A Message from the Principal
The month of May kicks off with Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. Words cannot express the amount of admiration, respect, and gratitude that I have for the OUTSTANDING teachers and staff at Imagine-Chancellor. They have put their hearts and souls into this school year to ensure our students achieve their academic and character goals. I am forever grateful for their commitment to our school community.
Throughout the month of May our students in grades K-8 will be taking the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST). I am confident our students are ready and will show what they know to demonstrate their academic growth this school year! They have worked hard all year in preparation and will approach each assessment with determination and grit. I am so proud of all our students for demonstrating love of learning and curiosity throughout the school year as they accomplish all of their goals.
As I have said all year, we are Imagine-Chancellor STRONG. I am so PROUD to be the Principal of this school supported by outstanding students, staff, and parents. Thank you for your continued support!
With great appreciation,

Service Learning Project- Forgotten Solidiers Outreach
In October 2003, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach was born to help send that little bit of home to our troops. Service members were provided with much needed care items, as well as letters of encouragement.
Over the years, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach has become a nationally recognized organization receiving support from all over the country. We send out monthly “We Care” packages to our United States deployed military, who have been registered by family members, friends, commanding officers or themselves.
The fact remains that deployments continue all over the world, and our list continues to grow. Now more than ever, our men and women serving in the military can use that extra morale boost that is received through our “We Care” packages.
Please send items to the school May 1st- May 19th.
Thank you for your support!
