SchoolMessenger: Sunday, August 30, 2015

Good evening, Cougar Leaders! This is Mrs. MacWilliams calling with your weekly updates and reminders for the school week of Monday, August 31 - Friday, September 4. 

We are off to an incredible start at Carroll Leadership in Technology Magnet Middle School. Thank you to all of our families for your continued support as our team's focus remains unremitting improvement in best serving the students at our great school. 

If you have not done so already, please subscribe to our Carroll mailing list. Communication is a critical element in achieving optimal success. Not only is it a requirement for your child to receive his/her tablet at the end of September, it also provides families with the option of hanging up on my weekly phone call, as my phone messages will always be emailed through the distribution list on Sunday evenings.  

Tuesday, September 1, Carroll's first PTA meeting of the 2015-2016 school year will be held at 6:30 pm in the media center. Please join us to hear from the PTA Executive Team and learn about their plans to enhance your child's academic experience. PTA membership is strongly encouraged. 

Don't miss the meaningful learning and teaching happening in your child's classroom. Follow the Carroll Twitter handle, @CMMSCougars, my Twitter handle, @MsMacWilliams, and/or the many other handles managed by the lead learners here at Carroll. It is our privilege to share the exciting and innovative learning opportunities that our students are experiencing each and every day. 

This Wednesday, September 2, your child will receive an important package of informational documents detailing this year's tablet rollout scheduled for late September. Please look for these important forms on Wednesday afternoon, and for those of you who prefer electronic copies, please note that all documents will also be posted to our website. 

The Carroll Team is thrilled to announce a partnership with the A.E. Finley YMCA this school year, who will be facilitating a FREE Y-Learning Program for 24 students. This program will run from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm daily. Applications may be picked up in Student Services this week. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to support your child's education. 

Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 17, Cougars. Join us to support the Carroll football team at Sanderson High School beginning at 4:00 pm, followed by dinner on the lawn and our fall Meet the Teacher event back at school. 

This week will mark the end of all first quarter schedule changes. Thank you to those of you who submitted requests after Wednesday of last week for your patience and flexibility, as our state's scheduling database experienced an outage that impacted our ability to interact with online scheduling late last week. Fortunately, we are again up and running, and we're on track to iron out any remaining requests early this week. 

As a friendly reminder, tonight is the close of our first round of PE Uniform orders. The total cost of a uniform is $10.30. Please visit our school website for more details. 

Attention 7th & 8th Grade Athletes: Cheerleading Tryouts will be held tomorrow, Monday, August 31, Wednesday, September 2, and Thursday, September 3. 

This Friday, September 4, is an early release day for students. Dismissal will be held at 11:45 am. 

We are in for another epic week ahead at Carroll. Have a great night!
