Welcome to Chipman Elementary
Welcome to Chipman Elementary, where we DREAM BIG and SHINE BRIGHT! We are so excited to have you as part of our family. The website is a platform in which we keep our families informed. We also encourage you to join our Facebook page as a platform to remain engaged.
Chipman Elementary School proudly serves approximately 230 scholars in grades PreK-3, PreK-4, Kindergarten, and 1st grade. We believe in Dreaming Big and Shining Bright with all that we do and accomplish. We hold high expectations combined with offering the support and encouragement all scholars deserve. In our school, we are one big family with five "houses," each serving as a support team for the scholars within the house. The houses represent lifelong positive qualities such as leadership and perseverance. We believe the school serves as a bridge between home and a student's career and work to ensure all school learning is offered in the context of future career opportunities. While a scholar at Chipman Elementary, our scholars are provided the materials, food, resource connections, counseling, care, and education to pursue whatever future they can envision!
