Principal's Corner


                                         WELCOME TO THE  2020 - 2021  SCHOOL YEAR! 
"Expect Excellence in Everything

Dear Chestnut Log Middle School Families,

Welcome to Chestnut Log Middle School. Home of the Bears. It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself. I am Caroline Whitt, the new principal of Chestnut Log Middle School. My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has shaped me over the past 22 years.

My goal as your new principal is to serve as a visible liaison between parents, teachers, and students. The theme for the 2020-2021 school year is "Expect Excellence in Everything" where we will encourage our students to evolve into leaders that value their academics, athletics, arts, and character. In accordance with this theme, the CLMS Administrative Team will implement a goal in which we focus on providing excellent customer service, rigor, and a sense of community while sustaining a rich legacy by honoring traditions our school has made over the years.

My educational philosophies are:

· Nurturing a culture for learning through inquiry, building relationships, and supporting innovation, all of which allows educators to find sustainable solutions to problems most K-12 schools encounter.

· Seeking to connect families, educators, and students in schools to maximize every learner's academic achievements.

· Believing that by focusing on literacy, self-awareness, and professional development, students, as well as educators, are on track to becoming lifelong learners who make valuable contributions to our society."

I will encourage students daily by demonstrating that, "Leadership is doing what is right, even when no one is watching." I firmly believe in developing the whole child by collaborating with teachers and parents showing empathy when any discussion takes place that affects a child.
