Chugach Optional Newsletter - Summer 2023 Edition
Message From Joel
Dear Chugach Families,
In this final Scoop of the year, I would like to share with you how honored I am to be the principal of this wonderful school. The students, parents, and staff here are phenomenal and have helped to make my first year here an overwhelmingly positive experience. As we wind up this year and begin looking forward to our 50th anniversary year, I would like to reassure families of a couple of things:
- The plan is for our 6th graders to stay here at Chugach.
- We still expect to have our current schedule of M-F 8:10-2:50 and our early release Fridays.
Once again, thank you for welcoming me into the Chugach family this year, and I look forward to seeing all of you (and our new incoming families) in August.
