Fall Campus Cleanup

We are so grateful to all of the families, students, staff members, and community partners who came together on Saturday to spruce up our campus. We have such a beautiful school, but this amazing team of people made it even better! Take a look at some of the photos from the cleanup event. Special thanks to Church at Charlotte for organizing this event and to everyone who volunteered their time to help make Idlewild sparkle!

The REAL MEN of Idlewild

This team is working to support our awesome school and positively impact children. On September 27, some of them served on the car rider line and it was incredible. We'd love to have more dads, uncles, grandpas, older brothers, male family friends, and more join in--the next meeting is October 17.

School Bond

An important issue affecting our students and staff will come before voters Nov. 7 with the $922 million Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bond proposal. If the bond is approved, CMS would build 17 new schools and provide renovations or additions to 12 others.


Our school would benefit through reduced overcrowding because of the addition of new schools.


The bond would significantly impact learning—providing state-of-the-art technology and classrooms and learning spaces that encourage collaboration and flexibility, equipping students for success in the 21st century.


Seventy-eight percent of CMS schools are at or over capacity and many were built in the 1950s. The bond would relieve overcrowding throughout the district.


For more information on the CMS school bond, please select the link below.


To vote in the November election, you can register to vote until Oct. 13. Same-day, in-person registration and voting can be done Oct. 19-Nov.4. To learn more, visit the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections website.

Do you ever wonder what your children can do at home to continue their education after the school day ends?


If so, below are screen shots that will show families how to help their children access the amazing sites CMS has purchased for students this year. If you do not know your child's Student ID# or password, please contact their teacher; we'd be happy to assist you with that information.

Digital Citizenship

Idlewild students recently completed a unit of study on digital citizenship, and have learned how to be responsible, respectful and safe in an online environment.
