MAP Testing Starts This Week!!
 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.
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!  
Carman Cafe News
Beginning Monday, May 7th, your child's account must have a positive balance.  If a student's account is or will become negative after this date, they will be given an alternate meal.  A la carte items may not be purchased if an account balance is negative.
Please note that this is a Parkway School District policy/notification.
On Thursday, May 24th, the last last day of school, we will be serving pizza not a sack lunch.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our lead dietary aide.
