Principal's Desk

I am looking forward to another year here at Chilchinbeto Community School. Let us continue to enter into a partnership for the benefit of your child's education. I believe one of the hardest tasks of leadership is understanding that you are not what you are, but what you are perceived to be by others. I am here to help lead our school's destiny. Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.



Sherry Mitchell

That is why we have taken a proactive approach in embracing the deconstructed Common Core State Standards in Beyond Textbooks and have added technological programs to support the core subject areas. I have your child's destiny in mind to produce students who are career and college ready to meet the 21st Century.

I also believe in building a strong foundation that is rich in Navajo Cultural Traditions which will help your child succeed as they go through the educational system and prepare them for life.


All of us at CCS are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever, This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.


As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors; teachers, students, and parents are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. 

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Chilchinbeto meet their goals and have a successful school year.
