The mission statement at Tippecanoe Valley reads, “Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation is committed to student success through the development of character, leadership, and literacy.”  My hope is that this year has been a successful one in these areas so far for your children.   As a principal, it is always a pleasure to walk through classrooms and see the personal growth in your children.

In my experience, I have found that when you have students who work hard to learn and grow, when you have a talented and committed staff, when you have parents who are active in their children’s lives, and when you have a supportive community your school becomes successful.   Parents, thank you for the hard work you put into your children and for your continued support of our school.  I hope that you continue to find Mentone Elementary School to be good partners in helping your children develop attributes that will help them to be successful both inside and outside of school.
