Jeannie Mayer, Elementary Principal

Welcome to another wonderful year of teaching and learning at Menahga Public School! I am excited about continuing the journey with you and our school team, to provide a quality education for your child as we strive to fulfill our school mission. The mission of District 821 is to provide opportunities for all students to become active lifelong learners with the necessary competencies, skills, understandings and values to contribute to, and succeed in a changing society. As a staff, students, and community we strive to fulfill this mission with every child, every day. You may see some changes to our mission and vision in the months coming, but our focus on reaching all learners stays at the top of the priority list.


Communication between home and school is essential. Menahga School is working hard to continue to improve in communication. Our Instant Alert System, Family Access, (in Skyward,) and Facebook are three ways you can keep up to date with what is happening. It is our goal to provide the best possible educational opportunities for your child. If you have any concerns or would like to visit about your child(ren), please do not hesitate to stop by our school. You may call the teachers or myself at 564-4141. Each teachers has his/her own telephone extension and classroom phone. You may also email us anytime. The student handbook along with staff contact information is posted on the school’s website. If you have questions about any of these communication means, please do not hesitate to ask.


One of my goals as school administrator is to ensure all students show growth in every area of learning. Our teachers are constantly learning and growing in their profession at Menahga School. Along with training in technology and assessment, our ongoing professional development will continue in the area of RtI, (Response to Interventions.) We will continue to ensure all students are growing and learning, through this process.

Honoring the past, envisioning the future and charting a course, Menahga Elementary is educating tomorrow’s future, one child at a time. Come join us, take a tour, and see the future at a glance!
