A Message from the Principal

Imagine-Chancellor students and staff continue to demonstrate enthusiasm, curiosity and love of learning. Each and every day, Imagine-Chancellor students show their compassion and kindness for others within their community to promote positive change. These actions make me confident our students WILL make a DIFFERENCE in this world.

Students are working hard to achieve their goals by engaging in lessons, activities, and projects to expand their knowledge and skills. I am incredibly proud of the products of work students are producing to demonstrate their increased level of skills in all academic areas.

I greatly appreciate your dedication and support to ensure we remain Imagine-Chancellor STRONG! One School. One Vision. One Family. Looking forward to continued success throughout this school year!

With great appreciation,

Ms. Standley

Food Service Update

Imagine-Chancellor will undergo a data collection in April to determine eligibility for the state-funded program that affords all of our students’ free breakfast and lunch for the upcoming school year. For this data collection, we must provide them with paper-based free/reduced lunch applications. Although our families completed the online application for this school year, we must have all families who have previously completed an application OR still want to complete an application complete a paper-based application.

All families will need to complete a paper application even if you have been approved this school year through the following:

· SNAP, TANF, WIC, Medicaid

· Received approval by the school for free or reduced

We ask that all paper applications are submitted to the school no later than March 31st, 2023.

The paper-based Free and Reduced Lunch Program application is attached for all families. We strongly encourage all families needing food assistance to apply for the free and reduced lunch program. Please complete the attached paper application no later than March 31st, 2023.

We greatly appreciate your attention and cooperation to this matter.

Safety Patrol Trip to Washington DC

Recently our 22/23 Imagine-Chancellor Safety Patrols visited our nation's capital to learn about the history of the United States and experience various monuments, memorials, museums, and branches of government.

High Ridge Landing Apartment Complex Student Drop Off and Pickup NOT PERMITTED

Visitor Policy

Breakfast/Lunch Account Access

If your child has an outstanding balance, you can load money into your child’s lunch account at All parents need to create accounts to be able to access their students’ transaction histories and add funds. You can also load money into your child’s account by bringing in cash or writing a check payable to Imagine-Chancellor with your child’s name listed in the Memo section. Daily menu options are featured on our website via the Parent Information Hub.

Student Tardiness

Student achievement is of utmost importance at Imagine-Chancellor. Teachers must maximize instructional minutes to promote student learning success. Tardies are a major disruption to the learning environment and student learning. Students miss extremely important intervention/enrichment time. Additionally, learning stops while the tardy student settles into his/her seat.

Student tardies continue to be a problem. We strongly encourage families to ensure their child(ren) are setup for success each morning by arriving to school on time. The instructional day starts at 8:30 am. Therefore, it is expected for all students to be in their seat ready to learn at this time. We appreciate your support in this matter.

Helpful Hint: Morning arrival car lines have extremely little to no traffic between 8:00-8:15 am.
