Dear Charles Carroll School No. 46 Families,
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We ask you to join us in being thankful for our wonderful PTA, who engage with our community in order to support each and every child that attends school here. Please join me in thanking them for their wonderful work in planning our Holiday Bazaar. So many parents and staff volunteered their time to make this longstanding fundraising event a HUGE success once again.
Winter Concert – December 19
Once again, Mrs. Bellamy and Mrs. Pitnell will be hosting our Winter Concert. The concert date is December 19 from 6-7pm. East High School will serve as a comfortable venue and we are looking forward to having another successful concert. The East High School Auditorium is located at 1801 East Main Street. We will need your support to ensure the performance is a success. Please arrive on time. It is important to follow instructions for dropping off and picking up students after the concert and remember to sign students out accordingly. We have a large venue so feel free to invite extended family. Our concert has become a wonderful community event. We look forward to it.
On November 15th, 2018 we had a group of approximately 13 parents come out to share feedback and provide Mr. McCloud, our parent liaison, and I with meaningful input regarding how we can continue to work together to raise student achievement. Overall our parents shared how supportive of our school they really are and how they want to know how to support their children’s success. Mark your calendar now, our goal is to double the participation at our next Forum scheduled for June 6th, 2019. In addition, please come out to support our School PTA. This year they are working hard to ensure the topics discussed at meetings are focused on ways to support your child’s success. Special guests from our staff will be presenting topics of interest.
I wanted to share the significant importance of reading at home. Research conducted by Cynthia and Drew Johnson states, “Getting our students to read more may be the most valuable thing you can do to improve their vocabulary. Most of the words your children learn will be acquired as they read on their own.” This powerful research shows that your continued support at home will undoubtedly benefit your child. Ask your child to talk to you about what they read and hold them accountable for summarizing what takes place in the book. For the month of November, Ms. Quinn’s class had the highest amount of time read. Overall Mrs. Mezzoprete’s class has the most, number of minutes read outside of school. Good job to those classes. Please turn in the monthly calendars and continue to support this important endeavor.
