We have had a wonderful spirit week. I am sure your children have already shared with you all of the fun that they have had this week showing their spirit. All of our students were well-behaved and excited. The last event of this week is our school dance today from 2:30-5:30. Please make sure that you pick up your child or they have a ride promptly at 5:30 today. If they are not picked up on time, they are subject to not being able to participate in our next dance.
Next Friday, October 18th is an early release day at 11:45. Teachers and staff will be in professional development and will not be able to hold parent conferences or meetings. Students should leave campus at 11:45. There will not be any supervision provided after dismissal.
Our Fall Scholastic Book Fair will be here at Carroll during the week of October 21st-25th. Look for flyers coming home this week for a preview of the fabulous books for sale.
And, speaking of flyers you should have also received a flyer explaining our PTA "No Fuss" fundraiser last week. It is "no fuss" because you do not have to sell anything. Please donate and help our school purchase necessary technology. Help us lead the way!
And, speaking of fundraisers...Don't forget to order your advance tickets for the NC State Fair on-line and help us raise money. See our website for more details.
Again, we wish to remind our carpoolers to please follow our car-pool procedures. Someone destroyed our signs and cones that indicated no left hand turns during our car pool. Although we do not have the money to replace the cones and signs, the procedures are still the same. If you need a copy of our car-pool procedures and maps please contact our front office. Please set a good example for your child and follow the procedures that we put in place for the safety of your child and the adults who use our campus.
That's all for now! Goooooooo Cougars!

Cougar families we had a great start to our spirit week. Many of our students were dressed in pink on Monday for Breast Cancer Awareness and I saw a lot of super heroes today. Tomorrow is Unity Day in which we make the first steps towards "crushing bullying" by wearing Orange and signing our "Stamp out Bullying" poster. Thursday is Twin day and Friday is School Pride day in which everyone will wear their school colors or spirit wear.
Wednesday is also our last home football game so make sure that you come out and support all of our wonderful student athletes. We are also having a canned food drive and if you bring your canned food item to the game you will get into the game on a discount. Our Football and Soccer Teams are in competition for who can collect the most canned goods so if you also want to save your item for next week's home Soccer game you can. Soccer and Volleyball will be at home next week.
On Friday, we will be conducting our first School Dance of the Year from 2:30-5:30. Please make sure that your child has a ride by 5:30. Any late pick-ups are subject to not being able to attend the next dance. Please also remember that any student with an OSS or an ISS will not be allowed to attend.
Parents, you should have already received a flyer about our PTA school "No Fuss Fundraiser" this year. We call this "No Fuss" because you don't have to sell anything. Please help our Carroll community by making your donation today. Donations will be used to replenish technology necessary for our students.
Calling all volunteers! Please remember that you must register by October 31st to volunteer. After that the system will only be available for registration on Mondays. If you registered last year, you will still need to reactivate.
Carroll families, we work very hard to make sure that all students are safe everyday. The procedures and practices that we have put in place are for the safety of your child and the adults on campus who work with your children. They have not been put in place to inconvenience you. We have designed a carpool procedure with WCPSS security and the Raleigh PDs input and have been referred to as "the best carpool in the city" by Raleigh PD. However, some you continue to ignore those procedures (parking in the Bank- which is private property and you are trespassing subject to tow and allowing your child to "jaywalk", parking on the side of the street and allowing your child to get out on the street impeding street traffic, turning left at the no left turn and cones, and destroying the cones that we have put in the street to help guide you). Our carpool lines are only lasting 10-15 minutes at the most when used efficiently by our families. Please set a good example for your child (avoid a citation) and follow the rules that we have put in place for safety and efficiency.
That's all for now! Gooooooo Cougars!
