Important Note From the Nurse

School Health Services protocol requires that all medication housed in the school health office must be picked up by parents or guardians by the last day of school. In order to ensure the safe return of medication to parents, no medication will be sent home with students in backpacks or on the bus/school transportation. All medication remaining in the health office after May 24th will be disposed of per Parkway policy.  Please notify the nurse when you are available to pick up your children’s medications.

Girls on the Run
Hello Families!
Next year we are going to have a GOTR team here at Carman Trails. If you are not familiar, this is a program for girls in grades 3-5. In this program, life skills are taught through lessons and running games; which leads to a celebratory 5K at the end. 
With that being said, in order to make this program successful, we need help! This is a 10-week program that will meet starting mid-September 2 times a week (before or after school), leading up to the 5K that is on November 17th.  
I know this is a little early to be thinking about next year, but if you would like to help out with this amazing program, please let me know! (

Have you ever considered the PTO Executive Board?  We currently have two open Fundraising Co-Chair positions. Fundraising Co-Chairs are responsible for working together, as well as with the PTO board, to coordinate Carman Restaurant Night Out Events and our "Our Carman" fundraiser. Board positions terms are for 2 school years (2018-209 & 2019-2020). The executive board meets the last Tuesday each month.  It's a great way to meet new people and support our school at the same time!!
