A Message from the Assistant Principal

As we enter the final weeks of the 2020-2021 school year, it is an honor and privilege to be part of the Imagine Schools Chancellor Campus Family! Our school is a wonderful place for students to learn and grow. The entire Imagine Staff is dedicated to the success of every child on our campus.


Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year. I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of hard work and doing whatever was necessary to support students—both at home and at school. Special thanks to our PTSA who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience. In addition, that experience could not occur without the endless energy, skills and devotion of the Imagine Chancellor staff. Thank you, and well done to an incredible group of professionals!


A final word to Imagine Chancellor students: Thank you for all your hard work throughout this unique and different school year. I am so honored to be your Assistant Principal; you make me proud to be a part of the Chancellor Family! I am grateful for your joy, astute insights, and amazing talents. Best wishes to our graduating eighth graders, whom I will miss greatly! Everyone have a safe, healthy, and happy summer break!! Until next school year, here’s wishing you love, laughter and learning!


“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

-Maya Angelou


With much love,

Mr. Watts

Mrs. Reale's Farewell Message

To My Imagine Chancellor Family,


This is a moment of both sadness and happiness. I have accepted a Counselor position in Broward, much closer to home.


I have been here at Imagine Chancellor for 11 years, you all have become part of my family. This has been such a positive journey and it is hard to leave. But what I can tell you is, it is easy to say that I have had the pleasure of working with amazing teachers and staff that work very hard each and every day to make this one of the BEST schools around. It cannot be the best without the students and their families. You have chosen us. Because you made this choice, it has become a successful working relationship that equals student success. It is why I love coming to work each day, and I will truly miss you. I wish you all continued success and happiness.


Although I am leaving Imagine Chancellor, I will not be far away as I am joining Imagine Broward, which keeps me in this amazing family relationship. You will all remain close to my heart.


Sincerely,

Mary J. Reale
