District Announcements

We are excited to welcome students back tomorrow (Monday, February 6) after a long week of winter weather!
This is Super Bowl Week, and we are excited that our Missouri's own, Kansas City Chiefs, will be playing for the championship. We will start it off with Mahomes Monday -- Everyone should wear their favorite hat or headband. We do realize that there are a few Eagles fans around so we want them to know that they can adapt the days to their team.
Also, just a reminder that this Wednesday (February 8) will be a regular day of school with no late start or early dismissal due to our hosting the Charleston Lady Blue Jays for a 1:00 p.m. girls varsity basketball game. Students from grades 3-12 and our friends from St. Ambrose will be attending the game that day. Thank you and have a great week!

National School Counseling Week is February 6-10.  Thank you Mrs. Cossou and Mrs. Shy for all that you do and for helping all students succeed at CES and CHS! We appreciate you!

Congratulations to Mr. John Cundiff, Chaffee Jr/Sr High School Principal, who was recently recognized as the 2022 Sending School Principal of the Year at the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals (MoASSP)/ Missouri Council of Career & Technical Administrators (MCCTA) Conference.
Mr. Travis Wilson, Cape Girardeau Career and Technology Center (CTC) Assistant Director, shared, "I have worked with Mr. Cundiff for the past 2 years. In that time, I have witnessed his continuous efforts for the students of Chaffee High School (CHS). It’s abundantly clear that Mr. Cundiff has a desire to see that his students are prepared for success beyond CHS. This year I have been able to work even more closely with him as he continues to champion career and technical education (CTE) in his school community. Specifically, Mr. Cundiff has supported efforts to enroll students in our MO Options program. This opportunity provides hope for students to obtain a high school diploma and gain job ready skills for the next chapter of their life! Please join us in celebrating Principal Cundiff on earning this recognition and award! We're so grateful to work with such dedicated educators like him as it means all the difference to the students we serve.”

Congratulations Mr. Cundiff!  Chaffee School District is proud of you!

Chaffee R-II School District Announces Dr. Shawn Nix as Superintendent for 2022-2023
Following a comprehensive search process, involving surveys and several special meetings, the Chaffee R-II Board of Education has selected a familiar face to serve as the new superintendent to lead the district beginning July 1, 2022. Dr. Shawn Nix, who served in the district from 2003 through 2015 will step into the role as superintendent.
Foreshadowing his commitment to the district and expressing his pleasure with the decision of the Chaffee Board, Dr. Nix commented, "I am honored to be given the opportunity to come home to Chaffee and serve as the Superintendent. I look forward to working with the staff and community to continue the tradition and excellence of Chaffee R-2."
Dr. Nix was selected from a field of thirteen candidates who applied through the MSBA search program. Throughout the process there were strong and consistent indications that a great deal of value is placed on building relationships and doing what is right for people. In his application Nix stated, "At the root of a successful administrator is always remembering the reason you are doing your job: to do and make decisions that are in the best interest of students."
Nix began his career in education at Mountain Grove, Missouri as a 4th grade instructor and followed
that with his time at Chaffee as a Special Education instructor, Director of Special Education and assistant elementary principal. Most recently serving as elementary principal at Oak Ridge R-VI (2015-2020) and Scott County R-IV (2020-2022), he will be entering his 25th year in education when his duties begin in July 2022.
Dr. Nix and his family reside in Chaffee with both sons currently attending Chaffee R-II.
