Monday, March 4, 2013 Testing

CSHS will be testing the Junior students in English Language Arts for TAKS testing on Monday, March 4, 2013. As a result of this process our CHS students will not be on a shuttle bus first through third periods of the day.

All students will be reporting to the lecture hall for this day unless alternative circumstances are discussed with the teacher. We will take attendance and this will be used as a study hall for all students reporting to the lecture hall.

Busy Weekend Just Past

First and foremost we would like to congratulate our repeat State Champion swimmers and divers. The boys have just completed their 3rd championship in a row while our girls finished off number 2. Both teams provided a dominating performance and left no doubt the Dragons are #1.

In addition, I would like to congratulate our Emerald Belles on their outstanding showing across the state. The Varsity Belles swept their routines in San Marcos and brought home several division and solo awards. The JV Belles performed well in Frisco and won Best in Class awards as well.

Our Wrestlers finished 4th and 5th at the UIL State Wrestling Championships. We are extremely proud of these young men as the performed admirably in Austin.

In addition, we had numerous students competing in competitions across the nation from Debate to Softball and we are proud of their efforts to represent the Dragon name.

Finally we do remind everyone last Friday was the end of the 6 week grading period. With the many absences we do need to encourage everyone to meet with their teachers to get their assignments completed quickly.

Meetings this Week!

We want to personally invite you to join Carroll ISD for two very important events this week. 

S.P.A.R.K. Town Hall
You are invited to a powerful town hall meeting Monday, February 4 at 7:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Carroll Senior High School's auditorium. Parents and Students (Grades 7-12) are urged to attend.

S.P.A.R.K. wants to start a conversation in every home. Our children are growing up in a very difficult world where Anxiety and Depression are far too prevalent.

Questions to be addressed at the meeting include:
  • How do parents and children talk to each other about painful subjects?
  • How does a parent know when their child is struggling?
  • What can your child do if they see a friend in crisis?
Th‑e Grant Halliburton Foundation will present this "Must-See” program. Please go to for more information.

 Our Schools, Our Voice Celebration Rally
Also, this Thursday evening, February 7 at Grapevine High School, we'd like our Dragons to come out for a community Celebration Rally for Public Schools. The program will feature student performances as well as brief comments from business, educator and parent representatives. Our district is co-hosting this event with the Grapevine-Colleyville and Keller school districts. Purchase a $10 t-shirt at any CISD school and wear it to the rally. You may want to carpool to help with on-site parking. Come see and hear the great things happening in our public schools and get resources for how you can stay informed, stay involved and be an advocate for our kids and our future! The program is from 7-8:30 p.m. in the main gym at Grapevine HS. 

 See you there!

Lucky to be a DRAGON!

As I sit here and watch our Dragon swimmers it amazes me the kids we have. I'm pretty sure I just watched Dragon swimmers take the top 6 spots in one race. These kids could swim varsity on 99% of the teams in the state. It truly makes me realize how lucky I am to work with our kids.
