Dear Parents,

Gift Wrap
Last Friday we kicked off the 12-13 Fundraising season with our annual Gift Wrap assembly. Students are excited to support their school by selling Gift Wrap for the holiday season.

Back to School Picnic Cancelled
In an effort to slow things down just a bit we have decided to cancel the “Back to School” picnic originally scheduled for Friday, September 21st.  We are currently discussing the possibility of having our Annual Back to School Picnic and Open House together on the day before school starts next year.

Facilities
Eugene School District is considering an exciting, long term, district wide plan to improve our aging facilities. Superintendent Berman and the School Board have organized a series of community forums to elicit input from citizens throughout Eugene School District. I am hoping that the Charlemagne Community is well represented at the following community forum.

Building 4J’s Future: Community Forum      September 27, 2012 – 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Location: Chávez Elementary School cafeteria, 1510 W. 14th Ave.

Eugene’s school buildings are aging. Most are more than 50 years old. Many older buildings are costly to heat and maintain and aren’t well designed to support student learning. It’s time to prioritize these needs and update the long-range plan for the future of our schools.

The district wants to hear from parents, staff and community members about their views on how to proceed.

Four community forums will be held around the district. Spanish interpretation will be provided.

  • Thu., Sept. 27, Chávez Elementary School
  • Mon., Oct. 1, North Eugene High School
  • Thu., Oct. 4, Cal Young Middle School
  • Wed. Oct. 10, Chávez Elementary School
