The mighty eagle is quite striking to see soaring. Their presence, eyes, and awareness makes them an indelible part of our country.
Tomorrow is a day where we pause and reflect on patriotism. The last several months have been very trying for all of us. Through good and difficult times we must look to the sky and see the eagle soaring and be reminded of its vision, courage, and perseverance.
It is hard to even fathom that over a generation of learners have crossed the halls across of our nation never fully experiencing our response as a country to the events of September 11, 2001. Most of us can recall where we were, and who was around us that day. Every student in our district learns about that day from indirect perspective.
As you come together this weekend with your family and friends-remember, recall, and embrace the little things in front of you...for they matter the most- family.

Chardon Students Learn New Technology

The students learned from Mr. Dave Jevnikar of GTV about the opportunities they will have to create dynamic images and videos in their class.

Topper Time Manual
This manual is to best prepare all students with the use of Topper Time. It was shared with staff and students.
Topper Time is necessary part of the infrastructure of our bell schedule. With the eighth graders eating lunch during 5A, ninth graders in Freshman Mentoring, our students in grades 10-12 need a place to call home in their day. Rather than just making this place for twenty minutes to be with students, Topper Time is an opportunity for students to have a brain break, receive intervention, and to develop relationships with their teacher and other students in a small “home”. The pandemic pushed paused to deploy the Senior Capstone Projects within this time period. As we transition in 2021-2022, the redeployment of these locally defined graduation seals are essential with the Class of 2022 on this pathway, and fully for the class of 2023.

CMS PTO: Mum Fundraiser
9/11 Memorial: A Callery pear tree became known as the "Survivor Tree" after enduring the September 11, 2001 terror attacks at the World Trade Center. In October 2001, the tree was discovered at Ground Zero severely damaged, with snapped roots and burned and broken branches. The tree was removed from the rubble and placed in the care of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. After its recovery and rehabilitation, the tree was returned to the Memorial in 2010. New, smooth limbs extended from the gnarled stumps, creating a visible demarcation between the tree’s past and present. Today, the tree stands as a living reminder of resilience, survival and rebirth.
