Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am so excited to announce that I am the new Principal of Chalmette Elementary and we have a new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Andrea Woodward. It is truly an honor to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. The St. Bernard School District’s theme for the year is Unity. Our Chalmette Elementary School goal this year, based on the district theme, is to Unity Is The Way To Victory.
Our faculty and staff are eager to meet the needs of our students in the classroom, but are prepared to adapt to district, state, and federal guidelines to provide a challenging education in a safe environment for our students. Our ever-expanding technology resources and ongoing teacher training will allow us to meet the demands of today’s shifting learning environment.
To stay informed we encourage parents to use the online tools available, including SchoolStatus, the school and district websites as well as individual teacher web pages. Through the Student Progress Center, you can monitor your child’s grades all year long. Our CES Facebook page, Chalmette Elementary Connection, celebrates our successes and provide a calendar of upcoming events. You can encourage your child to practice his/her skills at home, too, using the computer programs available through the school website.
The faculty and staff look forward to working with you and your children. Being united is the way to Victory.
