Parents and Community Members,
It is unbelievable how quickly the year has come to an end. In reflection, it has been a very productive and busy year at Charles Carroll School #46. Our 6th grade students not only participated in an opportunity to attend two Broadway shows but they even embarked on an exciting opportunity to participate in a produced musical here at our school. Recently, students engaged in the "Let's Move “Campaign, initiated by First Lady Michele Obama. In addition, we had excellent attendance and an increase of entries submitted for our “Ask the Expert" night.
We collectively approved moving forward on our expanded learning plan, which includes adding an additional 300 hours to our school year. Next year, our students will attend school from 8-4:10. As a part of their school day, students will participate in meaningful, engaging opportunities to enhance their literacy skills and develop their ability to comprehend text. They will also participate in additional arts and physical education electives. Indeed it has been an exciting year!

So many rich opportunities have been offered as a result of our hardworking, dedicated staff. The work they do each day should be acknowledged and appreciated. In addition, we especially thank our parents who support our work each and every day. We especially acknowledge the work of Ms. Geyer, Mrs. Wellman, Mrs. Singh, Mrs. Chestnut, and Mrs. Sanders for their willingness to volunteer and support excellent opportunities for all of our students.
I look forward to continuing to elicit feedback to inform our ELT (expanded learning time) plans. You will be receiving sample schedules in your child's report card and these will be posted and updated on our website. Please continue to visit our website on a regular basis for updates including class supply lists, ELT news, and other important dates, and information.
Thank you for entrusting your children to us and we look forward to continuing to make our school one of the best in our beautiful city. Have a safe summer and be sure to continue to encourage your child to read.
