A look inside Homecoming students at Washington Elementary School at homecoming gathering

Homecoming was made extra special for students at Washington Elementary School when the Charles City High School  sent students from various groups and the Charles City High School marching band to the elementary school on Homecoming Friday.


Students were greeted at the door by their elder Comets and learned what school spirit is all about.


Text Message Opt-In text messaging on phone

The Charles City Community School System uses a variety of communication tools to keep you informed about what’s happening at school. We transitioned this year to a new school text messaging, email, and phone calling system called School Messenger.


In order to receive text messages from this system you have to “opt-in”. If you have given us a mobile phone number as your contact, on September 30, around 10 AM you will receive a message from 68453 asking you to reply with ‘Y’. If you would like to receive text messages from the school please follow these instructions. The typical message is when we change plans due to weather. If you have questions please e-mail us.
