I welcome all of you to the 2020-2021 school year and look forward to working with our great staff, parents/guardians and students.  I know this isn’t necessarily how we all planned on returning to school, but I know this will be a great school year.  Your teachers have been hard at work designing virtual lessons to engage and challenge you. I can’t express how important your attendance and completing your classwork will be this year.  Your support and involvement in your student’s education is essential.  We encourage you to call our office at any time if you have a question or to find out more on how to get involved. 

Chemawa offers a rigorous curriculum across all content areas.  We know that every student is capable of experiencing academic achievement and with your help we will ensure they perform at high academic levels.  We ask that you guide and support your student’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

- Attends school daily and arrives on time ready to learn

- Completes all homework assignments given by their teachers

- Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve their literacy skills

- Understands that you expect them to succeed in school and in college and/or career

In addition to our focus on academics, we also strive to provide our students with a positive and safe campus.  Given that school safety is a priority, school rules are strictly enforced with the best interest of our students.  Our rules and expectations are built around our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports) principles – “Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Kind”. 

I look forward to a positive and productive partnership with you.  I extend an open invitation to our Chemawa community and look forward to working closely with you to make certain your student’s experience here is a great one!  Please feel free to get in contact with me whenever I may be of service.
