I am a happily married wife of 32 years. I married my high school sweetheart. I am MOM to four AMAZING kids, two boys and two girls, a loyal friend, and follower of Jesus. I love Coca Cola, Snoopy, and coloring. I also love college football and support the Baylor Bears and Oklahoma Sooners. I was born in Lawton, Oklahoma but have been in Texas for over 40 years and call it HOME! I grew up in the Richardson area and graduated from Berkner High School. Soccer was a huge part of my life growing up. I played competitively, and coached competitively. I still love soccer to this day. I adore my family and spend most of my free time with them, however, I do love to go to Canton, and enjoy an occasional ladies night. If you want to know more about me, come bye and introduce yourself. I am thrilled to be joining all of you at Carlisle. My older two children attended all of their elementary years at Harrington Elementary before we relocated to Frisco. I look forward to being an integral part of PISD and the Carlisle community.

Notes from the Nurse...

Backpack Basics – Lesson 1

Come to Carlisle any morning or afternoon and you will see almost every child is carrying a backpack. They suit their purpose in carrying all of their essential items from home to school and back and they are a reflection of each child’s unique personality. However, carrying an overloaded or poorly fitting backpack can cause problems such as:

  • Muscle Fatigue
  • Poor Posture
  • Painful Shoulders
  • Back and Neck Pain Injuries from Tripping / Falling

The proper backpack is:

  • No wider than the user’s chest
  • Worn no higher than the base of the neck
  • Worn no lower than 2-4 inches below the waist
  • Supported by a waist or chest strap
  • Made of lightweight material
A good backpack has:
  • A padded back
  • Several compartments
  • Side compression Straps
  • Reflectors
  • Two wide, padded shoulder straps

How does your child’s backpack measure up? Stay tuned for information on backpack safety next week.

Lost and Found

The lost and found is slowly growing. Please find a way to put your child’s name or initials on all items such as water bottles and lunch bags. As the weather changes to cool mornings and warm afternoons the number of sweaters, jackets, fleeces and hoodies will explode. Items get left on the playground and in the gym after PE. Please discuss responsibility for these items with your children.
