Message from the Principal

Dear Families of Chahta-Ima Elementary, 

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year where we are “Planting Ideas and Growing Leaders!” Our  goal this year is to celebrate our growth of learning while having fun and exploring different subjects. 

We want to extend a warm welcome to both our returning students and their families and those who are joining us for the first time. Our dedicated team is committed to supporting each student's unique journey and helping them reach their full potential. While also providing a positive and safe learning environment. We are looking forward to a great partnership with you and our community members to nuture our students to their full potential. 

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. Thank you for all that you do to support our school family.
