Dear Charlemagne Families,

Our Beautiful Garden
We had a great turnout and beautiful weather for our first All School Play Date and Garden Party. The garden looks great. Classrooms will plant winter cover crops in their respective beds next week.

Tuesday – 1st Grade to Deterings Orchard 
On Tuesday, Madame Christelle and Madame Paquin’s classes will travel to Deterings Orchard. It looks like the weather will be perfect for visiting the pumpkin patch.

Wednesday – Site Council Meeting
This year, the Charlemagne Site Council will focus on creating a dynamic learning community based on our five interpersonal attributes; Respect, Empathy, Cooperation, Inclusion and Integrity. Site Council will focus creating a strong, articulated  K-5 math program based on the State of Oregon’s new Common Core Math Standards.

Thursday – Poinsettia and Wreath Fundraiser
On Thursday we will kick off our annual Poinsettia/Wreath fundraiser. More info to come…

Friday – No School State Wide Inservice Day (Furlough Day)
For most districts throughout the state, this Friday is a time for teachers to attend conferences and professional development activities. However, due to budget cuts Friday, Oct. 12 is a non- work/Furlough day for all Eugene District 4J employees. All schools and district offices will be closed on Friday.

See the attached La Semaine à Charlemagne Oct 8-12 for specific times and dates of next weeks activities and for our full year at a glance calendar.
