Chartertown- NOW HIRING

Are you looking to be part of a team that makes a difference in the school?

If so, Chartertown may be right for you!

*Applications are available in the R & D Center* 

            Chartertown (C-town) is a micro-society open to students in 2nd-5th grade.  Students who work in the program are paid in C-town dollars, which can be used in the C-town Market, the Up-N-Atom Café, and for incentives offered exclusively to C-town employees. There are two sessions of C-town per year, and we are ready to hire for Session I. 

            Mrs. Judson manages Chartertown in the mornings, and Mrs. Beeler manages Media Chartertown in the afternoons and helps with paperwork.  C-town is unique to our school, and the opportunity to work in any of these positions gives the students a sense of empowerment and ownership in our school.
