What has the Carroll Team been doing to prepare for the 2016-2017 school year?

Last March, an energetic bunch of Lead Learners from the Carroll family traveled to Atlanta for the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development Annual Conference and Expo. 

In June, another excited group traveled to Denver for Digital Promise's Summer Learning Conference. The following week, another team from our family attended the International Society for Technology in Education Society Annual Conference & Expo.

When our entire team returned to Carroll on Friday, August 19, we jumped right into Learner Agency, Professional Learning Teams, Social Emotional Learning, Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports, Collaborative Planning, Meaningful Assessment to Personalize Learning, Community Building, and more! (Our Agenda) We enjoyed a Pig Pickin', hosted by our amazing PTA, and we traveled our base attendance zones to meet with some of our students. 

On Thursday, August 25, we had a blast mingling with families at our Community Kickoff. Students picked up their schedules,  enjoyed music from DJ Combs, and ate some delicious treats from a selection of food trucks. 

Friday, August 26, we welcomed students for Leadership Orientation. Students met Carroll's leadership team, their core teachers, and our elective specialists. Core teachers led students through team building tasks and games, and students walked their 2016 schedules. 

It has been quite an adventure preparing for an incredible 2016-2017 school year! We can't wait to welcome students back officially on Monday morning.
