Today was a wonderful day at Charlotte Avenue School, as we said farewell to our 5th Grade students. They are a wonderful group of students and they are sure to make a positive impact on the Middle School. I know that they will do well as long as they continue to focus on all they have learned while they were at CAS. To our returning students we will be busy preparing and getting excited for your return in September!
This has been an amazing year, for all of us. Our students, staff, and community embraced the theme of, "I Make the Difference". We concentrated each and everyday on making a difference in both small and big ways.This was accomplished as staff and students alike looked for ways to recognize positive behavior choices with character awards; as we raised $21,000 for Bald for Bucks; as well as focusing in on being the type of people we want to be around each and every day. CAS is the Best because of the people in this community. I know this personally, as you have embraced and supported me over the past two years. My family and I truly appreciate this amazing community. As some of you know my family had very exciting news as I was married in April. It has been wonderful sharing my excitement with your children. They have been wonderful, and very cute, as they worked on remembering my new name.
Please take few minutes and ask your child about our summer reading incentive program. Each and every student has their own pass code to log in and register their minutes read each day. Summer reading supports a strong academic year. Many children have a hard time acclimating themselves back to school in September. Maintaining reading over the summer helps to reduce this backslide. This will "Make the Difference" in every child!
I know that I speak for every CAS staff member when I say thank you for your support and for sharing your children with us. We truly consider it to be an honor.
