September 14 Weekly Updates and Information
Published on Sep 14, 2019 12:15

Hello everyone, 

Our staff and students have settled into routine well.  I’m happy to announce that our classrooms were able to remain unchanged, there will be no “reshuffling” of classes.  This allows our staff and students to continue with the forward momentum of learning that has already begun. Looking forward to another wonderful year at St. Charles!

~ Ms. Medve-Racine

Open House:

Thursday September 19 is our school Open House from 5-7pm.  This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child's teacher, visit the classroom and meet other families.
Be sure to sign up on School-Day if you’d like to order  pizza or water to enjoy that evening.

PA Day:

Friday September 27 is a PA Day - no school for students on this day
