Back to School

Greetings and welcome back to school for 2017-2018! The faculty and staff are looking forward to a great year as we build on our successes from last year in our accreditation and our continued goals for student success. Our first day of school will be August 28th for grades 1-5, Kindergarten will start on September 5th and Sure Start on September 13th.

Welcome to Joan K Mendel Elementary School!

Our goal is to provide current and relevant information about our school to the military and civilian families we serve today and those we look forward to welcoming to our campus in the future.
