Report Card Conference Day
Report Card Conference Day will be Tuesday, October 24th, from 4:30-7:45 PM. Don't miss this oppurtunity to confer with your child's teachers and pick up their report card. In order to receive the most benefit from this conference time, please make arrangements for your children. Students whose parents attend will earn a FREE HOMEWORK PASS.
The Bloodmobile will be at CES on Wednesday October 25th, from 3 pm - 8 pm. As role models, we teach our children by example every day. You have a unique oppurtunity to teach your child about the importance of assuming community responsibility through donating blood. Because blood cannot be manufactured, it is our duty to make certain that this lifesaving resource is available for area patients when needed. Students that recruit at least one successful blood donor (donor must donate) will revieve a Blood Center T-shirt AND will be invited to an ice cream party.

Chalmette Elementary School
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.
