THE THREE HOOTS
Picture day September 28!
This school year the students will raise salmon and then release them into Lake Michigan. This is a program through the DNR called Salmon in the Classroom. To kick off the program, Dave Clapp from the DNR did a salmon dissection with the classes. This was a great opportunity for the students to learn about the life cycle and anatomy of salmon.
We are continuing to learn about forces. The students have been exploring how things move. This week we will out to the playground and find evidence force, friction, motion and gravity.
Help Shape the Future of Our Schools!
Who is invited:
Community Members of Charlevoix
When: We have scheduled two opportunities to learn about our facility study.
Wednesday, October 5, 2016
Charlevoix Elementary School at 6:30 pm in the library.
(Tour of the elementary will be provided at 6pm)
Wednesday, October 12, 2016
Round Lake Educational Center at 6:30 pm in the Rayder Room.
(Tour of RLEC will be provided at 6pm)
Details: In February a Charlevoix Public Schools Facility Study Team was created. The objective was to research, study, and ultimately recommend a plan of action for both short-term and long-term facility planning to our CPS Board of Education. The Facility Study Team, the Charlevoix Board of Education, and Superintendent, Mike Ritter, felt it would be critical to share the findings with you and also seek your input. We will be offering these two community forum opportunities along with a community survey in November. It is our hope that with your help, we will determine the best plan for the future.
Reading and spelling homework will be handed out every Monday and due back on the following Monday. Homework will consist of reading weekly and math fluency practice. In addition, your child will be assigned a book share. Book shares will be introduced near the end of September.
