Author Tricia Springstubb Visits Munson Elementary
All Munson students were treated to a visit from local author Tricia Springstubb this past week. She shared her experiences in generating ideas for writing, the proofreading and editing process, as well as how she coordinates with her illustrators to see a book through to its final publication.
Students enjoyed hearing about her books, “Phoebe and Digger,” “Mo Wren, Lost and Found” and “What Happened on Fox Street.”
Special thanks goes to the Munson PTO for providing this enrichment opportunity for the students.
Substitute Help Needed in School Cafeterias
Chardon Local Schools Food Service maintains a list of substitutes to be called in when the regular employees are out. Substitutes are a vital part of the program. Using subs gives the cafeteria the help that it needs when employees are unable to work and lets the subs explore job opportunities with the Chardon Local Schools Food Service department.
Cafeteria substitutes are called to fill in for absent employees and work as needed. There are no guaranteed days or hours. Salary is $9 per hour.
Applications are available at the School Administration Building, 428 North St., located next to Chardon Middle School.
Stay Safe – Speak Up
Stay Safe – Speak Up! is an online system to report issues that affect students’ safety or education.

It is available all day, every day.
Support Services Available At Chardon Elementary Schools
Recognizing the importance of students’ emotional needs and concerns, Chardon Schools will be providing counseling services at the four elementary schools this year. The services are being paid for through grants.
Elizabeth Thomas, LSW, MSSA, will be serving each of Chardon’s elementary schools one day a week. Some of the topics she can help students with are feeling awareness, building coping skills, peer relationships, social skill building and family changes.
With the help of grants, the elementary school will be able to provide the following services: individual student support, family support, small group support, linkage and coordination with community resources and consultation with school staff. The schools will be able to provide school-based counseling, with parental consent and involvement.
For more information, call your child’s school office.
