    Dear CHES Families,

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am so delighted that you are a part of our amazing learning community. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place. I am confident that you will come to truly love our exceptional school community as much as I do.

    Our teachers and staff are caring, innovative, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of educators who strive to have our students reach their highest potential.


    We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

    • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
    • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
    • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
    • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
    • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
    • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school

    Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:


    • Teacher-led instructional support
    • School-wide events/Student recognition events
    • PTSA



    To help our year go smoothly check out the Capitol Heights Elementary Website, Facebook, and Twitter pages.  They have been updated and have information you need to keep on top of what’s happening at school. 

    All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Please stop by and say hello. Here’s to inspirational learning and memorable moments at CHES.

    One School, One Team, One Goal, One Belief
