Letter from the Principal
Welcome to Candler School! We are excited for the 2016-17 school year and what we will accomplish together. It’s great to see returning students and meet our new students. We have an exciting year of learning ahead of us, and I can’t wait to get started.
This handbook contains important information regarding our school and school rules as well as important Board of Education policies. I hope that you find it a helpful resource.
Candler Elementary is a wonderful school with a family atmosphere that strives to provide quality academic instruction in a nurturing and safe environment. This year, we continue our quest to be Candler CATS, showing Caring, positive Attitude, Teamwork and Self-control at all times…even when no one is watching. Our school is a special place because of our school family members…the students, parents, staff and community partners. We desire the best for all students and look forward to partnering with parents and community members to help our students be their best. Students…bring with you each day your positive attitude and willingness to work hard. Our teachers will be prepared to teach you and help you grow as students and young people. Parents…thank you in advance for making sure your children are present and on time each day. Talk to your children about their day, encourage them, and support them in their education. I encourage you to be involved as much as you can and to communicate often with your child’s teacher. Together, we can accomplish great things!
At CES, we start each day with a promise that says who we are and what we are about at Candler School. We affirm daily that we are focused on learning and that we will be positive and caring people. In this environment with our commitment to one another, we can accomplish more collectively than we could have done independently. I’m glad that you are part of the Candler family, and I know that each boy and girl will have a great school year.
Stephen D. Chandler, Principal
