Principal's Message

Dear Mitchell County Elementary Families,


Welcome back to the nest Eagles!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer break. It is an honor to serve this community as principal of Mitchell County Elementary School for a third year.  The 2022-2023 school year promises to be an eventful year, filled with opportunities to grow and learn.
Our faculty and staff have worked hard during the break to ensure a safe, inviting, and enriching learning environment for all our students. Our team is excited and committed to helping each student reach their full potential and strive for greatness. Our theme this year is "Be the Change!" With all the changes and challenges that COVID presented to the Mitchell County Eagle family, we look forward to striving to be the change that allows all students to learn at high levels and reach their dreams. We want the best for your students, and will work tirelessly with them and you, our families, to ensure that our standards are high and that our students meet these standards.
With a focus on increasing all students' reading achievement and math skills, it is our desire that all students will be able to access all opportunities that come their way in the years to come due to the solid base that is built at MCES in the 2022-2023 school year. We recognize that our families are an integral part of student success and we welcome your input. We will work hard to build strong educational partnerships with you.
By working together, we can help each child achieve an excellent education in a safe and positive environment.


Together we can! Together we will!


Educationally yours,


Stephanie Gagnon, PhD
