Parents and Community Members,
Wow! It is already November and we have had a very busy beginning first quarter of the school year. So much to Whoot, Whoot about here at Charles Carroll School No. 46.
Scholastic Book Fair
Recently, we had our Scholastic Book Fair event and it was a huge success thanks to the collaborative efforts of parents and school staff. During our “Grand” luncheon, our students served as helpers and really gave a warm welcome to parents and guests that came out to see our school and support the Book Fair. Every single year we have increased participation at these events. Thank you to our entire school community, including our Library Media Specialist, Lindsey Bogacz, for making this fundraising event a wonderful opportunity to encourage the love of reading.
We want to take a moment to recognize our parent leadership. They graciously volunteer their time to participate as representatives of our parents on decision making teams and advocate on behalf of all students. Having parent voices involved in our school improvement process and in these types of leadership endeavors supports our entire school community. Please join me in thanking them for their service and support. “Together we can all make a difference in support of our children and school.”

Elementary Report Cards
One of our major goals this year is to improve reciprocal communication between our parents and teachers. Engaging in your child’s learning experience is critical. Be sure to follow up with your child’s teacher to set up a Parent Teacher Conference. Report card season is a great time to have discussions about your child’s academic success.
Elementary report cards will be sent home on Friday, November 16. Here are a few tips to help parents and guardians provide their children with positive and constructive responses to report cards.
Our next amazing event is the 40th Annual Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, December 1st. As a major fundraiser for our school, please make sure to spread the word to families and friends and encourage them to come and shop. Please stay tuned to learn how you can help.
Some of you may have learned that our beloved Art Teacher, Ms. Patricia Rene has made the decision to retire. Please join me in wishing her well in her next endeavors. Her work via our Integrated Arts Program was a worthwhile endeavor and was enjoyed by so many of our students. Please take a minute to enjoy the following celebration of our first two months of school.
While we will not be continuing the Integrated Arts program, we have already hired a new Visual Arts teacher, Ms. Sarah Doyle. Please join me in welcoming her to our school community.
Finally, as the holidays quickly approach us, it is important to be thankful and recognize the efforts of our students to grow and improve. We are working hard on finding ways to include your children in understanding their progress, establishing goals, and taking ownership of their learning. Your support is always vital to our efforts.
