Chardon Library Hosts End of Summer Ice Cream Social for Chardon Book Buddies Program

Chardon Library recently hosted its end of Summer Ice Cream Social on Chardon Square for participants of the Chardon Book Buddies Program. Young patrons completed at least six 1-hour sessions with an older Book Buddy throughout the summer. Thank you, Chardon Rotary Club for your continued generosity in providing the ice cream and a Shel Silverstein book for each participant every year! And thank you to all of our wonderful volunteer reading buddies.

Students in Michelle Burress’ third grade class at Munson Elementary are having fun exploring communities using the Nearpod App. Nearpod’s virtual field trips allows the students to venture out of the classroom and entices them to want to learn more. Students can explore museums, wonders of the world, national monuments, cities, world heritage sites, landmarks – the list is endless! The students were visiting Times Square in New York City.

Turn Used Markers Into Energy

All around Chardon Middle School, students and teachers are collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!  CMS teacher Jackie Brown is coordinating this effort. If you have markers to donate she can be reached at

Late-Start Wednesdays at Chardon High School

The purpose of Late-Start is for our teachers to meet in teams to discuss essential questions within their Professional Learning Communities (Teacher Based Teams). This time assigned for the teachers is best practice and has become a staple for teacher collaboration for the past two decades at Chardon High School. Buses run at the usual time on Wednesdays. Available staff, Admin, Counselors, and the School Resource Officer will  monitor the cafeteria and gym. This is where students report and are then supervised during this time. Test Make-Ups will run from 7:15 a.m. – 8:55 a.m. on every Wednesday. Classes begin at 9:02 a.m. Parents can drop their children off at school between 6:55 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. on Wednesdays using the main entrance.  Please be mindful that Chardon Middle School parents are dropping off their children between 7:40 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. down the main entrance of our school.

Students in Becky Mele’s fifth grade class at Chardon Middle School are using their inquiry skills to think like scientists.

After Prom Needs You!

Chardon After Prom committee is composed of parents whose ultimate goal is to provide a fun, safe, drug and alcohol free event for high school juniors and seniors and their guests to go to after prom.  We provide concessions at football, soccer, and basketball games  and these profits are used completely for the after prom event.  Any parent in the Chardon Local Schools can be a part of this committee and in any capacity that fits into their lives. Some ways to be involved include helping at the concessions, coming to meetings (2nd Tuesday of every month), planning and preparing for After Prom, and working at the actual event.  We would love to have you join us and get to know who we are and what we are all about.  Please email us to be included in our communications.  Also be sure to follow us on Facebook and twitter (@CAfterprom).  This is a great way to be involved in your kid’s school life!
