Happy November!

The first quarter of the 2017-2018 school year has come to a close.  The quarter ended on October 20, 2017 with parent/teacher conferences the following week.  I hope you were able to touch base with your child's teachers during conferences to help build the relationship between home and school.  Your students success in school depends upon a solid home/school connection.  Please contact your child's teacher any time you have questions or concerns to share.

The High School Music Department will be putting on their annual musical the weekend of November 3, 4, & 5th.  The group has chosen to prepare and perform "The Wizard of Oz!"  The students put in countless hours of practice and always put on an entertaining show for their audiences.  We are excited to try out and show off our new sound system upgrades to the community.  Join us for a celebration of talent in Johnson Auditorium this weekend!

November is a busy month and it seems to go by quickly!  The winter sports season will be gearing up in the next couple of weeks and before you know it will be Thanksgiving!  Below is a section of the school calendar for the month of November.  The highlighted yellow dates are 90 minute early dismissals (November 1, 8, 15, & 29), the highlighted purple date (November 22) is a 3 hour early dismissal, and the highlighted green dates (November 23 & 24) are NO SCHOOL days.  Enjoy the time off with family and friends!

Winter weather will be approaching soon (hopefully later rather than sooner)!  The District utilizes the information in Infinite Campus to send emergency information to parents.  You can sign up through the parent portal for text, calls, and emails for any and all weather related schedule changes.  We also post the information on our webpage, TV stations 5, 8, & 13, and KIIC Radio.  You can reach the parent portal by visiting out website: www.chariton.k12.ia.us, click on the Infinite Campus button located on the top bar.    If you need help with your Infinite Campus parent portal, please call Peggy at the Central Office and she will provide you with some assistance. 

Have a fantastic November!
