Carlisle PTO is hosting a seat raffle! Two winners will receive six seats each to the December 5th Carlisle Elementary Christmas Program. Tickets are $1 each or 6/$5. Winners will enjoy comfortable seating in the front row. The same person will not be allowed to win both sets of seats. Tickets can be purchased from any PTO officer or in the school office between November 15th-December 4th. Winners will be drawn on December 4th at 2:30pm.
2017 Holiday spirit wear order forms were sent home today. Order forms and money are due to the office by December 1st. Make checks payable to Carlisle PTO. There are some new items on the form so be sure to check it out! It makes great Christmas presents!
SCHOOL-WIDE FUNDRAISER: RADA CUTLERY
Our school fundraiser is going to be a RADA Cutlery sale. The school will get 40% profit from all sales. This is a great, quality product that can be purchased at a reasonable price! Our hope is that each student (and staff) set a goal to sell at least 10 items. These products make great Christmas gifts! Our goal is to raise money for indoor/outdoor recess activities and PE equipment for both the elementary and the middle school, and other educational items to be used in your child’s education. Money and order forms are due in the office by Monday, November 27th. Any late orders may not be returned in time for Christmas.
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.

LUNCH ACCOUNT BALANCES:
Parents, please check your child’s Harmony Account so you know what their lunch balance is at all times.
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, PLEASE UPDATE HARMONY INFO
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.
PHONE CALLS FROM PARENTS ABOUT AFTER SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONS
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.
