My name is Kirk Kuxhausen, the principal at Mitchell Elementary in Mitchell, Nebraska.  This will be my 14th year as the elementary principal at MES.  I have been a principal for 20 years and in education for 28 years. Over my career, I have taught high school and junior high business and math, been a high school, junior high, and elementary counselor, taught business at the college level, and coached at all levels.   I have a great job and feel fortunate to do what I do.  I will do my best everyday to see that our children learn in a safe environment.   My goal is for students to want to come to school and become life-long learners. It gives me a great feeling when a student (or parent) says they love to come to school!

I will share information with parents throughout the year using this site.  If you ever need to talk to me directly, my phone number is 623-2828 or stop by the school.  My email address is:

Ms. Shelley Bradley and Mrs. Ronda Reuter are the administrative assistants at Mitchell Elementary.  Please call them at 623-2828 if you ever have questions or concerns.
