We R Charles

September 2022

Charles Families,

It has been a wonderful start to another amazing school year at Charles. It was my first year to be part of the Flag Raising Ceremony. It was such a great feeling to be part of such an incredible tradition to kick off the year. Although it has only been the first month of school, we have had so many events and activities. This includes the world famous chocolate sale, NWEA testing, a new math curriculum, and top notch teaching in every classroom. We are going to continue to lead the way in all areas and continue to be a premier elementary school.

It is my pleasure to serve our Charles Families. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. Together, we will make this year great!!

Mr. Steve Jones





World Famous Chocolate Sale:

Please make sure you turn in any money or left over chocolate into the school by Thursday September 1. We would like to close the books by Friday so we can celebrate with the top sales people.

Morning routines:

The school doors open at 7:15 Monday - Friday. Students will not be permitted in the building until 7:15 AM. The last morning bell rings at 7:50. Students arriving after 7:50 will be marked tardy. At 7:50 door #17 will be closed and all students coming in need to come to the front door and report directly to the office. Parents do not need to walk their students into the building. Please remember when your child is late, they are losing out on valuable learning.


If your student is going to be absent, please call the office to let us know. If your student is running a fever, throwing up, or has diarrhea please keep them at home. We want to try our best to keep all of our students healthy.

Transportation Changes:

If you are going to change how your student is going home, please contact the office 765-973-3441. This needs to be done before 1:00 of that day. We would like to ensure all of our students arrive to their destination safely.

Title I Meeting:

We will hold our school Title I Meeting on Friday, September 16th at 10 AM and again at 4 PM in the library at Charles. The District Title I meeting will be held on September 12 at 10am and 4PM at central office.

Building Entry:

We are going to continue to limit the number of people entering the building. In the event your students forgets something, we have a table just inside the main doors you can leave a note on it and leave it on the table and we will deliver it for you to your student. We appreciate your help and understanding in keeping our students safe.


Charles as well as many other Richmond Community Schools are continuing to look for good candidates for unfilled positions. This includes bus drivers, teachers, and assistants. If you are interested you can apply at werrichmond.com.
