Ms. Tracy Mitchell
I am originally from Pennsylvania. There I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from Slippery Rock University. I began my teaching career in Richmond, Indiana in a specialized program educating students with emotional and behavioral disabilities. While there I earned my Masters in Special Education from Ball State University. After 8 years, I decided to move south. I came to East Clayton in 2005. I have taught 3rd grade for 10 years and 4th grade for 4 years.
We will be having our first PTA sponsored spirit night at Roma's Pizza Shop on Tuesday, September 3rd. Our school will earn 10% of procedes all day long. Please dine at Romas & support our school.
Our third grade students will take their MAP Reading test on Tuesday and they will take the MAP Math test on Thursday this week. Both of these assessments will be taken online.
Student's Personal Headphones
Students were asked to bring in their own personal earbuds or headphones for use during the school day. This was on the third grade supply list. There are several programs that we use as well as a couple of assessments which require the children to utilize headphones. Last week we tried to do an assessment and multiple children did not have their headphones. Unfortunately, I do not have extra headphones for all who needed them. The few that I do possess are not in the best working condition. Please help us by assiting your student with bringing their headphones to school for use in school. Thank you so much for your help with this.
