Welcome to Chilhowee Intermediate!

  • It is truly an honor for me to return to the Chilhowee Intermediate family. I look forward to another outstanding year at Chilhowee! We are making great strides in preparing our students for future endeavors.
    At Chilhowee Intermediate, we believe in doing our Eagle BEST.  We work through struggles, celebrate accomplishments, and prepare our students for the next steps in their academic careers.  But we do not do it alone. We rely on our close-knit network of parents, family members, and the surrounding community for support and encouragement. We are a team! And together we can ensure our students succeed. Whether you are a new member of the Chilhowee Intermediate family or a returning family member we encourage you to become involved in the PTA.  Your active participation will enable the PTA to support teachers and students through a variety of activities.  
    Thanks in advance for your support of our students and teachers.  If you need to contact me for any reason, please don’t hesitate to call 865-594-1285 or email sherry.hensley@knoxschools.org. I look forward to our wonderful year ahead.

    Best wishes for a terrific year of learning and growing, 
    Sherry Hensley, Principal
