Chehalem is a special place for students to learn and grow. We are proud to be a S.T.E.M. school with an integrated focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We want every child to feel confident that they could easily obtain, and be successful in, any job they might be interested in for the future, especially those in the technology fields. Children as young as kindergarten learn basic coding skills that increase in complexity as they move up the grade levels.
My goal is that student to come to school excited, feeling safe, and ready to learn each day. Our amazing teachers scaffold the instruction to support students who are above or below grade level. We also have a strong focus social-emotional learning as well.
Our quick morning assembly brings us all together as a Chehalem community each day. We recognize students for academic accomplishments and positive behavior, as well as having time to sing along together and do flag and learning pledges. This sense of community is something very special to us here at Chehalem.
I'm proud to serve as a principal of such an amazing school, with fabulous students and exceptional staff!
