Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Chaplin Elementary School year! This is a busy and exciting time of the year for students, parents, and teachers. It can also be a time that causes some extra emotions in your house as we re-engage with academic responsibilities.

In order to help you transition not only to a new school year but also a new grade and teacher, we are hosting our annual Back to School Night on Thursday, September 5 at 6:00 PM in the gymnasium. The evening is for parents to learn about the new school year, so I politely ask that you make every effort to have your children remain at home.

I am energized to begin the school year with all of you! My hope is to continue to have a relationship with the parents that allows us to have open communication about our successes and our concerns. We will begin as a whole school in the gymnasium for a greeting in which I will discuss our goals for the school year.

Following this, the teachers will host two sessions in their classrooms. Each session will cover the same information; this will allow you to visit two different teachers if you have multiple children in the school. If you have more than two children, it would be easiest if you and your spouse split attend each of your children’s teachers.

The teachers will have about twenty minutes to share their curricular goals as well as how they would like to engage the parents/guardians in learning process. Please remember that this is a night for them to discuss the upcoming year and is not meant for conferences about individual children.

Thank you the support you offer to the school to help our children succeed and grow both academically and socially!
