Carson Grove ES News Update - Week of Nov. 20th

The end of fall / beginning of winter weather is here!  Please be sure that your child comes to school ready to play outdoors.  The school does have some winter clothes for students to use.  Please have your child come to the office if they ever need outdoor clothing.  Indoor shoes are still also very important at this time of the year to help keep the school clean!

November 19th to 25th is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week 

Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week is an opportunity for us all to reinforce clear and positive messages that bullying is not acceptable in our schools and communities.  This week, we will be working to raise awareness and provide helpful information for how we can all work together to prevent and respond to bullying.  At Carson Grove, we will be talking about how we can all use our WITS when something or someone is bothering us:
