Dear Carrillo Families,

Congratulations to all students that submitted entries for the Invention Convention. We were blown away by the innovated and creative ideas to solve real-world problems! The ingenuity and intelligence of our students were on full display. Thank you, Carolynn and Joey Yates, and all of our parent volunteers, for your hard work to make this event happen!

Flag Salute and Social Intelligence Awards This Friday

This Friday, we will hold our monthly Flag Salute and Awards assembly. All parents of award recipients will be notified by the teachers and invited to attend. However, all parents are welcome to attend Flag Salutes as these are great whole-school community events. Just a reminder, please have a photo-ID with you to enter the campus as our computer sign-in system requires a scan for every visit.

Fifth Grade Spelling Bee, March 4

We will not hold a semi-final round for the Spelling Bee. All students that signed up for the Spelling Bee will advance to the final round which will take place Wednesday, March 4, at 9 am. Parents of participants are welcome to attend.

Please look on the Carrillo website under Programs/Spelling Bee for information to help your child perform at their best. This is where you will find the format of the bee, what the rules are, study tips, and word lists. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact carrillospellingclub@gmail.com
