Welcome New Families!

Along with our Board and New Family Coordinators, let us be the first to welcome you to Chickering Elementary School! You have chosen a wonderful school for your children filled with amazing teachers and support staff, administrations and of course, kids!

We understand transitioning to a new school and town can be scary. Whether it's having your littlest ones walk through those big doors for the first time, or having to send your older children to a new middle school or high school, we are here to tell you it's going to be okay. You've made the right decision and you've settled in a wonderful town!

The PTO hosts several events throughout the year that will give you and your family a chance to meet new people and make new friends all the while learning about Chickering school and its community. Myself, fellow Board members, and our New Family Welcome Team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

If you have any questions or you'd like to get involved with the PTO, please don’t hesitate to contact us. I look forward to meeting you and kicking off what is sure to be a wonderful school year for you and your family!
