Welcome to 2017-18

Hello Parents!

Welcome to Chatt Hills!  I am so excited to work with you this school year.  Attached you will find an introduction letter as well as information from CHCS Foundation.  Also as a reminder, Kindergarten Pre-Assessments for all rising Kindergartners will take place on Friday, July 28, 2017 from 9:00-10:30 A.M.  Please bring the Kindergarten students to Bldg.

Dear Scholars and Families:

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal of Chattahoochee Hills Charter School.  My passion for education has been shaped over the past 17 years as a teacher, after-school tutorial director, grade-level chairperson, instructional coach, SST/RTI chairperson, and assistant principal.  In each of my roles, my goal remained the same, doing what was best for students.  My priorities include, not only educating students, but also making sure that students feel safe and valued.  It is important for students to feel supported and loved and I will work closely with you and the staff of CHCS to ensure this happens.

I am looking forward to watching our students in action as they discover “Aha Moments” during learning here at CHCS.  This will be done by ensuring we provide research-based instructional strategies, hands-on activities, well-planned lessons, and outdoor exploration.  It is also my goal to get our students involved in community projects that could possibly help shape their lives as they become productive citizens in society.  

Most importantly, I am ready to collaborate with students, parents and staff to provide students with educational strategies that will prepare them for daily life, standardized assessments, and college and career readiness.  

This is going to be a great school year!  Below is the list of the new leadership team, and we are all elated to meet each and every one of you!
