Dear Chimacum Families

This week has been Counselor Appreciation Week. I am deeply grateful for our counseling team, and all our mental health partners for their skill, dedication, and care. I hope you will join me in celebrating them!

Our attendance, discipline, and core academic data are improving across the district. Data that jumps out at me is our attendance. Our attendance rates are up and chronic absenteeism is down by nearly 20%!

These extraordinary improvements are because of all the people working hard in our system engaging students in meaningful ways. But it should not go unnoticed the critical role our counselors have played in supporting students' social and emotional needs so they can feel successful and confident.

Great things are happening in Chimacum. Spread the good word about our counseling team!

Dear Chimacum Families,

We are at the halfway point of the school year! It has flown by.

We are pleased to let you know that our friend and Chimacum Alumna, Nancy McDaniel, has given us permission to use a chapter from her new book Chimacum: In the Valley Near the Water on the history of the district. You can find this chapter on our website linked here.

Great things are happening in Chimacum! 

  • We are excited about course offerings at secondary and some of the many fun activities and events in our elementary schools. 
  • Many of our winter athletes are preparing for playoff competitions and spring sports are around the corner! 
  • For our community’s three- and four-year olds we will be getting registration information out about preschool and Transition to Kindergarten for fall of 2024. 
  • For more information about the 2024 Capital Projects Levy you can visit our website page linked here.

Stay tuned!

Superintendent's Message 12/01/2023

Dear Chimacum Families,

Welcome to December. Time moves pretty quickly! 

Regular attendance is one of the keys to academic achievement and personal growth for our students. It also helps develop lifelong habits and ensures students don't miss out on valuable learning experiences. It is important that we educators offer engaging and relevant learning for all our students, and that our families come alongside us to ensure their child’s attendance (not including illness).

The Covid pandemic created attendance challenges everywhere, and many Chimacum students were chronically absent (10% or more days missed) for the last few years. But I want to let you know that our attendance rate has improved substantially, and we are hopeful that this trend will continue! Our current attendance rate is over 90%- last year at this time it was less than 85%.

Each day in class is a building block for success, shaping the broad horizons for our students. Our improving attendance reflects our community's strong support for education and the value we place on learning, as well as our teachers’ efforts to create more authentic and relevant learning opportunities!

Let's continue this momentum. Together, we cultivate a learning community where every student will learn, dream, and become!

Thank you for your ongoing partnership in nurturing our students' success.

Dr. Scott Mauk, Superintendent
