Greetings Pirate Families,


It is a privilege to serve as your principal! I have many connections to the community and the school. My wife was a former teacher at Ray Childers and I was fortunate to serve the school in 2009 and 2011 as an Instructional Coach. Most importantly, I am pleased to call this community home.


The staff at Ray Childers Elementary is committed to high expectations for all students—inspiring life long learning through a nurturing environment while meeting the needs of each child. 


Our desire is to work collaboratively as a team of students, teachers, parents, and community.  Our focus is to provide an intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners. 


Most importantly, we want to encourage our students to believe in themselves, gain social skills, and positive character traits to assist them in being successful citizens. 


If I can be of service to you or your family—please do not hesitate to contact me.


                                    Honored to serve,


                                    Charles Williams
