Principal's Message

Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year! My name is Carrie Bostick and I am the new principal of Mitchell Elementary. I am honored to join the Mitchell team of hard-working students, dedicated teachers and staff, and a supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to work alongside you to support your students.

Just to share a little about myself, I have been a part of GGUSD for over 20 years. I began my career as a teacher at Sunnyside Elementary, where I taught for 15 years before moving to the district office. For the next five years, I worked as a Teacher on Special Assignment, supporting curriculum and instruction for elementary. Most recently, I served as the assistant principal for Bryant Elementary Arts Academy. I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Mitchell and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure the success of all students.

I am pleased to welcome all students back for five days of full-day in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year! All GGUSD schools have a variety of health and safety protocols in place to provide a safe learning environment for your child. As we continue to receive safety guidelines and updates from the CDPH and the District Office, information will be shared with you on the ParentSquare app. ParentSquare is our main communication tool, so please be sure that you have downloaded the app and are receiving all of our school and district communication. If you have any questions or issues with ParentSquare, please feel free to call us here at the office at (714)663-6131.

Like all of our wonderful schools in GGUSD, we will continue to focus on our District Goals: Academic Skills + Personal Skills = Lifelong Success! Mitchell is proud to continue our work as an Apple School with a unique one-to-one iPad Program. Student learning is enhanced as teachers plan rigorous, standards-based lessons while integrating technology in order to better prepare our students for the 21st century. In addition to a rich academic program, Mitchell continues our work with PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) and a monthly focus on character traits. We are committed to supporting the socio-emotional well-being of our students, especially during these challenging times. 

I look forward to working with you. Together, our students will continue to achieve academic and personal success!

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Carrie Bostick

Principal
