Charlotte Public Schools is excited to introduce “The Chirp.” The Chirp is our new 2018-2019 employee recognition program. The Orioles of CPS dedicate themselves to the success of their students, colleagues, building, district, and community every day. The staff of Charlotte Public Schools truly are amazing! We appreciate the hard work that goes into being a dedicated Oriole, and want to publicly recognize our Oriole team!!

Anita Finch (Transportation)
“My son left his boots on the bus on the Friday prior to the week of snow days. Ms. Anita, went back to Weymouth after completing her route and dropped them back off for him. It means a lot that she would go above and beyond to drop off his boots instead of us having to chase them down through the lost and found.” ~Megan Gleason

“Jane goes out of her way to share with other staff members. She is always willing to help others with projects, supplies, and ideas. She quietly goes about her day with kindness.” ~Sharon Dietz
