SCHOOL FAIR AND SILENT AUCTION
Saturday, May 4

The most amazing Carrboro event is less than two months away and we are looking forward to everyone being involved. By now, you should have received an email from your room parent as well as a flyer about all the ways you can support the fair and silent auction. GAMES and BOOTHS: Each class is assigned a game or booth. Please sign up to take a shift. Those classes that only need 4 people to staff their booth also have "at-large" shifts that need to be filled to help out in other areas of the fair like concessions and smoothie bikes. This is the one time of year we need everyone to pitch in. You can find your class booth HERE.

Thank you in advance for everyone's support and as always if you have any questions email me, Karen Herpel. 
I want to volunteer for classroom booths!

SIT MEETING
Friday, April 5
7:50 - 9 AM


The next School Improvement Team (SIT) meeting is Friday, April 5, 7:50 - 9:00 am. All are welcome to attend to listen or to bring a question or comment during the public comment time on the agenda. This month we will discuss the MTSS (Multi-tiered System of Supports) that is currently being used in the school. We will also hear updates on any staffing changes and budget requests. This year, the school has been increasing the communication and collaboration between the SIT and the parent groups. You can see some of those results in the agenda/minutes for January and February. Elections for SIT representatives are coming soon.


KEEP UP TO DATE!
There are several outlets the PTA and CES communicate important and interesting information so families can know what is going on in the school, district and larger community.  Aside from the monthly newsletter, both the PTA and Carrboro Elementary School have their own websites, plus the school is also on both Facebook and Twitter. And as always check your child's Friday folder not only for news, but for class assignments and finished work.
