Mrs. Deborah Satterfield

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2017-2018 School Year! As I begin my third year as principal, I’m incredibly honored and excited to serve the families of Midvale. For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place. We are a collaborative and driven group of people who take learning seriously while also making personal connections that help boys and girls succeed.

This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we find ways to build on past successes! During the 2017-18 school year, we will continue to enhance and refine the integration of IB and STEM into the DeKalb County School District’s new curriculum. Midvale is the only elementary school in the state of Georgia that has been internationally certified in both IB and STEM. Our passionate, caring, hardworking, teachers will continue to utilize transdisciplinary learning blocks to implement instruction that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for all students. Our committed staff is ready and eager to move students to the next level of greatness. Parents are invited to join us on this journey. We value your involvement and support in your child’s education. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.


If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me. I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.


Together, we all look forward to this exciting year of challenge and growth where learning takes place in a warm and joyful atmosphere.


Best regards,

Debbie Satterfield
