Principal's Update 4/25/21

Good Evening Cougar Country,

Parents, students will take their ELA benchmark on Tuesday, April 26, and their math benchmark of Wednesday, April 27.  These are very important diagnostic tests.  Please encourage your child to get enough rest, eat breakfast, and try their best on these assessments.  Also, please ensure students arrive to school on time.  Thank you.

Parents, all Carrington families are required to complete our back to school form..   The form is important for many reasons, including updating contact information and requesting bus information for next year.  Soon, all current transportation requests will be reset and families will need to complete this form to ensure transportation for next year. Even if your child is a car rider, we need very important information from all families.

Carrington PTO will host our next Carrington Night Out on Wednesday, April 27th at Pomodoro Italian Kitchen located at 1811 Hillandale Road.  A portion of your purchase will be donated back to Carrington.  Purchase for Dine-in or Carryout out all day from 11am-9:30pm.  Thank you Pomodoro for your continued support of our school.
