• Welcome to the Mimosa Elementary School website, home of the Manatees.  I am Ariane Holcombe, the principal of Mimosa.  Whether you are a current student or family, prospective student or family, or someone who is just interested in gathering information about MES, we hope that you will find our site informative and helpful.

    Our goal is to create a positive enviroment where students are comfortable in taking academic risks and working together for a common purpose.  Where families and community partners feel valued and welcomed. We believe in building students up, allowing them to reach their full potential, and preparing them to be well rounded citizens. 

    I am so proud to be the principal of this school that lives the mission of putting the needs of students first.  I am honored to work with such a wonderful group of staff, families and students.  I came to MES in 2004 as a teacher, so it is a very familiar and much-loved place for me.  I look forward to the continued growth of this community and our collective committment of offering a variety of learning opportunities, events and experiences to our students.  I know that this committment is honored through our collaborative work with parents and the community.  Please feel free to reach out at any time with any questions you may have. 

    We appreciate your support!
