Dear Chippewa Families,

I hope you had a wonderful February recess. Spring is around the corner and hopefully it will bring warm and beautiful weather with it. 


Masks are now optional both in school and on the buses. We are on our way to return to a more typical elementary school experience. I want to thank you all for your support during this difficult time. We are gearing up for a busy spring. More information will be coming on these fun activities, PTA events and field trips.


The New York State Math and English Assessments will begin in March. Below you will find the testing schedule dates for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.

 E.L.A. Tests: March 29th and 30th

Math Tests: April 26th and April 27th

Parents of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students can submit on the google form provided by the district if your child will be participating in these examinations this year. Here is the link as well.


For those that have been asking, Chippy has been found and was back at Chippewa this week. We look forward to having him participate in our upcoming school activities. 


 A letter will be coming out shortly about class placement for the 2022-2023 school year. The letter provides the  details of what these letters can and cannot contain. Please know that I read every letter received. The best way to share these letters is through email at


 The last month has been wonderful seeing our parents and families back in our building.

I am looking forward to seeing more faces throughout the remainder of the school year.
