Good evening, Cougar Leaders! This is Mrs. MacWilliams calling with your weekly updates and reminders for the school week of Monday, September 28 - Friday, October 2.
There is only one week remaining in the PTA's #WeAreCarroll No Fuss Fundraiser. With 100% of the proceeds directly impacting the learning and teaching at our great school, now is the time to act. If every student raises $10.00, our $10,000 goal will be met. There are great prizes on the line for our students, and an opportunity for our parents to support instructional innovation at our school. $1, $5, $20, $100 --- whatever amount your family can raise, it will help.
The safety and welfare of our students is our number one priority at Carroll. Our building has a comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan in place, and in order to familiarize our school community members with their roles and responsibilities associated with this plan, we will be conducting a Lockdown drill this week. This will be a collaborative effort among Carroll faculty and staff, the WCPSS' Security Department, and local law enforcement.
The first round of the 2015-2016 Tablet Rollout is in full swing. Over the next week, all students who submitted their completed tablet packages by Friday, September 18 will receive their tablets. As a friendly reminder, a parent/guardian must subscribe to Carroll's parent email distribution list in order for submitted packages to be considered complete. Thank you to the 508 families who have already met this requirement.
If your family is interested in sponsoring tablet insurance for a child or children other than your own, please contact our main office. Without insurance, our school is not be able to sustain our 1:1 program.
We're looking forward to another epic week filled with meaningful learning and teaching at Carroll. Have a great night!
