Principal's Corner

Principal's Message

Welcome to the Ruth L. Chaffee School Website,

Ruth L. Chaffee School is nestled in the southeast corner of Newington where the learning process is supported by a talented staff and involved parents.  As a community of learners, the school takes pride in its accomplishments where active learning is the cornerstone for our success.  The teaching staff is knowledgeable about the latest trends in education in view of "best practices" and they continue to receive ongoing training to further refine their skills.

The parent population is extremely supportive of the school where they are encouraged to get involved in their child's education.   This support is further enhanced by an active PTA who provides a number of family activities throughout the school year in addition to the cultural events they bring to the student population.  It is through open communication between home and school that makes Ruth Chaffee School a special place to learn and work.  Our children are the direct beneficiaries of the partnership that has been maintained over the years where it is our goal to meet the needs of every youngster.

Welcome to our website, and we appreciate any comments or suggestions you might share with us.

Richard M. DeBellis, Principal
