Sunday, October 29th from 5-7pm at the Carlisle School Bus Parking Lot: Followers of Christ Baptist Church is hosting a Trunk or Treat.  This is a date change!  We previously had it listed as Saturday.  It is SUNDAY!  Sorry for the confusion.


The Southwest School Corporation is planning an E-Learning Day on Friday, November 17, 2017 for grades 6-12 at Carlisle Middle School, Sullivan Middle School, and Sullivan High School.  Students in grades K-5 will be attending school as a normal day; however, teachers and students will be simulating an E-Learning day during part of their regularly scheduled activities.  We are choosing this date for an E-Learning day due to the fact that a large portion of our student population will be at the state Beta Convention.

An E-Learning Day is an opportunity to expose students to 21st century skills, keep the educational process relevant, and maximize instructional time before standardized testing.  This day is designed to allow students to work from home on assignments posted to our Canvas learning management system.  This E-Learning Day provides us the opportunity to explore our ability to keep the learning process seamless for future inclement weather.  Although we would like for all students to take advantage of this opportunity, E-Learning Days are optional and schools will be open, buses will be running, and lunches will be served.  Students who choose to attend school on November 17, 2017 will be assigned to a computer lab and will complete their assignments digitally through Canvas under the supervision of an instructional assistant.  Teachers will be available during their office hours from 12-2pm to answer any questions through email, Canvas, or by phone.  If students have technical issues throughout the day, they may contact the technology facilitator at their school by using the help desk or by emailing or calling.  Students will be required to sign up in the office by Friday, November 3, 2017 if they plan on attending school that day.


Friday, November 3rd:  K-4th grade; 6:15-8:30pm; Featured Movie is Sing

Friday, November 10th: 5-8th grade; 6-9:30pm; Double Feature Movies are Sing and Lights Out

Cost is $3 which includes 1 popcorn and 1 chance to win the movie.  Chips, pop, and cookies will be available for purchase for $0.50 each.


Parents, please check your child’s Harmony Account so you know what their lunch balance is at all times.


7/8 Boys basketball practice has begun.  It will soon be time for 5/6 Boys, 7/8 Girls, 5/6 Girls basketball to begin (cheer and dance, too).  IF you are even thinking about playing, you MUST have a physical on file before you can go to practice.

Remember that all athletes MUST have a physical on file in the school office before you can participate in ANY practice. 

Also remember: Students are not to stay in the building after school for any reason unless supervised by a coach or designated adult.

*Reminder: Information regarding school activities can be found in various places.  They are posted on Carlisle’s website, emailed to both student and parent, and sent home monthly on the Activities Calendar.  Mrs. Jones reads the announcements daily before school.

PTO: The next PTO meeting is November 7th at 3:15pm.

CONCESSIONS:  After school concessions are every day after school.  There will be Gatorade, chips, candy bars for sale.  Please do not send large bills with your child.  We do not have a lot of change.  If we don’t have change, then your child won’t be able to purchase their snack.


Parents or guardians enter their phone numbers, address, emergency contacts, etc. when registering your child(ren) for school every year.  This is information that is very important.  You should be looking at that and, if necessary, be changing it.  If you move to a different address-you should change it in Harmony.  If you get a new phone number-you should change it in Harmony.  If you want to change your emergency contacts-you should change it in Harmony.  If there are old contacts that are no longer used-you should change it in Harmony. These records need to be kept current. We will not be able to contact you in an emergency situation if our records are not accurate.  Please call the school office if you need assistance.


We respectfully ask that all after school instructions for where your child needs to go be done before they leave home in the morning.  A note for your child’s teacher is the easiest.  Your child cannot get on a bus other than their regular scheduled bus unless they have a note from their parent stating they have your permission.  IF you have to call the office, please do so before 2pm.

Please remember: Students are not to stay in the building after school for any reason unless supervised by a coach or designated adult.
