Attendance Incentives for the 2015-2016 School Year

We began our attendance incentives during Fly Friday. It was so fun to give away prizes to not only kids, but teachers. Here is a break down of how we will be tracking and rewarding attendance.


Every three weeks - the class that has the highest percentage of students present will get a reward

Every six weeks - the grade-level that has the highest percentage of students present will get a reward

Each six weeks - staff that have perfect attendance will be put into a drawing for a $20 gift card.


Coming Soon -

We are working on a display for the front hall that keep a running percentage for grade levels and highest class. Hopefully this visual will help motivate your class.

Eagle Pride Award

This six week's Teacher Eagle Pride Award goes to Mrs. Perkins. She is doing a fabulous job heading up our SPED department, working with a new team, and mentoring multiple colleagues. She also added a new color coding system to bus dismissal to make it more efficient. In her 'spare' time she runs the Destination Imagination program for all of Decatur ISD. She is a busy woman, and we are so thankful she is here at Carson. Mrs. Perkins was awarded a gift card at the Fly Friday Assembly.
