Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

As the Principal of Chickasaw Elementary, I want to welcome you to our school where we work hard and strive for excellence in all that we do. We have many programs and resources available to our students and families. If you need help in any way please contact our front office and we will be able to get you in touch with the right person.

We provide many exciting programs for students in addition to their classroom work. Our “Accelerated Reader Program” is a motivational program that maintains points for the percent correct of reading comprehension questions presented to students on the computer. Students accomplishing certain point levels will receive a brag tag during our bi-weekly lunch time recognitions and participate in special recognition activities every nine weeks. The AR points are part of the students’ homework grade. The i-Ready program is computer-assisted instruction in reading and math that provides a unique learning path for each student according to his or her individual needs. We work hard here to foster a love of reading through these programs and challenge your child to always do his/her best.

I realize these are odd times where we are learning new ways to educate our students amidst the Covid pandemic. We have many new procedures in place to keep your child and our staff safe and healthy. All students and staff wear a mask at all times, students are distanced in the classroom and throughout the day, and increased cleaning and sanitization occurs by our custodial staff more frequently. Our campus doesn’t feel exactly the same with the reduced number of students physically on campus, but we will always strive to provide the most rewarding educational experience for ALL students!
