A Message from our Principal

Dear A.J. Mitchell Families,

During the month of February, students will take the Galileo assessment, and our English Language Learners will take the AZELLA. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and comes to school in time for breakfast. Remember that we serve free breakfast and lunch to all students. We encourage you to take advantage of this amazing benefit.

Please mark your calendars for the following dates: 

  • We have early release at 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday, February 25, 2015.
  • Get your smiles ready! Spring pictures are on Friday, February 27, 2015.
