Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! This year brings many changes to the St. Bernard School District and to Chalmette Elementary. While our overall enrollment has decreased due to the opening of the new Arlene Meraux Elementary, we will be welcoming many students from Arabi Elementary due to redistricting. We are excited to include these students in our Viking family, and look forward to getting to know everyone.
Our goal this year is to go beyond the expected to meet the needs of every student, making Chalmette Elementary a special place to learn and grow! A few new additions will help us to do that. A new science lab will be available for students to explore and experiment, and each fifth grade class will have its own set of chrome books for student use.
And of course our most valuable resource is YOU. Parent involvement is critical to student success. You can stay involved by using the online tools available, including the school and district websites to keep informed of upcoming events and the Parent Access Center to monitor your child’s grades. You can also encourage your child to practice his/her skills at home using the computer programs available through the school website.
The faculty and staff look forward to working with you and your children. With your help I am confident that your child will have a productive and enjoyable school year.
