Principal's Message

Mrs. Harris

Mrs. Hope Harris

Enjoy your summer break! I wish everyone a safe and restful summer. Don’t forget to pick up a good book and read. The local libraries have great summer programs and events. Also, information was given out with report cards about the Alabama Summer Learning Challenge and Stride Academy. Students with Internet access can use Stride Academy, the program we use here at Carlisle in the computer labs, throughout the summer.

Supply lists for the 2017-2018 school year are posted. Grade Level Orientations (formerly “Meet and Greet”) and Kindergarten Orientation, will take place August 7th. This year we will be holding parent orientation meetings before the first through fifth grade students visit their new classroom and meet their teacher. See the appropriate grade level supply list for specific times. The first day of school is August 9th. This day will come quickly, and I look forward to another amazing year!

Have fun this summer and be safe!
