Counselor's Corner: Test Preparation

We are approaching the end of another school term. The children have been exposed to many, many new standards. To determine how much your child has learned, he/she will be administered the Georgia Milestones/End of Grade Assessment beginning Monday, April 30, 2018 and ending Wednesday, May 2, 2018. Students in grades 3 & 4 will take this assessment. Students in the 2nd grade will also complete an End of the Year Assessment to assess their learning for the year. .......


“All young people should be prepared to think deeply and to think well so that they have the chance to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world, both today and tomorrow.” .........

A Black History Celebration at MCES

On February 23, 2018, a celebration of Black History was held at Mitchell County Elementary School, and what a celebration it was! Without fail, our students were once again simply amazing. Our second, third, and fourth grade students sang beautifully, spoke eloquently, and danced divinely. Second grade teacher, Cassandra Scott, was tasked with putting a program together and she well exceeded the expectation..........

The girls were so excited to share the pride they felt while wearing their shirts! Many people wanted to know all about the program and complimented the girls’ positive attitudes.

Ashlee Shiver

Mitchell County Elementary School Teacher of the Year
                Ashlee Shiver has been a teacher in the Mitchell County School System for four years.  She received her Bachelor’s degree from Grand Canyon University in Arizona and graduated Summa Cum Laude. She has a passion for special education and celebrates every milestone, no matter how big or small, with her students.  She supports her students through the learning process because she knows this is only the beginning of their journey.
                Mrs. Shiver insists that her mission is to “…give my children the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom. I ensure that many opportunities of learning exist beyond the walls of our classroom by teaching my children to explore different routes and methods of learning.  Learning takes place well-beyond pencil, paper, and textbooks.”
                Mrs. Shiver’s message to all is that ALL children can achieve. Children achieve and learn at different levels and have different abilities.  The most important step to ensure that all children become achievers is to have supportive and driven educators working with them. Achievement does not just come in the form of high test scores.
                She chooses to take the position that her students can and will do things beyond what most people believe they can accomplish.  This idea can be applied to all students.  She believes that “sometimes we have to go beyond the obvious when we work with children.”
