Mitchell County Primary School—Principal's Corner:

 

10, 9, 8 ,7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1-BLAST OFF!!

We are lifting off into the beginning of a new academic year!  I hope that each of you have enjoyed your summer and took the time to relax, reflect and renew.  On our "spaceship", we will have new faces, new challenges, new opportunities, new materials and even a new name-Mitchell County Primary School (MCPS).  Newness alone however, cannot produce transformation.  We must be willing to be caught up in the rebirth that is possible with each new year.  This year will be the "count down" to many new opportunities, goals, plans, strategies, programs, ideas, and initiatives.  The appearance of our environment may have changed (students, grades, and teachers) but not our soul.  Our goal is to continue to provide all students with the opportunity to reach mission possible.

Our theme for the 2016-17 school term is Blast Off Into A Learning Adventure-Destination Success!!!  As we prepare for Mission Possible, we must remember that teamwork is key!  We must be willing to give 100% and beyond to ensure that all students succeed.  Our goals for the 2016-17 school year are academic behaviors, reading, improved curriculum, and transparency.  As never before, we will focus on making our goals the core of our daily work.

Early learning is the key to success.  It is important that parents and teachers work together to build a solid foundation of learning both academically and socially for young learners.  The Mitchell County School System understands that need.  Therefore, MCPS will start an Early Learning Academy to launch 3 year olds on the path to success in school.  i look forward to a year filled with stories of great success and great learning.  The faculty and staff are ready to "lift" our early learners off to a great start!

Donna Johnson, Principal

Title I Distinguished School

On January 12, 2012 -- State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge today named 824 Georgia Title I Distinguished Schools and four Title I Distinguished Districts.

"These schools are showing that high expectations, coupled with effective educators in the building, produce outstanding student achievement," Superintendent Barge said. "I'm very pleased to recognize the educators, students and parents in these schools and school districts."

Title I schools have significant populations of students who are economically disadvantaged. These schools receive federal money to assist with the education of their students. There are two National Title I Distinguished Schools among the total 824 Georgia Title I Distinguished Schools. Title I Distinguished Schools have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) at least three years in a row.

"With the academic bar increasing each year, it is not easy to continue making AYP," Superintendent Barge said. "These 824 schools have proven that it can be done even when there are challenges."

Title I Distinguished Schools that have made AYP for three consecutive years are awarded a certificate, while those who have made AYP eight or more years receive a monetary award, paid for out of federal funds.

Congratulations to South Mitchell County Elementary School on being named a FY12 Georgia Title I Distinguished School!  This is South Mitchell County Elementary School’s 11th year as a Georgia Title I Distinguished School and the 13th consecutive year making AYP.
