Principal's Message

Elementary Principal/Instructional Coach

Elementary Principal Debbie Newton

Welcome to Mimi Farley Elementary School,

The staff at Mimi Farley Elementary School welcomes your student and your family to the new school year.  We are united and committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student.  We firmly believe that the partnership between the Cal Farley’s Organization, parents, and  our staff is necessary for the success of all of our students.  Learning is not an easy process! It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by everyone from the teacher, the parent, to the principal, but most importantly the student.

At MFE, instruction is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.  We value and challenge each student and provide opportunities for academic success.  We also attempt to balance academic successes with the mission of the Cal Farley’s organization, individual families, and developing the whole child. Positive attitudes towards school and long term changes in behavior are goals  and we are working to teach students to both respect themselves and others.  We work to give them opportunities to develop and demonstrate self-discipline and responsibility.    We also focus on the district’s adopted 21st Century Skills, which include equipping our students to be critical thinkers, communicators, collaborators and creators. 

Research and experience shows that a parent’s/guardian’s involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school.  To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:


  • Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.
  • Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.
  • Monitor your child’s homework daily.
  • Expect and support positive behavior at school.
  • Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.


I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students.  We, as a whole, experienced huge academic gains last year and our state standardized test scores illustrated that.  Our teachers are amazing.  Our HP and parents are supportive.  Cal Farley's shares their best resources.  Welcome to MFE and thank you in advance for your support and commitment.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 806.533.1424 or dnewton@boysranchisd.org.
