Principal's Message

  • Mimosa Park Elementary School Family,

    It was so wonderful to be able to welcome all of our MPE families back to another exciting school year. It was a great feeling to see our students enter the building on their first day and see the big smiles on their faces. MPE is ready to continue to make great things happen this year. We are ready to build upon our successes and implement plans to increase student achievement. 

    The teachers and support staff at Mimosa Park are ready to provide all students with instruction that will create the foundation for them to be successful in their future academic challenges. We are very proud of our instructional programs, our safe, positive school environment, and the excellent progress demonstrated by our Mimosa Park students.

    Our faculty has high expectations for all students and strives to make GOOD…GREAT! These expectations for excellence in performance and classroom behavior can be realized through a united effort on the part of students, the school faculty and parents. With this in mind, we are focusing on the improvement of teaching and learning of rigorous standards in literacy and mathematics through our core curriculum. Over the next few weeks, grade levels will be using flexible grouping as a means to meet the individual needs of all students. Students may transition to a different teacher’s class for the ELA block to review instruction. The teacher will use our core curriculum to teach, assess and provide support. The students will return to their class after small group time. We are positive that this method will support our students and create opportunities for targeted instruction and growth. Thank you for supporting us as we meet the needs of all students. 

    As your child’s safety is our main priority, it is imperative that you keep us updated with your contact information so that in the event of an emergency, we can contact you. It is also important to have parents understand the direction the school is taking and work with us as partners in the education of each child. Your participation in activities at Mimosa Park Elementary is welcomed and encouraged. If you didn’t sign up at Open House to be a member of our PTO, be sure to email PTO at if interested in joining this wonderful organization. 

    Ongoing and effective communication with parents and students is a very important aspect of a successful school. Feel free to call, email, or arrange for in-person conferences when needed. Pairing our top quality educators with a group of supportive, interested parents will ensure a rewarding year for your child and prepare each and every one to meet his/her full potential!


    As always, thank you for your support and encouragement. We are looking forward to an amazing school year.
