Chugiak Chatter 2016-2017 Edition #1
READY, CONNECT, GROW!
Congratulations! We have successfully opened the 2016-2017 school year! We are so thankful and excited to reunite returning families and also to welcome many new families to our Chugiak family. Over the past nine school days, I have been so inspired by our students and encouraged for this new year. Our older students are already assuming leadership opportunities through different school-wide jobs and are setting an example for our younger students of what responsibility, friendship, selfcontrol, creativity, and more looks like in action. Our youngest students are learning routines and expectations, establishing their role in our school community, being inquisitive, forming new friendships, and exploring new horizons. All of our students K-5 are digging into rigorous content, forming strong connections with friends and teachers, sharing stories, and learning from one another. With this momentum and enthusiasm from teachers, staff, students, parents, and the great community, Chugiak Elementary has set the foundation for year bursting with academic, social, emotional, and leadership growth. Thank you, families, for partnering with us on this journey. We couldnâ€™t do it without YOU.
I AM SPECIAL BECAUSE
