A Message from the Principal
Welcome to Murray A. Chittick Elementary School! A National Blue Ribbon School, Chittick has a longstanding history of excellence in educating the whole child - creating a positive school climate which supports academic, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.
We are thrilled to have you as a part of our community. When you attend Chittick School you are a part of a group of staff, students, and parents who are dedicated to helping children develop their best selves. In order to achieve this goal, we provide our students with access to a well-developed, standards-based, and comprehensive curriculum. We also prioritize the development of social-emotional skills, and embed opportunities for students to learn and practice these skills in a supportive peer environment. We believe that when academics are combined with these essential skills, along with opportunities for exploration in physical play and the arts, students have a well-rounded educational experience that helps them to grow in many important ways.
The students at Murray A. Chittick School “Shine Like STARs”. Our Chittick Stars show kindness, take responsibility, act safely, and respect everyone.
S - Show Kindness
T - Take Responsibility
A - Act Safely
R - Respect Everyone
At Chittick, we understand that parents play a critical role in the success of our students as individuals as well as the success of our school community. We encourage all parents to maintain involvement with the school throughout the year.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas. Your input and feedback are welcomed and valued!
