Dr. Melanie-Jo McCarthy-Frick

Welcome to Charles Kelly Elementary School where every student and staff member is truly “Owlsome!” We pride ourselves on our approach to implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports through a myriad of positive recognitions and rewards. Each month, through our Student of the Month assembly, select students are recognized for a specific character trait that they have displayed throughout the school day. During our Student of the Month assembly, specific classrooms are recognized and receive the Silver Slipper, Silver Spoon, Silver Sneaker, Silver Book and a Silver Medal! Ask your child what these awards are for!  Of course, during our assembly, our very special guest, Charlie, makes an appearance! 

     An active Home and School Association supports our school in a variety of ways. Various activities and fundraisers promote a strong sense of community and school spirit. Our Home and School Association provides exciting book fairs, family fun nights and cultural programs.

A dedicated and caring staff, enthusiastic students, and positive parents make Charles Kelly an “Owlsome” place for everyone!
