Dear Chattahoochee Hills Charter School Family,
Beginning tomorrow, Monday, July 13, and for the next 33 days, I will be posting a blog each day. Each blog contains the content of an email that I began sending to the CHCS staff on my first official day as principal, July 1. Those daily emails to staff, entitled, "Learning Is In Our Nature, Too!", will continue through August 2. On August 3, our staff returns for preplanning week where we will continue to learn together and plan for the upcoming school year.
The daily emails were designed to help the staff to get to know me and my vision for the school before we meet officially, for the first time, on Monday, August 3. The emails were designed, too, to help us focus on our mission, purposes, values, and focus because they are the driving force behind our curriculum and instruction and every decision we make. I wanted to share them with you, our parents, families, community members, supporters, and larger community, so that you can get to know me, but, even more importantly, to revisit who we are as a school, what differentiates us, and where we're going in the next year and into the future.
I would love for you to interact with the content and with me after you read each blog. What are your thoughts? What are your questions? What are your concerns? What are your ideas? My email address is: Walter.Buttler@chatthillscharter.org (make sure you put 2 "T"s in "Buttler"!). Please type "BLOG" in the subject line.
I hope you enjoy what you read and that it stirs your thinking.
Walter Buttler, Principal
