Having fun is what it's all about at Chamisa

-A A +A
By Ben Carlson

Time flies when you’re having fun.
And as she starts year five at the helm of Chamisa and her 22nd year in education, for principal Debbie Smith, time has flown by fast.
“Chamisa is a highly creative and collaborative learning community,” said Smith. “Last year, staff participated in several events involving the students, parents, and community with lasting impact on future learning opportunities.”
One such event was their Raise the Roof Literacy Night and Family Reading Challenge.
In that event, staff worked to provide an evening of engaging, entertaining ideas for parents to become literacy partners with their classroom teachers. The success also extended to local businesses, as rewards were garnered for their Family Reading Challenge during the year.
A second successful collaboration with friend and neighbor, Piñon Elementary is their annual White Rock Cultural Fair.
The event involves individuals and families from the local area and the region working as presenters. They share food, crafts, art, dance, music, languages and storytelling from their cultures.
