Welcome to W.E. Mitchell Middle School. This is going to be a year like none other and we are determined to make it a great one! For those of you who are new to our school, Mitchell is an Authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School partnering with Cordova High School. Under the Academics tab you can find more information about IB/MYP. In addition to our core classes: Language and Literature, Mathematics, Sciences, Individuals and Societies, and Physical and Health Education, we are offering some new and exciting ones for all of our students. Students are able to explore additional subjects including Spanish, Visual Arts, Media Arts and Performing Arts (Band, Orchestra, Choir).
School resumes on August 12 on a Distance Learning Schedule.
Mitchell has aligned our bell schedule with all FCUSD middle schools. Beginning this year, we have a 6-period day with an optional zero period. When it is safe to return, school will begin at 8:25am and dismiss at 3:00pm every day except Thursday which is our early release day. Students are dismissed at 1:35pm EVERY Thursday. Zero period is every day from 7:25-8:15am. We have seven (7) minimum days in which students are released at 12:35pm and four (4) additional 1:35pm early release days before the end of each quarter for teachers to put in progress/final grades. Please look at the 2020-2021 school calendar for those dates.
We look forward to an exciting year of growing and learning together. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office. We will be happy to assist you.
