    MEETING 21st CENTURY NEEDS WITH OUR FACILITIES
     
    Vincent Giammona, Principal
     
    Welcome to Smart Schools 2020, a system wide initiative to create school facilities that provide students with the security, technology and dynamic learning environment they need to achieve in school and in life. As your principal, I'm pleased to say that Chief Charlo Elementary School is part of that initiative and is planning significant and much-needed changes over the next few years. 
     
    Chief Charlo Elementary School, though one of the District's newer buildings, is still 20 years old and serves approximately 450 students.  A redesigned entry and waiting area, including a schoolwide intercom system, will address important safety issues to better serve students and families.
     
    Our proposed option to redesign the entry, add a schoolwide intercom system, and open up classroom space through connected rooms will serve the needs of the students, staff and parents.  It matches our focus on 21st century teaching and learning, is limited in scope and enhances student safety.
     
    In order to address these key issues, Chief Charlo Elementary School has conducted a thoughtful scoping process and is proposing an option that will reconfigure areas to improve learning environments.
     
    We invite you to learn more about the plan, and get involved in shaping the future of education for our children.  Please feel free to email vmgiammona@mcps.k12.mt.us or call me with questions.
