Students at Mitchell Elementary School can participate in a variety of co-curricular activities designed to enrich their experiences both in and out of the classroom.
Students have the opportunity to join the School Orchestra and the Chorus beginning in 3rd grade. Students are additionally offered the opportunity to join the school Band as 4th graders. Students from Mitchell and Bethlehem Schools showcase their skills with performances in the winter and spring at Woodbury Middle School. Chorus members also have an opportunity to participate in a Ring and Sing in conjunction with the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Mitchell Students have also had the opportunity to stage a play during the spring.
Each year, 5th graders at both schools come together for several team building opportunities to ease the transition for them into Woodbury Middle School in the fall. They also participate together for the DARE. program where they learn good decision-making skills to help those lead responsible lives and enhance safety in school and their communities.
Mitchell School also has its own Student Council. Four elected 5th grade students are chosen by their 3rd, 4th and 5th grade peers each November. Non-elected upper grade level students who wish to attend meetings as class liaisons are welcomed. Members plan and participate in community service projects in an around the school as well as in the Woodbury community.
