Welcome Incoming 7th Grade Students and Students New to Chaboya Middle School
Dear Parents and Future Chaboya Colts:
It is with great pleasure that our teachers and staff welcome you and your incoming seventh grade student or new to Chaboya student to a wonderful year of learning at Chaboya Middle School. Our goal at Chaboya is to continue to create self-sufficient and independent citizens with an enthusiasm for learning and respect for themselves and others. Together we work with our families, community, and staff to strive for excellence for all our students.
Our new student orientation webpages introduce parents and students to Chaboya’s programs, answers frequently asked questions about Chaboya, and provides advice to new 7th graders and new to Chaboya students and to parents. All 7th grade students take English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, and Physical Education as well as an elective class each semester. So, these pages serve as an initial guide for students as they select their elective classes for the 2021-2022 school year.
Every 7th grade student has the opportunity to take one elective during the fall semester and another elective class during the spring semester. Elective classes are assigned on a space available basis. An email message will be sent in the spring to incoming 7th grade parents that includes a link to an online elective request form that all students must complete. Once selected and scheduled, elective classes will not be changed, so please choose carefully.
In addition to our teachers, we have an excellent group of support staff members that include our front office staff members, our school counselor, and our assistant principals. We look forward to the start of the new school year and the opportunity to work with you. The entire dedicated Chaboya staff looks forward to partnering with parents in helping ensure that the 2021-2022 school year is a year of growth for all students.
Dr. Marena Doxie
Chaboya Middle School Principal
