Win a FREE pair of shoes!

1. Document your child learning how to tie their shoes for 7 days. (do not have to be consecutive.) Documentation can be pictures, journal, email, etc...


2. At the end of the contest date, March 1st through March 22nd, submit your documentation to the office or via email at academy@cbcarlington.org.


3. Once documentation has been submitted, students will be called in to the office to tie their shoe laces. Once the shoe is tied successfully, their name will be entered into a drawing.


4. Mrs. Carla's husband will donate a $50 gift card to Finish Line towards the purchase of a new pair of shoes!


Learning how to tie shoes is a part of growing up! Everyone must learn. Preschool and grade school aged children pose serious threats of danger to themselves by not having their shoes tied. Parents, it is your responsibility to make sure your child either has Velcro shoes, short shoelaces, or knows how to tie their shoes. Hopefully this contest will encourage all families to get bows on those shoelaces. The race is on to the Finish Line to get some new shoes! Ready, Set, Bow!


*If your child already knows how to tie their shoe, you can still do the contest. They will enter it just like everyone else and will be eligible to win.

Business Office Information

  • School hours are 8:30-3:30. Tardies in the elementary classroom are becoming more frequent. At the teachers request, tardies and absences will start being calculated immediately for students arriving after 8:30am. This can negatively affect their attendance which can cause the child to be retained next school year in the same grade. P.E. is not optional. Students must be here at 8:30.
  • Business hours of 8-5pm will be enforced this year. It is possible that Coach Justin or Mrs. Carla will be in the building until 6pm most days, however, please do not attempt to conduct business with the teachers prior to 8am. They must keep their attention and focus on the students.
  • Referrals are still accepted for new families. Each family will receive a 20% discount. Spread the good news about our school and help us grow
  • Follow us on Facebook to see updated pictures of the kiddos throughout the year! First day of school pictures have been uploaded to our FB page! Check them out to find your child.
  • If you are NOT receiving the text message communications from Carla, please send her an email and she will send you a link to join. The app is "Remind" and our class code is @016df.
