Carson Cooks!

Carson Elementary PTO is selling cookbooks of recipes gathered from Carson staff, students, and parents! I've seen it, and it is a good one! Get yours today for $10! Send the money to school with the attention PTO. We will have our tasting bee so that you can sample the recipes on May 20th! More information coming soon!

Next Year

We have begun the process of preparing for the new school year, and we would like to make the best decisions possible concerning the placement of your child with their new teacher. Please keep in mind the following things:

  • Please do not request a specific teacher.
  • We will honor one negative request such as "I would prefer to not have Mrs. Quarles for my child's 3rd grade teacher."
  • Please do not ask your child's current teacher for recommendations for next year's placement.
  • Please send any information to Mrs. Quarles no later than Wednesday, May 25th.


Carson Elementary has a strong, outstanding faculty, and I am confident that your child will thrive in any placement for next year. Please remember that this process is not complete and class placements are not available until Meet the Teacher Night on Thursday August, 18th.


Thank you!
