Welcome Back Mustangs!

As we begin our year together I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jonathan Ferrell and I have the honor of serving as the principal at Mill Creek Elementary. This is my third year here at Mill Creek and I am so excited to welcome back our teachers, our students, and our entire school community!

I live in Overland Park with my wonderful wife Kristen who is a nurse practitioner. We have four adorable (and ornery) children: Annie 7th grade, Max 4th grade, Ruby 2nd grade, and Lucy who is 4. My kids attend Westridge Middle School and Lenexa Hills Elementary just down the road from here. This is my 17th year in education - I was a 6th grade teacher for 11 years as well as a library media specialist and instructional coach.

If this is your first experience with Mill Creek Elementary - WELCOME - this is a wonderful place for kids, our staff, and our families. The Mill Creek school team is a committed group of professional educators who dedicate their time and talent to their students. Our school consistently attains high academic achievement and is a place where all members of our community belong. We are grateful for the incredible support from our community, families, and specifically our PTA.

We know that all good things happen through partnerships are we are grateful you all are on our team working toward the same goal: Each student with a personalized learning plan that will prepare them for college and careers, with the interpersonal skills they need for life success.

It's a great day to be a Mustang!
