Mr. Mead, Elementary Principal

It is with great excitement that we prepare for the challenges of the 2023-24 school year. I am excited that the staff and students are in the building all working together for the betterment of our students and community. I am looking forward to a great year and being a part of your child’s education. We have set our goals high and will work diligently to obtain those goals, which ultimately would make us a school of educational excellence.

The 2022-2023 school was a great success with our most recent State Report Card rating us a 5 star school district.  We are very proud of our students, staff and parents for helping us reach this goal.  There were only two school districts in Darke County who reached the 5 star status.  We will once again strive to maintain this 5 star status for the 2023-2024 school year.  

Once again Tri-Village Elementary has qualified for federal funds and will remain a School Wide Title I Program based on our free and reduced lunch population. This has allowed us to hire a number of additional qualified teachers who will be working closely with our children. They will be used in multiple ways within our classrooms. They will be co-teaching with our regular education classroom teachers serving the entire classroom population, working with our students in small groups, and working one-on-one with students who need some extra support within the classroom setting. This program is very beneficial for the educational development of our students. It is our goal to shrink the achievement gap of our students and this program is a valuable tool which will assist us in obtaining that goal.

It is a very challenging, but exciting time in education. Tri-Village Elementary will continue to overcome those challenges, build upon our recent successes, and strive for excellence in the classroom. Rest assured you have a dedicated, hard working, and knowledgeable staff of educators making data driven decisions to best educate your child.

Lastly, I encourage you to stay involved in your child’s education. Converse with them about their day at school and ask them what they learned on a daily basis. This will only reinforce the importance of their education. You, as a parent, are a very important piece to your child’s education. Please take the time to get to know what your child is learning at Tri-Village Elementary School.
