Trivia Night - What a fun night!!
Wow, what a fun trivia night we had on Saturday. Thank you to the fabulous team that set up, hosted, and cleaned up.  We know how much time and dedication it takes to pull off an event of this magnitude.  We are so lucky to have such great families!  Our staff was so excited to contribute to the night as well. Thank you to all for donating the auction items, prizes, and more. There were some good bidding wars going on to spend some quality time with our staff. I must say that Carman Trails is lucky to have such dedicated educators. Thank you to all who were able to join us at the event and fill tables with family and friends. A great time was had by all. Thank you to Dr. Villigram, also known as Paul Stanley, for the great performance. We are all looking forward to next year!
A Message from Amy Sampo - Queeny Art Show
Queeny Park All District Art Show will be:
April 21 10 am - 4 pm
April 22 12 pm - 4 pm
Please come and enjoy some great works of art from students all over the district!
Note to Parents: If your child received an Artist Certificate and were Artist of the Week or they filled out an "About the Artist" sheet, their artwork is in the show. 
MAP Testing
 Every year our 3-5 graders get the opportunity to show off what they have learned with the MAP test! This year, Carman Trails' window for testing is Monday, April 23 - Friday, May 4. All 3-5 students will take the exam. While this can be a stressful time for our students, there are ways for you to help your student. To ensure the maximum uninterrupted testing time, we respectfully ask that you try not to schedule any appointments during the school day during those two weeks. Other ways to help your student do their best:
  • 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. See below for more information, a copy of this letter went home on Thursday in students backpacks.
