Emily MantineoPrincipal of Charlton Street School
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
I am honored to be writing to you as the principal of Charlton St. School. I have worked for Southbridge Public Schools for 25 years. I have taught elementary school for 19 years, was the elementary school information systems specialist for 3 years, and most recently was a math instructional resource specialist at CSS. I was born and raised in Southbridge and still reside here.
My goal is to provide leadership for the students and staff at Charlton St. School to continue the great work that we have been accomplishing at this school. I am committed to continuing the high standards that Charlton St. School is known for and providing support for families and students as needed.
I encourage parents to make every effort to have their child attend school on time. Students who are late miss the morning announcements and are behind on the morning routine which causes classroom interruptions, but more importantly causes stress in the child. Attendance is extremely important if a child is to succeed so we also need to keep the attendance rate at 96-97%. Thank you all for your cooperation in this matter.
Please feel free to contact Ms. Potter or me at any time with any questions.
We can be reached at the school or you can e-mail us at:
