Good Afternoon Carroll Cougar Leaders! This is your principal, Ms. Keech with this week's announcements. A copy of this transcript will be shared through the Carroll Yahoo email group and posted on our website under Keech's Corner.
Carroll Families, as I am sure you are aware, EOG testing began today. Please be aware that students can not be checked out until after 12:00 each day during testing. Please also be aware that lunches will begin later, not starting until 11:45 each day. Make sure that your child is getting a good breakfast each morning and plenty of rest the night before. We will also post our testing schedule on the front page of our website tomorrow for reference. We are also asking the students leave all electronics at home or if they must bring them to school, to lock them in their lockers before coming into the classroom.
That's all for now! Goooooooo Cougars!

Parents as it continues to warm up, please review with your children our dress code located in the front of their agendas and on our website.

Please also review with your child (especially with the all important EOGs coming up) the importance of being on time to class and school. Our students need to take advantage of every minute of instruction possible.
We have a number of awards assemblies and special events coming up. Please make sure that you continue to check our Google Calendar located on the front page of our website for upcoming events and activities.
