Mission Statement:    

Charles H. Chipman is a community of connected, capable and contributing individuals that build an environment of lifelong learners.

 Belief Statements:  

  • We are building a firm foundation for success.
  • All children can learn and experience success regardless of diversity, capabilities or background.
  • Education must be the shared responsibility of the student, family, school, and community.
  • Children have a right to learn in a safe and positive environment.
  • All instruction must be engaging and rigorous for children to reach their full potential. 
  •  Individual integrity, tolerance and respect for others must be taught, modeled, expected, and acknowledged


  • We are a Judy Center satellite centered on providing comprehensive services within the community. 
  • We service PK-1st grade which allows us to lay the foundation for the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical well-being of the child through the use of developmentally appropriate practices. 

Car Riders
We use a number system to safely dismiss our students.  Each family that have identified their child as a car rider will receive two car and one book bag tag.  Students will be matched to each vehicle based on a pick up number assigned to your family for their safety.  

All families picking up or dropping off their children at the car rider’s door will be required to display their tag on a daily basis. If someone else is picking up your child, please provide your car pool tag for them to display.  Those without a number will have to go to the office to sign the child out.  If a tag is lost, please request a replacement.

We are asking everyone to please remain in your car when arriving at the car rider door. It is also safer if the child exits from the right passenger door. 

Students who are walking are dismissed from the exit door off of Stewart Street.  We ask that this exit to be used by walkers only.  If you are driving, please use the car rider dismissal on Booth Street.

Thank you for your patience through this process.
