From Our Principal

Chandler Creek Champions 2020-2021

Dear Chandler Creek Families,

Jane Mills, Principal

I am honored to serve the Chandler Creek School Community for the ninth year as principal. During my tenure, our school has created a mission focused on empowering students to be leaders, learners and caring citizens. Our efforts in the larger community of Greer, South Carolina has resulted in  School Improvement Council ( SIC)  recognition and our academic performance has consistently been rated as a school with high growth performance and student engagement.

During the 2020 school year, our school was named as a Capturing Kids Hearts Showcase School joining with schools nationwide who recognize that building relationships with students and families is an indicator for school success.  This school year, select school teams are involved in a yearlong professional learning community to strengthen social emotional learning with the Conscience Discipline Model. We also will connect in each classroom with daily social and emotional lessons as we address the impacts of the Covid Pandemic.

I would like to encourage our families to be aware of the South Carolina College and Career Standards and the intentional work within Greenville County Schools to support students over time as they seek College and Career readiness. Our elementary school is dedicated to the G+ initiative to Build a Better Graduate beginning during the foundational years of school.

I am available to you throughout the year as needed. Monthly parent newsletters, along with weekly home phone calls in English and Spanish, will be used to keep you updated on school events. As a parent and/ or guardian, I encourage you to join our school PTA and be involved in our improvement efforts with the school SIC. Parent teacher conferences will be held two times a year and as requested and additional information can be accessed using the Parent Backpack Forum.

I am excited to welcome you to Chandler Creek Elementary where we will “Connect the Pieces for a Successful School Year.”

Connecting with the heart,

Principal Jane Mills
