Mrs. Murray's Message
Here we are at the end of the school year. We have had wonderful experiences this year and we want to thank you for sharing your most precious children with us. A new tradition started this year, the senior graduates came to Chattaroy and walked down our halls in their cap and gowns. Our students were sitting on the floor and gave high fives to them. It was one of those teary moments. :)
As we know, skills we do not use begin to diminish so we hope your children will continue to read, journal and practice some math over the summer months. We hope you have a safe summer and look forward to seeing you at the end of August for another great year.
Juanita Murray
Principal

Staff Spotlight-Our New Principal Travis Cross
Staff Spotlight-Our New Principal Travis Cross
We asked Mr. Cross a few non traditional questions in an attempt to get to know him a little better.

How long have you worked in education: "I have worked in education since 2009. I have worked in different capacities: I taught 3rd grade, I have been a para in the resource room, I have worked in a behavior intervention room and as a PBIS Coordinator."
What is your favorite quote? "it's okay to not know, but it's not okay to not try." I lived by this as a teacher. I wanted to see effort, it was my favorite job to help you understand what is being taught."

Who was your favorite teacher in school? "My 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Panther. She was really nice and fun. She understood me as a learner and found creative ways for me to stay focused in class. As crazy as this may sound, I was a bit of a character in school. I knew my principal very well."
If you had to spend 39 days on a deserted island what 3 things would you take with you? "I would take my family (love to spend time with them), fly rod and a hammock."
What is your favorite meal? "I love having steak and eggs with a side of asparagus and a big glass of lemonade."
What are you most looking forward to about working at Chattaroy? "The students, families and staff. I can't wait to get to know the families that make up the community of Chattaroy. I want to build strong relationships and publicize all of the great things that CES students and staff accomplish!"
