Why Family Dine Out Events?

In lieu of our in person events, the PTO will be hosting a variety of dine out opportunities over the next several months. Please feel free to support as you see fit for your family's schedule and ability. Share info with others you know. Their meals will help support Chief Charlo as well.

Families in Transition Coordinator - Rm 233

The Families in Transition (FIT) Program is here to assist Chief Charlo students and families experiencing housing instability (McKinney-Vento Act) and/or economic hardship. FIT works as a bridge between those families, our school and the district staff to empower students to stay in school and remain successful both in school and as lifelong learners. FIT also provides families access to community resources and services.

FIT is here to support your family, because we care about all of our Wolves - BIG and small!!

I look forward to assisting you!

Sign Up for Toys For Tots with The Salvation Army

Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts for hundreds of thousands of children around the country each year. Once a child or senior adult has been registered and accepted as an Angel their Christmas wish list is shared with donors in your community who purchase gifts of new clothing and toys. The gifts are distributed to the family to place under their family Christmas tree.

If you have any questions please contact Ryan Boyd at
