Dear Charlemagne Families

New Principal Selection
This Tuesday, Sara Cramer, Director of Elementary Education, and Karen Harden, Human Resources administrator will meet with the Charlemagne staff to develop a “Profile” of qualities and characteriistics they would like to see in Charlemagne’s next principal. We are tentativley scheduled to interview candidates during the week of May 20 – 24. The interview team will consist of 3 teachers, 2 classified staff, 2 parents (PTO rep. and Site Council rep.) Sara Cramer and Director of Human Resources, Celia Feres- Johnson. The interview team will recommend their top choices for a second interview with Superintendent Berman and other district staff. The Eugene School Board will make the final decision. I am optimistic that your next principal will reflect Charlemagne’s long held traditions,values and beliefs and will help us to become stronger and more dynamic every year.

Christelle will teach English Language Arts to both 3rd grade classes and Michele will continue to teach Math & Science to both 3rd grade classes. Christelle and Michele are in the process of designing the French Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and  P.E. portions of the curriculum. We are looking forward to a strong emphasis on French language throughout the day in both classrooms. We are also looking forward to hiring a new 1st grade teacher and a new 4th or 5th grade teacher for next year. Both positions will be posted this week with interviews happening May 27 – June 7.
