PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  We are so excited to start another wonderful year together and look forward to all the amazing opportunities for fun and learning that await us! The teachers were hard at work over the past few weeks, getting the classrooms ready for the students’ arrival!  The building looks beautiful and we are all excited to work together as a team to service the Chatterton Community!

At Chatterton, we are proud to have a community of learners who are kind and respectful towards peers and adults, motivated to explore new concepts, enthusiastic to share creative ideas and are able to persevere when faced with a challenge.  It is these ideals that we will continue to foster and grow as we embark on this new school year.  We look forward to building upon our school-wide theme of S.O.A.R.S. (Successful, Outstanding, Accepting, Respectful Students) throughout the school year.   Through a strong partnership between the home and school, we are confident that we can see much success for all children.

In an effort to maximize the instructional day for our students, we ask that you work together with the school to ensure your child arrives on time each morning.  This will allow all students to start their day in a positive manner by engaging in the systematic routines set forth by each classroom teacher.  If you child is a walker, please plan to arrive at school between 8:25 AM – 8:35 AM so all students are in their classrooms by 8:40 AM for the start of the school day.

We would like to invite you to visit our school’s website continually throughout the year.  This will serve as a resource for families to stay current regarding upcoming events and view highlights of student activities.  It is also important that your current e-mail address is on file with the school, as many notices will be sent home electronically.

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, September 1st for the first day of school!  As always, we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

As a reminder, school will be closed from Friday, September 3rd to Wednesday, September 8th.  School will reopen on Thursday, September 9th!
