Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

August 28 - September 1

This Week's Highlights

Staff spent the day planning curricular connections for fall camp.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Welcome Back BBQ on Thursday! 

RSVP & PRE-ORDER FOOD by August 29 – $5 per person for a complete meal! There will be limited on-site, cash-only items for sale. The best way to ensure you get a meal is to pre-order (and please bring your email confirmation). 

VOLUNTEER: Please help out by volunteering 1-2 hours of your time for the prep, grilling, serving or hosting at the check-in table. The online RSVP form has several volunteer slots listed. This is our largest volunteer activity of the year and its FUN – really! 

EVERYTHING is on ONE FORM hosted by Signup Genius:

Any questions? Let us know!


Teacher Presentations

Evan Ferguson, our Place Based Education Coordinator, will be hosting a fall camp information session on the Meet the Team night in the learning commons between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on the hour. We invite all families to attend one of these sessions to be informed so they can best support their child as they prepare to head to camp this fall.  Volunteers will also hear valuable information about fall camps.  If you are unable to attend the Meet the Team night, a video of Evan’s session will be emailed to families.


Note: We particularly need parent volunteers for grade 8 and 9 camps.  Please contact [email protected] if you have availability and police clearance.
