A Way to honor a great teacher!
Recommendations sought for teachers to honor during Teacher Appreciation Week
During this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6), the U.S. Department of Education wants to extend a personal thank you to some great teachers. Help us by recommending a colleague, a friend, your child’s teacher, or the teacher who inspired you. While we cannot guarantee reaching every teacher during the week, we may use submitted information for other highlighting purposes throughout the year.
Another way to recognize someone, Chariho Employee of the month!
TIP: You can use the same letter to nominate a teacher for all three awards: our Crystal Apple Award, Chariho Employee of the Month and for the Department of Education!!!
No Medications carried by students
If a student has these items, they are subject to disciplinary action including Immediate dismissal from school, Three Days Suspension and Police Notification.
If you feel that you child needs these medications, please consult with our school nurse, Mrs. Coulson. These items need to be transported to school by an adult and need to be kept in the clinic.
Any prescription medication can only be administered by our nurse if it is brought in to us in the original bottle with label and a doctor's order.
PTO Outdoor Classroom Space Project
The first phase of the plan was completed on April 9th. Thank you to all of the parents, students and community members who came and helped to clear the space for future improvements. Another clean-up will be scheduled in a few weeks.
