A Message from Mrs. Shaddix

  • Dear Families,

                We are delighted to have your child in our Head Start and Pre-K/ HS classrooms for the 2021-2022 school year.  At this time, we have 2 Head Start classrooms with three-year old students and 3 Head Start/Pre K classrooms of 4 year old students.

                There is a strong correlation between early childhood education and success in grades k-12. Our teachers and staff will provide a very strong foundation in early literacy, math and social skills for your child. This will all be accomplished in a nurturing and loving environment. Our teachers and staff at CCHS are very dedicated to the success of each child and family. Our staff has a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of the children and families that we serve every day.

                In order to maximize your child’s potential, we need your help. Please volunteer in our classrooms and programs. Parental support will help your child grow and develop academically and socially. Together, we will help provide a solid educational foundation for your child.

                As the director of Cullman City Head Start and the principal of CCPS, welcome to the CCPS/CCHS family! We are very fortunate to have this program within our Primary School because our students will be able to spend four years within these walls, learning and growing every day.

                This handbook has been prepared to inform you of specific policies, activities and procedures to ensure the safety and academic success of the children in our program. Please keep this as a reference tool during the school year.

                We look forward to working with you and your child. Please contact me if I can be of assistance to you and your family.


                                                                            Elizabeth Shaddix
