Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

March 11 to March 15

This Week's Highlights

Parent Night at Connect Charter School. Thank you School Council and Parent Society for organizing a great evening with a Subway dinner, a movie for students and parent learning together.


Thanks to parent volunteers, educational assistants and all staff who helped support last night’s event. We had a great turnout of parents for the upstairs program and the kids had so much fun downstairs at the movie. Look for a survey going out to participating parents, or shoot us your immediate feedback at
CELEBRATE – Connect turns 25 in 2024!
Save the dates for our next 25th Anniversary celebrations:
Parent Cocktail Party: Wednesday, April 24. Let’s get social! Join other parents, teachers and staff for a fun evening of cocktails off campus, nearby at the The Officer’s Club in Currie Barracks. Details to come. 
FEC Family BBQ: Saturday, May 25: 11am-3pm. Have fun at camp and enjoy lunch with the school community. This is an awesome opportunity to familiarize yourself with an important part of the Connect experience. Bus transportation will be provided from the school, or you can drive yourself.
