A Note from Mrs. Phillips

Dear Charles Families:


Brrrr, we sure have had some really cold days this week. As we continue to experience winter temperatures and snow, please consider dressing your child in layers. Our rooms may change temperatures according to what's going on outside. Coats, hats, gloves, and scarves are all available through our partnership with CIS. If you need anything, please let us know. Mrs. Ream has many amazing resources and can assist your family during this cold weather.


We currently have 3 elearning days your child is responsible for in order to be counted as present. Please connect with your child's teacher if you are having troubles or need paper/pencil copies. We have some really great things being done in our modules, and I hope these days are valuable to you and your family. We are trying to get an entire day's worth of learning in 2 hours but remember you have 5 school days to complete. Our lab will always be open the 5 days after the announcement of an elearning day, until 4 PM. Please make arrangements for transportation if your child needs help completing their modules. Our teachers will monitor the work and will inform me of completion. I will be calling parents if I see work is not done in order to help understand what you need to complete the work. These days will only count if we maintain a certain percentage of attendance as a district. I am here to help, just ask.


We have many activities before and after school. Thank you for getting your child to these events, I know it's above and beyond our school day. I want to wish the Math Bowl good luck on their upcoming competition. I also want to send a huge thank you to Ms. Bartlemay for all the work she puts into Choir and Circle the State. They will perform next Saturday, February 9th at New Castle.


As always, I'm here if you need anything. I try my best to put things out there on Dojo and Social Media. If there is anything else I can do better, please let me know. You can send a personal message via Dojo, Facebook or Twitter. You may also email me or call the office. That information is found below. Have a great month Chargers, and I look forward to seeing how we can demonstrate Service!


Be kind, be amazing, and be YOU!
