Dear Parents and Guardians,
The PTO has 2 options available to those who would like to participate in the Charlestown School Directory this year. Please either fill out the attached document and return it to the school by November 20th or follow the link below and fill out our on-line form.
The CHARLESTOWN SCHOOL DIRECTORY is an effort by the Charlestown School PTO to providecontact information to the students and parents of our school. Being listed in the directory is completely voluntary and is only intended to help strengthen our school community. Submitting your information, however, does grant the Charlestown School PTO permission to publish this data for student, parent, and school use. Please provide ONLY the information you wish to have included in the school directory. This information will not be copied, sold, or distributed for any other reason. Use of this directory for commercial, political, or other purposes is strictly prohibited. (Only participants will receive a copy of the directory).

Parent Drop Off Reminders
Please help us to keep all students safe. Drop off is not allowed out front unless you are bringing your child in late. If so, please walk them into the school and sign them in at the office.
Comprehensive Assessment System Policy
Recently, the School Committee adopted a new policy aligned with our Comprehensive Assessment System. The policy details the use of assessments in the instructional cycle. It also speaks to the need to minimize and strategically use assessment results. Finally, the policy communicates the expectation that all students participate in all assessments (including state assessments - Grade 3 and 4 PARCC and Gr. 4 Science NECAP), unless a medical waiver has been obtained. You will find the policy at
Spring 2015 P.A.R.C.C. Results
State, district and school scores will be released to the public on November 17th. Individual student reports will be mailed to us in early December. The reports will be sent home with each 4th grader for parent review.
The PARCC Assessment for Spring 2016 has been shortened and will only include one testing window in April-May.
