Gratitude, celebrations and graduation at Charlotte Central School

Throughout the year, the Champlain Valley School District schools have embraced the vision: “We are a learning community focused on growth and belonging for all.”

In this spirit, the Charlotte Central School staff and administration appreciate the partnership and collaboration that makes the Charlotte Central School learning experience. Thanks to the caregivers and community members who volunteer their time, their passions and their expertise to enrich the school day for every student. The mentors, the extra hands at recess and in the cafeteria, and the volunteers supporting special projects are all crucial to meeting individual needs and enriching experiences for learners. 

On June 7, the eighth graders received carnations from the kindergarten students in the school’s Carnation Ceremony. During this all-school meeting, a video was shown capturing some memories of the kindergarten and eighth grade partnership. 

The Champlain Valley Union Rise program brought former Charlotte Central School graduates to the school to support learners. Some CVU students were in classrooms helping students and teachers.

The Charlotte Central School PTO recently dispersed grant funds for many enrichment opportunities in classrooms, and the school is incredibly grateful for this support — both the fundraising and the ways the organization helps teachers. 

The Charlotte Central School Fun Run & Spring Potluck is a tradition at Charlotte Central School. The event is not only a great community event, but also a fundraiser.

During the potluck, the PTO will raffle off baskets. This year, students will receive 10 tickets to put towards the raffle baskets of their choice. Raffle tickets will not be sold. Instead, families are asked to contribute towards the raffle. 

Charlotte Central School eighth-grade graduation is Thursday, June 13. Please note the change in times:

  • 5:30 p.m., family connection time in the multi-purpose room
  • 6 p.m., parents and guests move to the gymnasium
  • 6:15 p.m., procession of graduates.

Summer construction at Charlotte Central School
Projects for this summer include:

  • Install sprinkler lines on the second floor and finish the installation in the multi-purpose room, the stage and the gym. 
  • Demolish and remodel the seventh and eighth grade restrooms.
  • Complete the updated electrical system, moving all primary connections to the new mechanical room and connect the generator.
  • A state grant to address stormwater will include perimeter drains being added at the front of the building. This project may include removing the play castle and outdoor stage and replacing the basketball courts. The plans will be finalized after the bids are evaluated. 
  • Paint and carpet first-floor rooms. The scope of this work is still being determined.
