Principal's Update for the Week of 03/06/23

Good morning Cougar Country,

Parents and students, thank you for your support of our color battle fund raiser!  Its not too late to donate.  Any Carrington student can provide their code for donations.  Students who have the highest donations will have the opportunity to spray their assistant principal with color during lunch on Monday, March 6.  Students who raise at least $30 will be able to participate in the color battle event on Thursday, March 9.  There are additional prizes for students who meet various fundraising goals.  Thank you for your support of our fundraiser.

Parents and students, no door dash/fast food deliveries will be accepted in the main office. These deliveries interfere with the efficient operation of the school, and we don’t have staff to accommodate this traffic in the main office.  Please do not arrange for food deliveries for students.  Students should bring their lunches with them to school or order lunch from the cafeteria.  Thank you for your help with this.
