Mr. Chrisman

Welcome Parents and Students,

My name is Mr. Chrisman and I have been a principal in Deer Lodge since 2005.  I started here as the 6-8 Principal up until August of 2017 and then transferred to the K-5 Principal position.

I have made a career in education since 1990 and have been a part of schools in three Alaskan communities and two in  Montana.  My wife and I are parents to three wonderful children and we have an amazing daughter-in-law.  Recently we have been blessed with our first grandchild.   

Feel free to stop in at any time if you have questions or concerns or just want to say hello.
