IMPORTANT DATES COMING UP
Dear Carman Parents,
Spring is well underway -- the temperatures should be going back up soon!
Just a few reminders for upcoming events:
*We are hosting our second Family Engagement Night on Thursday, May 6 from 6:30 -7:15 pm. Please see the flyer below on how to RSVP and receive your free math resources.
* There will be a Zoom meeting for parents regarding the film "Don't Wait" (on substance abuse prevention) on Thursday, May 6th from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Please register at the link listed below in the Paw Print.
* All In-Person Students will have Virtual Learning every Monday through May 24th.
* Carman Trails PTO is sponsoring a Night Out at Fritz's Frozen Custard on May 27th from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. with 10% of sales going back to Carman. Don't forget to show your flyer!
* There is No School on Monday, May 31st.
Due to not hosting large crowds, we will not have "May Day" this year. We have been told to stay the course to help mitigate the spread of Covid in our schools. The possibility of high temps with masks and close proximity of multiple classes together along with assemblies being canceled for this school year are the main reasons for the decision. We are looking forward to hosting more of our traditions next school year. Let's stay encouraged the trends will continue to decline.
With CT Pride,
CELEBRATING ADVENTURE CLUB!

MR. FOUSHEE'S ADVENTURE CLUB NEWS - April 25th, 2021
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
This week Adventure Club celebrated Earth Day! The kids tested their recycling
knowledge through recycle relay races in the gym, and designed artwork to enter into an
Earth Day contest hosted by Missouri State Parks. They also got started on the garden
and began brainstorming ideas for things to plant after we're sure there won't be any
more deep freezes! Next week we'll dive deep into the Earth's oceans to finish off our
month about the Earth!
Summer School Registration is OPEN!
Fun awaits this summer at Parkway Summer School! Make a splash, unleash your imagination, discover nature, explore new experiences and get out and play with us this summer in 200+ full and half-day programs!

Happy Earth Month!
The 51st international celebration of Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd!
Earth Day is recognized around the world as a day of action to protect our planet by changing our behavior, raising awareness about the climate crisis, and to create global, national, and local policy changes.
The idea for the first Earth Day came from Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970 after a massive oil spill near Santa Barbara, California. Nelson and his team promoted events across the country that inspired 20 million Americans to take to the streets. By the end of 1970, the first Earth Day led to the creation of the EPA and numerous important environmental laws.
This month, we've organized activity ideas for students, staff, families to celebrate Earth Day at home or at school.
We're looking forward to celebrating Earth Day with everyone! Please share your photos and celebrations with us using #ParkwayEarthDay
