Mrs. Kelly Fontenot
Dear Chesbrough Elementary Wildcat Family,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I am looking forward to another wonderful school year at Chesbrough Elementary School(CES). Although we are starting the year off with a variety of learning models (traditional, blended, full virtual), I am confident that we will still have opportunities to build the close relationships between our students, parents and the community. We are learning together how to work within the "New Normal" during this pandemic. Thankfully, our students are resilient and our teachers have been preparing and they are up for the task!
Chesbrough Elementary is a school rich in the tradition of excellence where children are the focus. I am very impressed with the professionalism and dedication of our staff, the parental support and the students' hunger for learning. I join in the partnership of all stakeholders involved in working together to insure that our students experience success each and everyday. My hope is that our school atmosphere continues to be that of a warm, welcoming environment for everyone.
It is the goal at Chesbrough Elementary to provide the students the best possible education that will prepare them for College and Career, in a safe and secure learning environment. Our teachers continue to dedicate themselves by preparing and delivering the best individualized lessons for their students, both virtually and in person. By delivering Tier 1 curriculums throughout all gradelevels at Chesbrough Elementary, our staff makes sure that the lessons taught are rigorous and challenging for all of our students. Everyone succeeds because our expectations are high and a high quality education prepares our students for a very bright future because at Chesbrough Elementary, we THINK HIGH and REACH HIGH!
I look forward to my first year as assistant principal at Chesbrough Elementary. Watching your children flourish this year is on top of my list. The most successful schools are those with the most active and supportive parents and guardians. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My door is always open to my Chesbrough Elementary Wildcat Family.
