A Message From the PTO Co-Presidents...
Charter Oak is a beautiful school ( school map, drop-off and pick-up procedures here) but it is only when our children are roaming the halls that we feel its true potential. We can't wait to welcome you all on the First Day of School, this Wednesday, 8:30am! We will also welcome PreK/K families this Monday at 3:00pm near the Compass Rose (main playground).

Did you enjoy the inaugural issue of our 2017/18 newsletter? We hope you find even more helpful information this week. As always, please contact us with any comments or suggestions.

See you Wednesday!

Peace & Sustainability
at Charter Oak
(Artwork made by Charter Oak students using re-purposed bottle caps)

Did you know Charter Oak was awarded a grant last year to purchase real metal forks, spoons and knives? That's means there will be about 90,000 fewer plastic utensils being thrown in the trash this year.

This is PEACE and SUSTAINABILITY at Charter Oak - where we support and share the understanding that we are all connected to each other and the earth and that we will be the ones to work together to make it better.
