Message from the Principal

Greetings! 

I am excited to join the Roadrunner family!  I look forward to serving as your principal as we continue to forge a path through academic and social emotional learning experiences. These experiences will enrich the lives of all students and positively impact our school community.  

I immediately felt the spirit, support and strength within the school community when I took on the role as your principal.  As a former elementary and high school special education teacher, dean of students and associate principal in the Midlothian District, coming to Chalkley has felt like coming home.  I have always felt a strong connection to this community and am excited to work with our families and neighbors.  

Chalkley Elementary School is a community of resilient, productive, & compassionate learners empowered by strong relationships.  I can assure you that our students, staff and administration will embody an Infinite Learner Mindset, and will feel safe and supported within our school community.  

I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia but currently reside in Midlothian with my family.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, Gabby Rose 3, and Adrian 1, as well as my supportive husband who also serves the local community. We enjoy walks in the park, art projects, books and time as a family.  My personal hobbies include reading, working out, relaxing by ANY body of water and connecting with loved ones. 

As we set the stage for the 2020-2021 school year, it is imperative that we put in the work, remain engaged and reflect on our goals.  Together, we will enable our students to thrive within Chalkley and become critical-thinking global citizens.  If you need anything from me please feel free to contact me via email @arianne_hayes@ccpsnet.net or by phone at 804-674-1300.

Yours in Education
Arianne L. Hayes, M.Ed
