POLECAT PRIDE

RESPECT – INTEGRITY – TEAMWORK – EXCELLENCE

April 2017 


Though we will be sad to see Mrs. Twisselman leave, we wish her the best in her future adventures! Mrs. T is an important part of our school and our Carrisa family.  YOU WILL BE SORELY MISSED!!! 


A Letter From Mrs. Twisselman -- 

As we close in on the end of another great school year, I wanted to take the time to let you all know that I will be taking a leave of absence next year to spend time with my daughter. It was a bittersweet decision as I will miss my students and the many wonderful people in and around Carrisa Plains Elementary. Over the last 3 years, I have learned so much and I have so enjoyed watching and helping these children grow, learn, and blossom into the respectful, dedicated, and talented students they have become. I know they will do well in their future endeavors, and I know they will continue to work hard and persevere to overcome any and all obstacles they may face. Thank

you for helping to make these last 3 years memorable for me, and for all of your support and teamwork as we worked together to give your children the best education possible. Let's continue to do our best and help our students finish the year on a strong note. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as we are wrapping up the year. 

 

Thanks, 

Mrs. Twisselman 

 



March 2017 

Our students are so fortunate to have the opportunities they have. Because of the hard work of every single staff member at Carrisa Plains, our students receive a laser-focused academic education, enhanced by the hard work of our staff. They ensure that our students are exposed to additional learning that helps them make real-life connections to the information they are learning. From guest speakers, and fieldtrips to music and art, our students are growing as individuals cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Our students are models for kindness and caring. They work very hard to ensure they are making strong choices, but kindly help others make positive choices as well. Thank you to all of our parents, as well, for all of your work at home as you reinforce the work we are doing at Carrisa Plains. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. It is so wonderful to see the close and consistent collaboration between home and school, and school and home. As we say here at Carrisa, “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.”  GO POLECATS!
