May 17, 2022 — The District's K-3 Counselor, Mrs. Erika Barnett, was awarded a grant from the Chardon Schools Foundation in fall 2021 to fund Parent Resource Bags for families in need. The bags debuted this spring as announced in school newsletters to Chardon Early Learning Center, Munson Elementary and Park Elementary schools.

What is a Parent Resource Bag?
A Parent Resource Bag contains age-appropriate reading materials and craft materials and can be requested by students' parents/caregivers as a supportive resource when experiencing loss of a loved one, loss of a pet, grandparents raising grandkids, divorce/family changes, and big feelings such as anger, sadness and worry.

How do Families Access this Resource?
Our K-3 families can contact Mrs. Barnett at 
[email protected] at any time to request a 2-week loan of a resource bag(s).

Thank you Chardon Schools Foundation for supporting family wellness!
