     Dear Charles Carroll School 46 Families,


    We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We ask you to join us in being thankful for our wonderful partners who engage with our children throughout the day. Please join me in thanking Charles Carroll PTA for their wonderful work in planning our Holiday Bazaar and for the many who volunteered to make this longstanding fundraising event a success.


    Path Forward

    In January 2017, the Rochester City School District Board of Education requested a comprehensive analysis of enrollment trends, demographics, managed choice, feeder patterns, placement zones, neighborhood schools and regional schools.

    The Path Forward Plan will be a dynamic and strategic framework to ensure coherence between educational programs in the schools, grade-level configurations, grade-level enrollments, twenty-first century school facilities and long-range planning. The Plan will be updated annually and will be used to communicate information that families and students need to be informed about high-quality schools in every neighborhood.

    In November, many of our community partners participated in a Community Member Focused Path Forward Meeting. Representatives from Browncroft Community Church, Browncroft Neighborhood Association, Greater Rochester Health Foundation, Nazareth College, Rochester AmeriCorps, Nazareth, The College at Brockport, and Woman’s Club of Pittsford were in attendance. Stay tuned to more information on the District’s Path Forward Initiative.


    School #46 Cares!

    One of our Girls Realizing Our Worth (G. R.O.W) Enrichment Groups participated in a service learning project and is collecting toys for RCSD students who are homeless. If you are interested in helping in this effort, please send in new unwrapped toys to Ms. Bishop. We look forward to their continued leadership, service, and volunteerism.


    Winter Concert – December 8

    Once again, Mrs. Bellamy and Mrs. Pitnell will be hosting our Winter Concert. The concert date is December 8 from 6-7pm. East High School will once again serve as a comfortable venue and we are looking forward to having another successful concert. The East High School Auditorium is located on 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.


    Whooo’s Reading?

    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 is takes place in the book.

    Please turn in the monthly calendars and continue to support this important endeavor. 

    Scholarly Owls Always Read! WE SOAR!


    Happy Holidays,
