The Henry T. Mitchell Elementary Foundation was established as a not-for-profit organization in 2004, to develop a long-range improvement plan for our school. The Foundation has partnered with the PTA, the School Administration and the District to make capital improvements, purchase equipment and supplies, and to provide support to faculty and staff. With all partners working together, the Foundation has been able to fund and support the following:
- A covered play court and pavilion, with new basketball hoops
- New playground equipment with rubberized play surface
- Installation of commemorative pavers in the Kindergarten wing, with new garden benches
- Purchased 5 Mimio boards
- Continued maintenance and replenishment of mulch to our playground area, as well as landscaping for the covered court
- Enhanced the perimeter fence with brick columns and steel fencing
- Purchased 20 Smart Boards in collaboration with PTA and Administration
- Continue to supplement the salary for the Strings
In order to continue with our objectives, we need the support of our Mitchell families. The Foundation raises funds for all projects and programs through various means, most notably our fall mailer which will be sent to parents in October and our fundraiser event which will be held this spring.The Foundation welcomes your involvement! By working together, we can continue to support and enhance the educational opportunities for our students. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30 a.m. in the school’s conference room.
