• Hello Venetia Vikings!

    Welcome to Venetia Elementary School of the Medical Arts, where our belief is “Healthy Lives. Strong Minds.” I am honored to serve as the Principal of such a wonderful school and community. I am eager to start my 5th year as the Principal of this magnificent elementary school. A hidden gem of the Westside. Our theme for the 2021-2022 school year is, “One Team. One Dream. Bringing Our “A” Game!” We are excited to enter another school year with the School Grade of an A! We will explore the many possibilities of being a champion leader and having a gold medal year.

    We have made it through one of the most challenging school years due to COVID-19, but with our continued focus on safety, wellness, and excellent instruction, we thrived. We are looking forward to getting back to a normal school year.

    At Venetia Elementary, we strive to provide excellent instruction through embedding medical arts and health standards and implementing strong instructional practices that meet the needs of students through differentiated instruction, student ownership, and higher order thinking activities that encourage collaborative problem solving.

    We truly believe in doing what is BEST for our children and showing them genuine care through building meaningful relationships. It is my belief that an educator’s job is to make students fall in love with learning by being passionate about our way of work in every classroom, reaching every student, every day. I am honored to have this opportunity to make this year a unique and valuable experience for everyone involved in the success of your child. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our professional efforts, will ensure academic success for your child.

    It is my top priority to provide students with a safe and effective learning environment, full of rich experiences. I am eager to get to know all our wonderful students and families this year. I look forward to personally meeting you.  

    Let’s have an amazing 2021-2022 school year!

    Your Principal,

    Monique L. Chatman


    Excellence is the Standard Every Day!
