First off, a huge merci to Karen Stapleton and Charis Allenbaugh for coordinating last weeks Science Fair. We had great participation from all grade levels and we can all agree that the creativity and curiosity displayed by our students was truly impressive. Bravo Charlemagne!
It’s finally here! Happening this Friday, April 12th @ 6 pm, we are excited to host our annual school benefit at the Downtown Athletic Club. It’s going to be a memorable evening filled with dinner, drinks and a delectable dessert dash! Not to mention all of the incredible auction packages donated by our generous community.
Remember, all of our PTO proceeds directly fund EA’s and interns for our classrooms. We need your support to meet our goal for next year’s staffing plan!
Tickets are on sale! Once you purchase your ticket you can browse our extensive auction catalog. Limited space is available for on-site childcare so reserve your spot today.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
Incredible trips, unique dinner parties, and lots of fun activities for the kids. This year’s auction will have something for everyone.
There will be champagne, a delicious buffet dinner and dessert dash!
On-site childcare is available at the DAC.
Tickets are $40 ($45 day of event)
This year’s Soiree will raise money for assistants and interns for our classrooms in order to maintain our low student to teacher ratios.
As parents, you know assistants provide an integral service by: assisting in classrooms, reducing our student to teacher ratio, providing supervision on the playground, and sharing French culture. They also help to reduce distractions, workload, and stress for teachers and students.
Recently, we’ve noticed an uptick in more physical behavior at recess. This is not uncommon for the springtime as students grow more comfortable and secure in their school setting; however, we expect students to follow all schools rules, no matter where they are on campus.
As a result, over the past two weeks, we’ve addressed this several ways:
Teachers have re-taught playground expectations and rules a number of times, including reviewing “Stop, Walk, and Talk.”
I met with our Educational Assistants to discuss and plan for safe recesses.
Please help us support positive behavior by reminding your student to be safe, respectful and responsible and by reviewing the playground rules attached.
I expect to see more positive interactions and reinforcement from our supervision staff, more active supervision and increased documentation of behaviors so that we can address concerns more immediately. If your student shares anything with you about recess at home, please let me know. Your child’s safety and happiness at school are our top priorities– along with learning French, of course!– and working with students in the moment is much more effective and efficient.

Many thanks for your continued help and support!

Treetop Academics After School Science Enrichment:
For the 2018/2019 school year, Treetop Academics will offer after-school classes to 1st-5th grade Charlemagne students in Science. We provide academically enriching project-based opportunities that put students at the center of learning. Our on-site after-school Charlemagne Science class is designed to inspire kids to explore & create, use their faculties to the best of their individual ability, and test their theories about their own learning through practice, exploration, and support. In all our programs, your child will be engaged in daily project-based curriculum and activities with a focus on learning and having fun while doing it!
Each term Treetop Academics will offer a different themed Science class for students, on-site at your school. Please see our website with updated information about this term’s Science subject, online registration, and cost. Our no-school day events (‘Hackathons‘) are also open to Charlemagne students, as well as any ‘extended-year’ summer camps.
We are dedicated to providing meaningful, hands-on, project-based, and student-centered educational opportunities through best teaching practices and age-appropriate curriculum to your elementary school students.
