Dear Chipeta Families,

Have you ever wondered why we do what we do?

In a supportive environment, we inspire children to independently and collaboratively learn, think, and grow so that they are engaged, caring, thoughtful problem solvers and active citizens – so they can be the difference!

How do we do this?

We do this by creating opportunities for –

 - Purposeful balance of skill-based learning with application and problem solving.

 - Failing forward and perseverance. Encouraging risk-taking and teaching self-advocacy.

 - Modeling behavior, thinking, habits of mind, and trying new things.

 - Student-directed, inquiry-based discovery and learning.

 - Relationships and connections in a caring and safe environment.

 - Accountability and high expectations.

 - Developing readers, mathematicians, artists, musicians, athletes, writers, thinkers, and problem finders and solvers.

 - Hands-on, experiential, and engaging learning opportunities.

As a staff, we work on identifying what makes Chipeta a fantastic place for children to learn and grow! Thank you for your support as we continue to learn and grow as a staff so that we help your children to thrive!

With regard,

Sarah Scott, Principal
