    A Message from the Principal


    Hello Chief Charlo Families,

    Thank you all for your support of Chief Charlo!!!!  So many families have donated money and time to the FunRun and other activities and we all appreciate all you and your families and friends are doing.

    This Week’s Calendar  

    Monday, September 20th 

    Tuesday, September 21st 

    Wednesday, September 22nd 

    Thursday, September 23rd - Early Out (2:30pm)

    Friday, September 24th  - FunRun


    PTO Events  

    • Fun Run 
      • Volunteers will need to have completed paperwork on file by September 22nd - you can complete that paperwork online and if you would like to work with students without a staff member present, you will also need to complete a background check
      • Sept. 24th - FunRun day
      • There will be 3 separate tracks setup and each class will run its own FunRun (we will not be combining classes this year).
      • Spectators will not be allowed.  We do need up to 20 volunteers for the day so please contact Elyse Johnson at - chiefcharloptosec@gmail.com
      • Alternative to the Run - we know not everyone will feel comfortable running outside with their class, so we will offer students an alternate location to stay during the run and then ask that they run or walk with their family for 30 minutes that weekend.


    Parent Parking  

    • Please remember to park in areas that are designated for parents as to not interfere with busses.  There are cars parked too far down the curb where buses pull into the loop which makes it hard for the buses to park in a safe place for students board.


    • This year students are eating first and then going outside to play.  We do not have enough staff to be able to play first and then eat second. 
    • We are noticing that some students are not eating their lunches. The lunch staff walks around reminding students to eat and to converse after they are finished. Please talk with your student about the importance of lunchtime and that eating lunch will help them to learn in the afternoon.  Classroom teachers are also reminding their class as they head to lunch to eat first and then talk.

    - Ms. Zins
