L'Ecole Charlemagne Monthly Update

September 2018

Et nous avons commencé!

Bonjour les familles!

We hope you've had a wonderful first few days of school! It was great to see everyone last week at our back-to-school social and we look forward to the many ways in which we will celebrate our French immersion community this year.

The coming week will move us more fully into the rhythm of the school year. We hope you've signed up for the weekly e-news via our website: http://charlemagne.4j.lane.edu/. Important school news will arrive in your email at the start of every week so you can be more informed about events and opportunities. This monthly newsletter will be sent at the at the beginning of each month to provide an additional perspective and a global view of our school vision, purpose and core values.

We look forward to the year ahead and welcome your energy and commitment to Charlemagne!

New School Handbook for 2018-19

We are pleased to share with families a newly updated school handbook for 2018-19. You can click on the link or access the document here:


We created this handbook with the intention of welcoming families, providing an overview of our purpose and outlining some important policies and practices at our school. Of note are the first few pages that outline our purpose and program and the last few pages which provide an overview of French Immersion K-12.

This document is ever-evolving and if you have observations or questions, please don't hesitate to be in contact with us!

Supporting Charlemagne

Our school is a unique gem within our district and city. Indeed, the longevity and success of our program is the result of years of hard work, the dedication of staff and families, and a commitment to immersion education, crucially important for our students' futures.

Your student's French immersion education requires additional support to ensure a quality curriculum and experience. From your involvement in our classrooms to your generous financial support, your donations of time and funds enable us to hire additional teachers, bring French-speaking interns to our school, and provide important language interventions for all students.

In the weeks to come, we'll be sharing more information about how you can support Charlemagne in a number of different community-minded ways. We look forward to your active participation in our school... in any form that takes!
