2018-2019 Carroll Back to School Night

School Dollars Grant Program

Dear Carroll Community:

Our school has an opportunity to receive a $25,000 grant that will support Visual and Performing Arts opportunities for our students.

I researched this grant and it is definitely a great opportunity for us since we fall in category E which is a $25,000 grant. I also viewed the profile of some of the schools who won the grant last year. Some of the winning schools from last year are located in Sacramento. These winning schools used the funds for tutoring, technology, school supplies, VAPA materials, and other great items.

We need to collect votes from now until March 23. You can vote once per day. We are currently enrolled in the program and only have 6 votes so we need to get the word out so that we get more votes.  Please help us by posting to your social media and  send the link to friends and family.

You can vote here:

You’re Invited to Explore: Map Your Future- Oct. 26th | 5:30-7:30PM


What will your students be when he or she grows up? Has your child had the opportunity to see a wide variety of the future career options that are available to him or her? Did you know that the Elk Grove Unified School District offers many career-themed academies and pathways? Here’s your chance to find answers to these questions!
Students in 4th through 9th grades are invited to attend EXPLORE: Map Your Future, an event for students and families to explore career academy and pathway programs. This school year, Map Your Future will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at the SES Hall, 10428 E. Stockton Blvd., Elk Grove, 95624, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Guests may arrive at any time during the two-hour window.
Also, attendees may reserve a spot on a District school bus if transportation is needed (at least one family member must ride with the student on the bus). If interested, please sign up for the bus service by visiting: . Or, you may sign-up at the school’s front office if you are interested.
If you plan to drive, we encourage you to park at Elk Grove High School. A free shuttle service will be available to and from Map Your Future at the SES Hall.

Traffic Flow for Arrival and Dismissal

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we improve the flow of the arrival and dismissal time. We understand that today’s dismissal was a bit frustrating, but we are so happy to see the grace and understanding that you extended to us. It will take some time to get all of the kinks worked out but together we can ensure a safe and efficient arrival and dismissal time!

Here are some reminders:

  • There is no parking in the Arrival and Drop Off Lane. Please pull forward, allow your child to either enter or exit the vehicle and quickly leave the lane so that others can do the same. Make sure your child is ready to exit the vehicle before you arrive.
  • Please do not let your children enter or exit the vehicle on the red curb, any crosswalks, or in the parking lot.
  • 7:30 am-8:10 am will be one way only in the lot. 2:00-3:00 will also be one way only in the lot.
  • The exit on Franklin High Road will be closed for the first 5-7 minutes to allow students to cross. After that, it will be opened for RIGHT turns only. Please do not make U turns on any street to avoid traffic. It only makes matters worse.
  • Do not park or stop in the Bus Loading/Unloading Zone. Soon, we will have several busses that will be using that area and it creates a hazard for our students and bus drivers when cars are parked there.
  • Do not enter the parking lot and double park. Again, it is a very unsafe practice.
  • Do not leave your car at anytime unless you are parked in a designated parking space.

Here is a link to a visual flow chart that you will follow from now on. As we learn and receive feedback, we may tweak it some. We will communicate any changes early and often.

Synergy ParentVue Information

Synergy ParentVue Information
Synergy will be a word that you hear a lot at the start of the year.  Synergy is our new student information system.  However, the most important part of this system is the connectivity it allows parents with their child’s school information.  Parents at Carroll have long asked for a system that enables them to access and monitor grades, check on student information, and even have the ability to change student information (e.g., phone numbers, email addresses, etc.).  Well, that system has arrived.  However, it is going to require parents to follow specific steps:

At Back to School Night parents will receive log-in letters that provide a specific log-in key code for each parent.  These letters are specific for each parent, and they will only be given to the parent that they are addressed to.  So it is vital that BOTH parents come to the Back to School Night on the 18th

EGUSD Update: Gastrointestinal Illnesses and Requested Preventative Steps

As a result of multiple gastrointestinal illness (GI) outbreaks, presumably norovirus, at infant care centers and schools in six Sacramento County schools, Sacramento County Public Health (SCPH) has asked all district school officials in the county to work closely with them to investigate GI illnesses. At this time, there are no confirmed cases of norovirus in the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD). Out of an abundance of caution, however, EGUSD does ask that parents monitor their student for any of the flu-like symptoms…

Pennies for Patients

Monday January 23rd – Friday February 17th

Carroll Elementary School is proud to announce our participation in Pennies for Patients Campaign for the 2017 year. Pennies for Patients raise funds for blood cancer research and patient services. It is an opportunity for our children to learn the satisfaction of helping others and nurture their confidence and ability to make a difference.


MONDAY: Consider setting up an on-line account you can share with family and friends.  Families gathering $100 in donations will be sent a student t-shirt and the student will be recognized at a Friday Rally.

TUESDAY: Check those couches and cars for coins.  Look in your pockets and coin purses and donate to a worthy cause.  You can even go through the laundry in search for coins. Help your class collect the highest coin amount and when a pizza party.

WEDNESDAY: Consider donating to the RALLY VOTING JUGS.  There will be 4 jugs out before and after school.  You can drop coins into the A&C or B&D jug of your choice to vote for that activity at your Friday Rally.  Activity choices are duct tape a staff member to the wall or throw Cheetos at a staff member’s cream topped head.

THURSDAY: Dollars for doughnuts.  The primary & intermediate class turning in the highest currency value will win a classroom doughnut party!

FRIDAY: Teacher/Parent Match – Each Friday a raffle ticket will be given to any teacher that is willing or has a volunteer willing to match (up to a set amount) the donation value brought in that day. Raffle tickets will be collected and a drawing will be held in March or April.  The winner will receive a gift card.   *Coordinate with your child’s teacher*

Look for a flier to come home this week with even more options to help support.
