Charles H. Chipman Elementary

Building a Firm Foundation for Success

  • Welcome to Chipman Elementary, were we DREAM BIG and SHINE BRIGHT!  We are so excited to have you as part of our family.  The website  is a platform in which we keep our families informed.  We also encourage you to join our Facebook page as a platform to remain engaged.


    Chipman Elementary School proudly serves approximately 230 scholars in grades PK-1st.  We believe in Dreaming Big and Shining Bright with all that we do and accomplish.  We hold high expectations combined with offering the support and encouragement all scholars deserve.  In our school, we are one big family with five "houses," each serving as a support team for the scholars within the house.  The houses represent lifelong positive qualities such as leadership and perseverance.  We believe the school serves as a bridge between home and a student's career and work to ensure all school learning is offered in the context of future career opportunities.  While a scholar at Chipman Elementary, our scholars are provided the materials, food, resource connections, counseling, care, and education to pursue whatever future they can envision!


Upcoming Letter Day


  • Updates for Round 5 non-digital resources/ packets:

    We will continue to use a self-serve model and will not be hand-delivering non-digital packets to vehicles this round. With the self-serve model, pull up into the bus loop and pickup the packets from the table; packets will be labeled by grade level. Please maintain all social distancing requirements including wearing a mask and staying 6-feet apart from others.

    Non-digital packets for Prekindergarten through 5th grade scholars will be available on Tuesday, May 26th from 11:00am-1:00pm and Wednesday, May 27th from 3:00-4:00pm. Novels are also available for pickup for 3rd-5th grade scholars.

    During this time, if your scholar had medication at the school, it can be signed out.
