Good morning and Happy New Year!


I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday with your families!


Thank you to all of the families who braved the cold to meet me at the river to release our class pets.  We released nearly 80 salmon to the Rogue River.  This is one of the best hatchings I’ve had in ten years!


January – March is my favorite time of the school year.  This is where we really roll up our sleeves and get to work.  Our first big project is the author study.  Kids chose their authors yesterday.  The assignment description that I gave to them is copied and pasted to the bottom of the email.


The end of the month also brings us music and DARE will be starting soon.  Exhibition is scheduled for April 26th and kids will begin the process of brainstorming ideas in the coming weeks.  Busy times!


Our next field trip is the Josephine County tree plant on Friday, February 7th.  I will be looking for a handful of volunteers who don’t mind getting their hands dirty.


That’s all for now.  Have a great day!


About charles.hadley

Meet your teacher Hi! My name is Charles Hadley. I’m very excited to be your teacher this year. I know that we will have a great time exploring and learning here in room 10! Let me tell you about myself. I live in Central Point, but was born in Texas. I am married to a wonderful lady named Elizabeth and we have a five year old little girl named Kaitlyn and a 16 month old baby boy named Colton. One of my best friends is my big black dog named Major. He is so funny and I love to play with him. I started school going to Mae Richardson in Central Point. I then moved into Medford and went to Hedrick Middle School. There I played many sports and had a great time. From there I went to North Medford High School and played some football and ran track. You will soon understand that I love sports. You will probably see me and my wife at many local sporting events. My favorites are football, basketball, and golf. I have coached many basketball teams including Special Olympics for the past 15 years. I went to college at Southern Oregon University and graduated with a degree in Psychology. After that I went into the workforce did many jobs, including baking cookies at the Cookie Connection and driving tow trucks. After working for several years I discovered my love for teaching and went back to school and earned a masters degree in teaching. I have taught sixth, third, fourth, and fifth grades. I am happy to have you in our class and look forward to a challenging and fun year together. If you would like to know anything else about me just ask!
