A Note from Mrs. Phillips

Dear Charles Families:


It's with a fully refreshed and recharged mind, body and spirit that I say welcome back! Springtime is a very busy time in education but also a great reminder to enjoy the scenery around you and take in each moment. Your child has almost completed the entire school year during a pandemic. It is with your support and our wonderful Charles family that we are still going strong and will finish the year on May 27th. Before that date, there is much to accomplish!


We just finished IREAD and scores will be shared with parents soon. ILEARN for 3rd and 4th graders begins April 19th. Please check out the link below for more information on the ILEARN test.


As we finish our year, we are still adjusting our guidance with the local health department. Pre-K and Kindergarten registration will still be drive up only. You may bring your birth certificates, proof of residency and shot records for copying. If you have an incoming pre-k or kindergarten student to register, please drive through our front circle on April 22 between 3:30- 6:30 pm.


We will also hold our end of the year ceremonies virtually as of now. If things change, I will notify you. Our hope is to record these events and share them via social media. Our Boston Run will also be virtual. If your child is participating, Mr. Higgins will communicate the practice schedule.


We have a district-wide Title I event the week of April 12-18th. Please be on the look out for the link on Dojo and Social Media. This will be a great family fun time. It is also time to gain your input on our Title programs. You may join me virtually on April 19 or Mrs. Sonsini during our PTO meeting that evening. A mailing will be sent home soon in regards to our Title programs and event information.

April 2: March Student of the Month

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!


Be kind, be amazing, and be YOU!
