Welcome to Cape Hatteras Elementary School!
Home of the Tropical Storms, CHES fosters a culture of caring and academic achievement. I am proud of the overwhelming academic growth that our staff and students have achieved. For the fourth consecutive year, Cape Hatteras Elementary School has been been honored by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction as a Title I Reward School for sustained student achievement. This is also the third year that we have been recognized by the state as a Green Ribbon school for our continued implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. As we learn from and build on our successes, CHES continues to use school improvement goals to challenge our students. Our goals also address the changes Hatteras Island is experiencing in our population, our economy, and our landscape.
Our staff is committed to encouraging and equipping our students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. With this vision, we can reflect on the accomplishments of previous years and light the course for students for years to come.
Thank you for taking time to read about our 2015-16 achievements. Our motto is “We are the hope and the future, and hand-in-hand, we will learn today.” We owe our success to the support of our families and extend an open invitation to the Hatteras Island community.
Come join the Tropical Storms. Be a part of the future!
