A Note from Mrs. Nichols

Happy, happy last days of summer, my Champions!

Have I mentioned lately how very lucky I am to be your Chickasaw principal? I can't imagine doing this without our incredible staff and this community!

To all of our new neighbors, welcome to our Chickasaw family! This is the first of many newsletters you will receive this school year!

This year promises to be challenging in new and different ways. Please know that whatever your family chooses, your champion matters to us and is a part of our team. We will purposely be focused on not only maintaining the HIGH standard of education you have come to expect from our teachers BUT have a heightened purpose in building relationships, whether you are on campus or remote learning.

We promise to have such grace as we start to navigate this back to school and what that may look like for you and your family, and ask that you give the same to us. Decisions aren't being made lightly or easily. You and your family are so incredibly important to us and we will be doing our VERY best to make sure you know that through our actions and plans moving forward.

This first newsletter will offer a little insight into your most asked questions. As we begin to move forward, PLEASE feel free to email or call Ms. Phillips or me. We will answer any questions you have...and promise to be more accurate than Facebook. :)
