Impressive student projects at Charlotte Central School

Charlotte Central School students have had a number of opportunities lately to research and explore their favorite topics.

Seventh and eighth grade students have created code to have bots the size of golf balls complete an obstacle course.

Third graders have written and presented persuasive essays about what students see as essential steps to create peace in the world.

The fifth graders who are the Charlotte Central School spelling champions attended the statewide championship and took along their own cheering section.

Middle schoolers are engaging in afterschool activities, such as theater or co-curricular sports.
