Welcome Back!

Dear Families,

Whoa, that went fast. Welcome back! We are looking forward to a wonderful and exciting 2017-2018 school year.

Don't forget that Open House is on Tuesday, Sept. 5 starting at 2 p.m.
The playground will be open afterwards.

Please be sure and join us on Sept. 19 for Curriculum night. This will start at 6 p.m. for 1-2 parents and then join us for an all parents meeting at 6:45 p.m. where we will introduce staff and PTO chairs and give you an opportunity to sign up for committees that you may be interested in. At 7:20 p.m., the grade 3-5 parents will meet with their teachers. This is a great time to learn what your child will be learning in the coming year.

We also hope everyone can join us for our first PTO meeting on Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m. Come and learn what is happening at our school and how you can get involved with all kinds of activities. 

Thank you everyone and have a great first week!

Chris Miller

Parent Interest Surveys Due Sept. 15

Charlemagne has an amazing and vibrant community of parent volunteers and we need YOU to be a part of it! Whether you have time for just a quick one-hour task, or can commit to an ongoing position, we need everyone's help to make things run smoothly. Not free during the day? There are also ways to help out from home in the evenings. Even if this is your first time with a Kindergarten student, volunteering will introduce you to other parents and staff, along with the satisfaction of contributing to the outstanding education your students receive at Charlemagne. 

Please fill out the Parent Interest Survey, or pick up a paper copy in the office, and let us know your interests and abilities. 
Your time and energy will be greatly appreciated!

Back to School Notes

1) If your 1st or 2nd grade student has recently outgrown pants, rain jackets or gently used shoes please bring them to the office.

2) Speaking of clothes, please label all coats, sweatshirts, sweaters, rain jackets, (basically anything that might be taken off at school) lunch boxes, water bottles, backpacks, etc.  Anything with a label will be a lot easier to get back to you when it is lost than if there is no name on it.

3) Bernadette is looking for some creative folks to help with bulletin boards and display cases. If you'd like to help with this please check in with her in the office

4) A reminder that the school supply contribution covers all the supplies purchased for your students from pencils, erasers, papers, to notebooks, rulers, and planners -  and it also covers the costs of field trips. By making the suggested contribution of $50 per student we can be sure to have plenty of supplies all year long. Don't forget a couple boxes of tissues as well. To the folks that ordered a case from Amazon to be delivered directly to the school last year thank you!

5) Soon after school begins, profile updates will be sent home so that you can update address, phone numbers, and emergency contacts.  If you moved recently, you will need to bring in original documents.  Please follow the following link to see what is required by the school district:

6) A Reminder that fidget spinners are not allowed at school at any time, so please leave them and all other toys at home.
