Hi Chandler Families! Here at Chandler we are continuing our focus on reading and starting a couple of
new things. We are asking students to take home an AR book each night and read for 20 minutes either
with a family member or independently. Secondly, we are having students read in the gym beginning at
7:15 before morning assembly. During this time, students can read with a buddy or by themselves. We
would greatly appreciate your support in encouraging your child to bring home an AR book each night to
read and have available to read in the mornings.
Henderson County Schools will be implementing Ident-a-Kid Complete Campus Security Solution (CCSS) Visitor Management System for the 2017-18 school year through funding from a Safe Schools grant.
A.B. Chandler Elementary School’s Veterans Day program was held on Friday, November 10, 2017. Our guest speaker was Lieutenant Colonel Tim Palummo who has served in the United States Army Reserves for over 24 years. The program also featured our student choir singing the National Anthem and “America, the Beautiful.” The program was topped off with our annual red, white, and blue balloon release with the playing of “Taps.”
Perfect Attendance Bicycle Drawing:
Two bikes will be awarded at the end of the school year to two lucky students who have perfect attendance. That means no absences or tardies of any sort, whether excused or unexcused (no doctor appointments, funerals, sickness, etc.) All students with no absences will have their names put in a hat and one boy and one girl will be drawn to win. The bikes were donated by Academy Sports and the Masonic Lodge.
