This is a PTO sponsored event that promotes wellness and exercise while raising funds for our school. The PTO is still looking for parent volunteers to help with the fun run! You can find contact information HERE.
Mitchell School Picture Day
Picture day is scheduled for Thursday, October 5th here at school. An informational flyer and order form came home in backpacks this week. You can also order pictures online by visiting mylifetouch.com with ID LM457098Y0.
Mitchell Food Distribution
All Mitchell and Scarlett families are welcome to pick up free food at Mitchell School on Saturday, October 7 at 9:30 AM. If you have registered before, you will not need to register again. If you have not previously registered, it is a short process.
This is available to all Mitchell and Scarlett families on the first Saturday of each month. Thank you to Community Action Network and Food Gatherers for their partnership in bringing this service to our community.
Parking at Mitchell
There are some parking spots available in front of Mitchell School. Additional parking is available in the Scarlett parking lot behind Mitchell School. Please DO NOT park in the front circle drive - ever. Parked cars create a traffic flow problem that can cause unsafe situations.
If you need to enter the building, please park in a parking space in one of our lots. Cars will line up on Lorraine as an entrance line into Mitchell and should not be parked on Lorraine. If you’d like to park, you can park in the Scarlett lot in the back or in the front Mitchell lot. Please know that I’m working to get a second call box on the back door so we can buzz parents in securely through the back door, as well as the front door. Thank you for your help!
Welcome Back to Rec & Ed AFTER School Classes!
Once again, AAPS Rec & Ed is offering several afterschool classes focused on fun, learning, and movement at our building this fall. Sign up now to make sure your child gets a space. The titles below go directly to registration. For more information, visit Rec & Ed after school classes. Scholarship information is available here.
Mighty Mustangs Math
The Mighty Mustangs Math program is an after school math intervention program focused on developing mathematical skills in students. This program runs in the fall for students in 3rd through 5th grade. Parents of students who demonstrate and need and could benefit from this intervention will be contacted.
On Friday’s at Mitchell School all children are encouraged to wear their favorite team shirts or their favorite colors!
