Friday Focus

From the desk of Christopher J. Blake

Carroll Elementary School believes that by fostering a positive, safe and secure learning environment that includes a comprehensive curriculum and involvement of all stakeholders, all students will be successful academically, socially, and emotionally.

Message for the Week

As the semester comes to an end and we approach Christmas, we are all so busy running around trying to get everything done and taking care of everybody. Many of you are trying to find that perfect gift for loved ones and friends or checking off Christmas wish lists that your kids gave you. It can be easy to lose focus; at least it is for me, on what is important.

I consider it a gift to be able to come to work every day, to work with the staff at Carroll Elementary, and to serve the students, parents, and community. We give the gift of knowledge to our students on a daily basis. Every day, there are rich connections we make with those around us and with the nurturing we extend to ourselves and others—those are the gifts that count.

Thank you for doing what you do day in and day out. You are a gift to this campus and to our students! You Matter!!!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!

Parting Thought

“Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.”
