Charlestown School Updates

For members of our learning community - Dec. 4th, 2015

Filling sails with knowledge and character for a successful life voyage

Report Cards sent home today, December 4th

Report cards were sent home with all students today. We will also mail copies to parents who live at a different residence. Please call the office if you need to update your address.

Please review the report carefully in advance of your scheduled parent-teacher conference next week. We have also included some information about our use of a standards based report card. Our goal is for all students to meet or exceed the standards by the end of the year. Given that we are only at the end of the first trimester, your child likely is still developing or approaching many of the standards.

PARCC Scoring reports arrived late this afternoon. They will be sent home next week with all current 4th graders who completed the assessment last Spring.

Parent Teacher Conferences - December 7th and 8th

Conference Days will be held on December 7th and 8th from 12:30-7:00 pm. Please contact your child's teacher if you haven't been notified of your scheduled conference time. We request that children not attend conferences unless you have discussed this with the teacher in advance. There is no school on these days.

Safety Drill Practice

Today we practiced our lock down procedures. If your child mentions this drill, please remind them that this is something that we practice to keep them safe. You can share that we use this procedure if we have an unknown adult in the building who hasn't signed in at the office.

Please, no toys at school

We request that students keep their toys at home and not bring them in to school unless requested for a class lesson or activity.
