Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our 40th year here at Caraway Elementary! This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before! We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and many enrichment opportunities for our students and families.

During the 2018-19 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven record of hard work, social emotional development, and continued excellence in education. Our theme for this year is Celebrate Becoming...This theme is our promise to help our students reach their full potential in all that they do. We want our students to know that they are never done growing, and to truly understand the power of YET! We believe that our students have the right to grow both academically and behaviorally. Our mantra, growth with no apologies.

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of our school.

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at Caraway. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s classroom experiences and school activities.

Again, we welcome you to Caraway Elementary and to our wonderful learning community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence!

We know you have choice in where you choose to live and educate your child. We thank you for choosing us. Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!

Sincerely,

Katrina Bailey, Principal
