Welcome To Porter Traditional School!
Hi! I am Ms. Chapman and this is my 4th year teaching 1st grade at Porter and my 24th year in education! 

As your 1st
grade teacher, I have the special honor of welcoming you, the newest Porter students, to our Porter Family! I am looking forward to meeting each of you and your families! School will be different this year. We will do reading, writing, phonics, math, social studies, and science virtually! You will even have Music, P.E., and Art virtually! Even though we can’t be together physically, we will still create a warm, friendly, and safe learning environment. I am super excited and I hope you are too! I can’t wait to start this new school year with you!

2020-21 School Year 

We know that there are a lot of questions about the upcoming school year and what it will look like. Please refer to the following county resources and check this page throughout the summer for updates concerning your child's education. We look forward to working with you in whatever capacity possible as we stay safe this school year.

The main way that we will be communicating instruction will be through the use of Zoom and Canvas. Canvas is a Learning Management System that allows teachers to virtually deliver content to students. Please explore the resources below to help you better understand Canvas.
