Principal's Message

Where did the summer go?!  I hope your sunny days were full of fun, adventures, and time spent with those you love.  I am excited to welcome you back to a new school year.  Our theme this year is, Building on Success! I hope each of us will commit to this theme because there are great things that Carson does, and some new things we can start, to make a difference in the lives of kids and our community.   

It is my belief that when staff, students, and families partner together great things can happen.  We will be working hard this year to create a culture where we recognized each student's talents and strengths while focusing on learning.  I invite you to join us in this goal by participating in activities and events, volunteering in the school, and sharing your ideas and concerns.  I am energized to start the new school year.  Together, we can make it an amazing one!
