Welcome to Mantachie Elementary School.  Our mission at MES is to put our students first, as they are our most precious resource. We dedicate ourselves to serving our great community and representing our school district with great pride.  Our Mustang family consistently strives to inspire each of our students to respect others, understand accountability, demonstrate integrity, serve our school and community, and strive for excellence in everything they do.  

We are proud of the value that we bring to the Mantachie community and the Itawamba County School District. MES understands that academic achievement begins with high-quality teachers in the classrooms.  Forty-eight percent of our staff holds a master’s degree or are national board certified. We all share a common goal of high-quality education and creating well-rounded citizens to build a strong community. Therefore, your help, and continued support of MES, will be vital to our future growth and success. It is a must for our students to be supported by all involved in their educational endeavors. We look forward to this journey together as we continually seek to prepare our students to be the successful leaders of tomorrow.  

Our goal is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower our students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. Schools should be a safe haven for our students to learn and grow socially and academically. The MES staff works hard in personalizing the educational experiences for each child to keep them engaged and make learning fun and meaningful. We celebrate all accomplishments as we strive to nurture confidence and build excitement within our students as they progress through their educational career

Returning to MES as a school leader with a specialist degree and 16 years of prior educational experience, I am fully vested in this amazing school. As a graduate of Mantachie Attendance Center myself, I am pleased and humbled to return to the Mustang family as your principal. I am excited to be a part of such a great school, district, and community. Together we can ensure the success of all students and make our great school even better. I look forward to this school year and the challenges and successes it will bring as we create pathways to success for all children.
