New Student/Family Information (2019-2020 School Year)
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I want to welcome you into the Chappelow family. The 2019-2020 school year promises new opportunities for learning within Chappelow’s educational environment. We have a history of being a school of excellence, and we strive to continue that tradition this school year.
Chappelow Arts Magnet School, is the only K-8 school in the region that offers an integrated arts strand. From kindergarten through eighth-grade, Chappelow’s students are immersed in meaningful, purposeful and rigorous daily instruction. Chappelow believes that an arts-rich education is a key factor for academic success. Our K-4 students develop and grow through our Arts Education Programs. Taught by certified art educators, students are developing artistic literacies in music, theater, and visual arts. Our 5th-8th grade students continue their educational development in our Artful Learning Program. In this program, students develop deeper skills in selected art forms and are able to use those skills in focused creative expressions.
Parents and families are an important part of the educational team at Chappelow. You are an integral part of our learning environment, and we value your support and input as we strive to foster excellence everyday for everyone.
Our office is open from 7:15 a.m until 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and our staff is here to serve your needs. Below are some helpful links for registration, upcoming important dates and other additional information. Please contact me if I can provide any additional support. Once again, welcome to the Chappelow family!
