Principal's Message

Dear Students:

At Chenery Middle School we share a set of beliefs and values that inform and guide our words and actions. Throughout the year we will discuss these and explore how we can continue to foster them in our school. These core values are represented by our school's motto: RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, READY TO LEARN: EVERYBODY, EVERY DAY.  By making these values central to our time together, we will be successful in ensuring the academic, social, and emotional growth of all students. I look forward to working and learning with each of you.

Very sincerely,
Kristen St. George
