Note about Book Character Day

Our second annual Book Character Day is scheduled for October 28th as the cumulation of Red Ribbon Week! Students are allowed to dress up as their favorite book character, but must bring the book their character is from.


Costumes must be in dress code and comfortable since we will still be learning that day.


We will have a shortened Celebrate Carroll the morning of the 28th and our book character parade from 8:20-8:40. Parents are invited to attend and we will have them stand in the main hallway.
