Principal’s Message


Here at Chadbourn Elementary we believe that:

 Students learn the most when they are actively involved in the learning
process and have suitable opportunities for achievement.

 A wide variety of learning activities should be integrated into curriculum
and instructional practices to accommodate differences in individual
learning styles.

 Every student is an individual with his or her own physical, emotional, social
and intellectual needs and abilities.

 A variety of services and resources are required for special children (e.g.
special education, limited English proficiency, gifted and talented, etc.).

 A student’s self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual
respect among and between students and staff.

 The main priority of our school is student learning.

 Students need to be given the opportunity to apply their learning in
meaningful contexts.

 A variety of learning approaches should be provided to support different
learning styles.

We are very excited about the upcoming year. Please let me know if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.
