Message from the Principal

Welcome Back!

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Chahta-Ima Elementary, I am overjoyed to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year where “Learning is a Fiesta!” Our school family’s goal this year is to celebrate our growth of learning while having fun and exploring different subjects. We will strive to accomplish this goal by partnering with our parents, guardians, and all other stakeholders to prepare our students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and most importantly lifelong learners. Chahta-Ima is committed to developing the whole child by providing a dynamic learning environment in addition to its loving, safe, and risk-free atmosphere.

I am looking forward to working with you this school year to foster your child’s growth in education and discover their gifts and talents. At Chahta-Ima Elementary we are excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with our community to strive for academic excellence. Thank you for all that you do to support our school family.

Let’s begin this Fiesta!
