Burnt Chimney Students and Families,

Welcome to “The Chimney”!

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Burnt Chimney Elementary School. At Burnt Chimney we are committed to providing a positive learning environment with high expectations for all students.  In reading and language arts our teachers provide small group guided reading instruction for students at their instructional level.  Teachers are engaging in professional learning about the science of reading and incorporating researched based instructional strategies to help establish a strong foundation of reading skills in our students.  Our math, science, and social studies curriculums use a lot of hands on and real world problem solving experiences.  

You are a valued member of our educational team. Your role in assisting with homework, reading nightly with your child, volunteering in the classroom or at home, attendance at school activities, and participation in PTO are all fundamental to the success of our school/home alliance. Communication is key.  We want you to feel comfortable communicating regularly with your child’s teacher to best support their education.  Together we can contribute to a bright and rewarding future for our children. 

Please review the policies in this handbook and share with your children in order to help them have a very successful school experience. By becoming familiar with this information, we can work collectively for a positive school climate. Together we can ensure that our students will experience a productive and successful year.

I am very much looking forward to beginning this new school year with you!


Allison Garland

Principal, Burnt Chimney Elementary
