Parent Conversations at A.B. Chandler will be on Wednesday, August 5th from 3:00-6:00pm. Home Visits will be on Thursday, August 6th from 1:00-6:00. Staff members will be visiting the homes of those students who did not have a parent/guardian come to the parent conversations.
Congratulations to Brandy Haley! Mrs. Haley has been selected as Chandler's new principal for the 2015-2016 school year! The official press release can be read here.
School supply lists will be mailed soon! If you need another copy, click here to see lists for each grade level.
All students entering 1st - 5th grade for the 2015-2016 were sent home a Summer Reading book and an activity to complete during their summer break. Each grade level sent home specific directions on the last day of school with the book. Please take some time to read the book & complete the activity before school starts. All students that return the activity completed during the first few days of school will receive a reward in late August. All students will also be able to take an Accelerated Reading test on their book to start earning AR points for the 1st marking period!
Remember to read books, practice your sight words if you are a younger student, & practice some math skills over summer break to prevent the summer slide of learning! Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't keep working hard!
A.B. Chandler Elementary is honored to be named a "Lighthouse School" by the Franklin Covey Leader in Me program. Visit The Leader in Me website for more information.

Title I School: Chandler qualifies as a Title I School Wide Program. This means that at least 40% of students are low income. In order to raise academic achievement for all of our students, our district allocates funds to our school. These funds may be used to reduce class size, buy resources, provide programs, and etc. One of our school's goals is to create a partnership with our parents, students, and community. With the help of Title I funds, we are able to provide Parent/Family events such as Family Night. We also look for ways to keep our parents informed and involved through meetings, newsletters, conversations, and etc.
