Our first PTO Meeting of the school year was well-attended by 25 parents last Tuesday evening. If you weren’t able to join us, please check out the 9/20 PTO Meeting Minutes.
Activities to look forward to this week are:
- Parent French Night on Tuesday
- Garden Club beginning on Wednesday
- Continuing to help your kids sell Gift Wrap/Innisbrook products. This fundraiser earned us over $9,000 last year. That’s almost a tenth of our fundraising efforts! Our goal this year is $10,626 – Let’s go for it!!!
Your PTO Co-chairs,
Becky Smith and Larisa Lilles
Online Parent Volunteer Checklist sign-up still needs you!
How do you want to get more involved at Charlemagne? Charlemagne encourages all parents to volunteer ten hours of their time through out the school year. This online sign-up replaces the hard copy form we all used to fill out at the beginning of the school year. If you haven’t already, please sign-up now. Nothing shows your kids how important school really is more than you helping out! To sign-up, click HERE.

Charlemagne After-School Club News
Signup sheets are now in the office for Garden Club. This fall the club will be run by the School Garden Project. They manage school gardens all over town and do an amazing job. Meetings will be on Wednesdays from 2:45-3:45pm. Session 1 runs from September 28th through October 26th. Session 2 runs from November 2nd through November 30th. Each session is limited to 10 students, 1st through 5th grade. (Kinders may join in the spring.) You can signup for one or both sessions. We are pleased to be able to offer a sliding scale fee of $5-25 per student per session. Please pay Mme Heather in the office.
Garden Club is also looking for people with pickup trucks or trailers who would be willing to help haul material to our garden in the next couple of weeks. Contact Tabatha (firstname.lastname@example.org, 344-0901) or Erika (email@example.com, 852-3394). Stay tuned for more garden info in upcoming newsletters!
