August 28th  - Back to School Night, 6:45pm in MP Room

Welcome back to school!  I am very excited to get to know each and everyone one of you.  This will be a 
year of exploration, learning, and problem solving as we tackle the new Common Core Standards.  
Fortunately, I am already on board and ready to delve right in along with you.  This is a great time in 
education and a fabulous way to learn for understanding.  I look forward to forging relationships and 
engaging in rich conversations.  

Our theme for this year is Heroes... finding the hero within.  Many of our get-to-know-you activities will 
be on this theme as we build a sense of community in our classroom.  The first week of school will be 
about community and creating a sense of our class dynamics.  The second week of school will be 
immersion into curriculum in all subject areas.  

This website will be your main source of class news and information that pertains to all the goings-on in 
Room 12B.  I welcome your inquiries into any aspect of our class.  

I look forward to meeting everyone at Back to School Night this Thursday.

Have a FABULOUS week!
Mrs. Carrolan
