Principal's Patch

It is hard to believe that we are almost to the end of 2018. Your children are working hard to master learning objectives in all subjects. Our expectations are high as we believe every child can grow and succeed. Your child(ren) have become familiar with the routines of a classroom environment and are benefiting from gaining a sense of what it is like to be part of a larger group.


We implemented our "Houses" in October, so every student is part of a larger group beyond their own classroom. We are excited about and looking forward to our first "House Challenge" celebration.


We believe parents are the main influence in children's lives. Our goal is to build a relationship with the child and with the family. We are here to help the children express their feelings as they build meaningful relationships with us. We believe that when a child's social and emotional needs are met, he or she can participate fully in the wide range of learning opportunities here at Chandler. Our goal is to partner with you for the success for your child(ren).


We are looking forward to all the great things your child(ren) will do in the future!


We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving break.


Dr. Cindy Lindley
