Principal's Pen

Greetings Chaffee Families,

I would like to congratulate our newly elected Student Council officers:

  • President: Alana Putt
  • Vice President: Berkeley Blackwell
  • Treasurer: Lucas Adams
  • Secretary: Zoey Barnes

I look forward to working with our Student Council officers, class representatives, and Ms. Booker to steer the great things happening at Chaffee.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our Raise Craze Fall Fundraiser! Funds raised will directly support our students. I hope your family will attend our Campus Clean Up this Thursday. You can come and go from 4:30-7pm. We have great plans to make our campus even more beautiful, but we need your help to achieve our goals!

Our Lost & Found is full of items. Please remind your child to look for lost items this week. Also, it would be great to label your child’s items with his/her name or your family’s last name so that we can get lost items back to your child. All items remaining in Lost & Found on September 29 will be taken to a donation site.

This year, as part of the Alabama Literacy Act, students in 3rd grade who do not score proficient on the spring ACAP reading test may not be promoted to 4th grade. It is imperative that our students are at school daily unless sick so that they can receive their many tiers of instruction. We want all of our students to be successful, but we cannot educate them if they’re not at school.

As a reminder, Friday, September 29th, is an eLearning day for all Huntsville City Schools. Be on the lookout for more information from your child’s teacher about this day. All students will receive assignments that will be turned in using the method requested by the classroom teacher. In addition, K-5 classroom teachers will provide three support times via zoom to assist students with instruction, assignments, and/or answer instructional questions the students may have.

Soar Eagles,

April Clark
