Each LC has its own hall and within that hall are lockers. Students can go to their lockers at designated times throughout the day, so they do not have to carry their backpacks. You can purchase a locker shelf to make more room in their lockers for their belongings. Students do not have to buy a combination lock.
At meet the teacher, the kids can practice opening their lockers.
The DOT is the acronym for Drop Off Table. Parents may drop off items their students need (or forgot), i.e. an instrument, poster board for a project, or lunch.
If you leave it at the DOT, "Put a name on it".
At Mitchell Intermediate, students are placed in Learning Communities (LC), which consist of approximately 100-125 students in 4-6 homerooms. Each LC has a math teacher, science teacher, and two language arts/social studies teachers. Students remain in their LC for both 5th and 6th grade with the same students and teachers.
There are 12 LCs. What LC is your child in?
A BOB is the acronym for Blue Organizational Binder. This is the binder that travels back and forth, from home to school and helps students stay organized. In this binder, students deliver announcements and any information to parents and/or place their homework, notes to teachers, etc. for delivery to school. The PTO provides a BOB for every student.

Twice a year, the PTO coordinates with each grade and holds what we call a "student social". There are games, prizes and food. Socials are held in the fall and spring. Each LC asks for donations of specified items based on the LC's booth. This is an excellent opportunity for all LCs to mix it up and socialize more than during specials and their staggered lunch and recess times.
All proceeds from the socials go directly back to the school.
Yes, there will be t-shirts and spirit wear items for sale during meet the teacher night. Orders placed before July deadline will be available for PICK UP at Meet the Teacher or the First Week of School. Check out the spirit store link to order after this date.
No, at Mitchell it's assumed your child knows on a daily basis how they're getting home. A note is not required if they are riding the bus one day or going by car or bike the next.
Lockers are exciting and stressful at the same time. Get a combination lock at home and let your child practice using it over the summer. Understanding the basic mechanics of how a combination lock works will give them an edge and build their confidence when they get to Mitchell.
Remember: at meet the teacher, the kids can practice opening their lockers.
At Meet the Teacher 5th graders go to the Commons to check in. At that time, they will be handed a form with their assigned LC.
If your Mustang's hoodie disappears, the PTO may have it. Each Friday, the clothing, backpacks, lunch boxes, etc. left behind are displayed on the stage during lunch hour. Display racks are shockingly full every month, and items not claimed will be donated to a local charity at the end of the semester.
