Pearl Harbor: Today marks the anniversary of one of the most infamous days in world history when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. It is always good to take stock of such occasions remembering the sacrifice of the sailors, soldiers, and airmen killed on that fateful day.
**Arlee is having a tough time finding people to help work games so there have been daily changes this week to the Junior High Girls BB Tournament. The latest we know of is that our girls play at 10:30 AM on Friday. We recommend talking to your players and coaches for the most up to date places and times.**
**There have also been daily changes to the High School BB Tournament in Deer Lodge/Anaconda because of schools unable to field teams. The latest we know is that the JV teams play at Noon on Friday and the Varsity teams play at 4 on Friday but this could change again before the day ends. We recommend talking to your players and coaches for the most up to date places and times.**
Winter Sports: Wrestling kicks off this weekend in Polson. High School basketball kicks off Dec. 8 while JHGB wraps up the same weekend. We will need help with score clocks, shot clocks, scorebooks, and ticket taking for basketball. If you can help us out please contact the office 644-2206 or email [email protected].
Athletic Schedules: We do not put out an athletic schedule for high school basketball as there are too many changes on a weekly basis. The reasons for those changes are teams who cancel JV games, shortage of referees, lack of bus drivers, etc. Already, Alberton has cancelled their entire girls basketball season due to lack of interest. The best way to keep up with the basketball schedule and the school schedule for that matter is to get on our school website which is https://charlo.k12.mt.us. At the top of the page click on calendars and you will then see an up to date monthly calendar. Changes in times and places are made on that calendar. As always please call the office 644-2206 if you have any questions.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has something to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. As for me, I am very thankful for the staff we have here at Charlo. They are some of the very best in the business when it comes to our community’s children. Whether it’s in the classroom, on the bus, or in the cafeteria our staff is second to none. I am thankful for our trustees who give it their best no matter the situation. Trustees have a thankless job but we should all be thankful that we have people willing to serve the community in such a way. I am thankful for the parents and community members who support our school, students, and staff. I am thankful for our students, especially those students who show up every day despite the challenges they face in today’s world. May all of you have a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!
Substitutes: We are so grateful for those on our substitute list but that list is a pretty short one. There has been plenty of illness going around with students and staff this month. There were several days we did not have enough subs to keep everything going like a normally staffed day. If you have any interest in helping us out, we are always looking for substitute teachers, bus drivers, custodians, and cooks to help fill in when regular employees have to be gone. If you would like to be on our substitute list please contact the office for more information at 644-2206. We could really use the help.
Breakfast/Lunch Bill: Please make sure you student’s meals are paid up in a timely fashion. The best practice is to pay ahead. If you have any questions please contact the office.
