Principal- Steve Chandler
Welcome! I’m Stephen Chandler, principal of Candler Elementary School. I’ve had the pleasure of serving as CES principal since 2010.
Candler is a great school where students receive quality academic instruction in a safe, caring and respectful environment. Our school is a special place because of the terrific people that learn and work here and because of the community in which it is located. We desire the best for all students and look forward to partnering with parents and community members to help our students be their best. With everyone working together and doing their part, we are sure to achieve our goals and be successful.
At Candler School, we aspire to be a family of learners that respects and cares about one another. In this environment, with this commitment to one another, we can accomplish more collectively than we could have done independently. Beginning this year, Candler will fully implement a PBIS behavior model. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support and is an evidence-based practice for building a positive social culture that will promote both social and academic success for all students. Our behavioral expectations are that students will be C.A.T.S. . . . committed to the best aspects of Caring, Attitude, Teamwork, and Self-control. Candler CATS will demonstrate kindness and respect, put forth their best effort, work together as a family, and strive to make good choices.
I’m excited about the school year ahead and know that it will be filled with lots of learning and fun. Together, we can accomplish great things!
Stephen D. Chandler, Principal
