Good afternoon, Cougar Leaders, and welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! This is Mrs. MacWilliams calling with some important updates and reminders for the school week of Monday, August 24 - Friday, August 28.
In celebration of our epic year ahead, Dr. Merrill, Wake County Public School System's Superintendent, along with other district representatives and media outlets, will be on campus to join us for our kick-off tomorrow morning. We're looking forward to showing off our school spirit by wearing our Carroll gear. If you have a school shirt, please join us by representing our awesome Cougar community.
If your family utilizes our carpool, please note that some changes have been made to alleviate some congestion on the roads leading into our parking lot. The updated procedures have been posted to the Carroll website.
Communication is highly prioritized at our great school. In order to best serve your family, we are asking all parents and guardians to please subscribe to our mailing list by visiting our school website and completing the required information under CMMS Announcements. A parent subscription to our email distribution list will be required for our upcoming tablet rollout in late September.
Thank you to all of the Carroll families who joined us last week for our Cougar Camps, school tours, and our 7th & 8th grade schedule pick-up event. If you were not able to attend, please don't stress. Schedules will be available for students bright and early, upon arrival tomorrow morning.
All schedule change requests are due to the Guidance Office on Thursday, August 27. Forms have been posted to our school website and to the Cougar Chronicle. The administrative team will carefully review each request, and families will be notified of any schedule changes within 24 hours to ensure immediate implementation of all revised schedules. Please note that there are still many vacancies in our 6th grade Band and Strings course offerings.
The deadline to order PE uniforms is Sunday, August 30. Please visit our school website for additional information.
Attention Cougar Athletes: Football, soccer, and volleyball tryouts are this week. For specific details, please visit the Athletics link on our homepage.
We are in for an incredible school year filled with meaningful learning and teaching --- and FUN!
I'm looking forward to a phenomenal first week as a Carroll Cougar. Have a great night!
