SchoolMessenger: Sunday, October 2, 2016 (Happy Week 6!)

Good evening, Carroll Leaders! This is Mrs. MacWilliams calling with your weekly updates and reminders for the school week of Monday, October 3 - Friday, October 7. 

It's hard to believe that week 6 is already upon us. Interims will go home with students on Tuesday. 

October 14 is right around the corner, Leaders. Please don't forget to participate in our amazing PTA's No Fuss Fundraiser. 

Did you know that Carroll made the most proficiency growth out of any Wake County middle school during the 2015-2016 school year, and that as compared with all of the schools in the WCPSS, Carroll’s proficiency growth was more significant than 167 of all 171 schools? Yes, only 3 schools in the entire district improved student achievement more significantly than Carroll --- but we are a school on the move, and we aspire to become better every single day.

In addition to cultivating an engaging, fun, real-world, and safe learning environment for students, we want to grow them --- all 1003 of them. We are also working toward 80% proficiency, while closing the opportunity gap at our school.

Our Positivity Project focus this week is Fairness. Fairness enables us to see the value in all people, and it helps us to approach situations with an unbiased mindset, allowing us to treat all people with respect. 

Our Girls' Soccer and Volleyball teams are home this week, taking on Ligon at 4:00 p.m. this Wednesday. Football, also competing against Ligon, will be away on Thursday for their game beginning at 4:00 p.m. as well. 

Have an awesome evening! I'm looking forward to a fantastic week ahead at Carroll Leadership in Technology Magnet Middle School.
