  • Look It's My Book

    Students received one free book from the ladies of the Look It's My Book program. Students picked out an interesting story from grade-level choices to read and take home. The ladies help students decide between the many exciting options and hand each student a bookmark when they've made their decision. Students at Charter Oak are so grateful to bring these books home and share with their families about what they read!

  • STEM Projects

    Introducing the idea of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) to students was fun using a warm up project! Students in first grade split into teams to use the engineering process to build a structure that would hold at least one book up. Students planned, tested, redesigned, and built with their group to complete the task. Some realized the difficulties of working in a group, while others were challenged by the timing of their process. All of them LOVED how their structure was successful at the end. Classes are eagerly awaiting their next STEM based task while exploring manipulatives and activities rooted in science standards.

  • Junior Acheivement

    Volunteers for companies and organizations in the community started the Junior Achievement program this week at Charter Oak. Classes were visited by these guests who began teaching them about communities, the impact of money, and how to get involved in Peoria. Each student received a book and got to ask questions of the volunteer, as well as got to answer questions about what they know about their surroundings. First grade students enjoyed making a new friend from Caterpillar and learning about what role they have in their homes and jobs of the city. They can't wait for the next session to learn more!

  • Proposed facilities sales tax for building improvements

    On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Charter Oak Primary School.
