*Don't Forget! Curriculum Night for Grades 2-5, This Thursday, 9/14, 6:00-7:30pm*
A: How Can I Help?
Q: What is a frequently asked question in the hallways of Charter Oak International Academy?
You don't need professional researchers to tell you children benefit in so many ways from watching their parents and caregivers volunteer at school. It is a simple matter of leading by example.

At Charter Oak we know that our families want to get involved but may be unsure if they can make volunteer work fit into their busy work schedules or with younger children at home. One thing is certain, the events and activities planned by the Charter Oak PTO are not possible without YOU.
Just ONE HOUR a Year
Can you offer your school One Hour per year of your time? Look in your weekly newsletter for any volunteer opportunities and email charteroakpto@gmail.com with any questions.

Picture Day - Wednesday (9/27)
We need your help to keep things organized for the photographers from Coffee Pond Photography. Are you able to volunteer an hour of your time Wednesday morning? Your Charter Oak community thanks you!

Weekly Salad Bar begins this Wednesday (9/13)!
Filled with fresh veggies, the salad bar is a great reminder for our students that no packaging is needed when nature is in charge.

It can be hard to choose so volunteers are needed to help especially our youngest students. Contact our Deep Roots team, who coordinates the schedule.
International Day of Peace 2017
Peace Day is a celebration we take very seriously at Charter Oak. Our celebration will take place Wednesday, 9/20, at 8:30am. Every year students put their thinking and creativity into decorating a pinwheel which is placed around the playground. Please make time to honor Peace Day and listen as our children tell us what Peace means to them.

How do you find peace every day?
Share it with us and we will share it here next week (anonymously if you prefer) along with more information on Peace Day around the world. Email us: charteroakpto@gmail.com
