Author Coach Sloth to visit Carman Trails
Carman Trails is excited to welcome Coach Sloth to our school on May 8th. Coach Sloth is an author, avid reader, athlete, coach, and has even been in 5 movies! He will be sharing life experiences, discussing how he developed his characters, and delivering an anti-bullying message. Attached is the flyer with more information about his books if you would like to purchase one. He will even sign it for you! 

MAP Testing Continues This Week!!
 Last Week our 5th graders started us off with their portion of the MAP test. We were so proud of them and how hard they all worked, great job 5th grade! This week continues with our 4th and then our 3rd graders. Please remember that test starts promptly in the morning so please make sure all students arrive on time in addition: 
  • Making sure students get a good night's sleep;
  • Eating a healthy breakfast; and
  • Getting to school on time, as tests generally start immediately after announcements. 
Thank you, as always, for all your support of our Carman Trails students while they take these tests.
NO Late Start in May
There will NOT be a late start day in May. The day that would normally be a late start is a MAP testing day, so please be sure your student arrives on time.  Thank you so much for your cooperation!
