Student Placement is taken very seriously at Chandler Creek Elementary. It is initiated according to a process that involves great time, effort, and careful thought to ensure success for our students. Classrooms are heterogeneously grouped to mirror our society. In order to create balanced classrooms, we consider gender, ethnicity, ability levels, student needs, behavior concerns, and special program needs.
When creating classroom rosters, we would like to give you an opportunity to tell us more about your child. You are welcome to write a letter about your child’s learning style, behavioral needs, or special concerns and e-mail it to Mrs. Mills at firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop a letter by the office. We cannot accept a request for specific teachers, yet we will consider your comments and work hard to find the best placement for your student.
A special note that class assignments will not be made until summer months once we have our full enrollment. A personalized letter will be sent by your child’s new teacher in August to welcome him/ her to their new class and provide needed information about our Meet and Greets.
We are encouraged by our parent to school partnership and the future of Chandler Creek Elementary.
Thank you greatly for helping us.
Beginning with the 2014 -15 school year, all children entering seventh grade must have received a dose of Tdap vaccine to protect them from pertussis (whooping cough). Parents do not have to wait until their child enters the seventh grade as children as young as seven years old can be vaccinated. Parents will need to provide their child’s school with a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization showing that their child received this newly required Tdap vaccine. Parents, please don’t wait – avoid the rush by making an appointment with your child’s healthcare provider to get the required Tdap vaccine and other vaccines recommended for your child’s protection.
The safety of our young students is a top priority for Greenville County. Students in K4, K5, and 1st Grade who ride the bus must receive a bus tag. Parents and guardians will receive an identical tag to get the student from the bus. Please stop by the office to get bus tags or for more information.
