Parents' Association

Parents at Carroll School have many opportunities to become involved with the Carroll Community and Carroll’s Parents’ Association (PA) is the primary vehicle for parent participation. Every Carroll parent or guardian is automatically a member of our Parents’ Association.

The PA plans a variety of community events and social gatherings for Carroll families and assists with specific school-sponsored activities. The Parents’ Association leadership is formed in the spring and coordinates the overall structure for the PA events calendar each year.

Parents' Association News - September 22

Parents and Guardians,

It's been wonderful to see everyone at the recent Back to School Nights and Parent Potlucks. Though it's a busy few weeks it feels so great to be able to have multiple opportunities to be together and feel a sense of belonging to our vibrant Carroll community. 

Grade Rep Update:

We're thrilled to have such an energetic team of grade reps this year. Now that we've all had a few to settle in, we'll be providing the team with contact information so they can be in touch to introduce themselves, so look for an email from your grade reps in the coming weeks!

Upcoming Events:

Fall Festival is just around the corner (October 13) and our PA Fall Festival Chairs will be getting underway next week with planning and will be in touch. Stay tuned for some really fun volunteer opportunities!

Grade Level Parent Potlucks:

We hope to see you at an upcoming Grade Level Potluck. PLEASE NOTE: Our original calendar had some of the Potluck dates wrong. Invitations with all the details are either in your inbox or on the way!

CORI Forms for Volunteers

CORI checks are required for all volunteers of any event sponsored by Carroll School or the Parents' Association.

If you are a new volunteer or do not have an up-to-date CORI at Carroll (within the last 3 years), you'll be required to complete the CORI process. The CORI form is quick and easy. All completed forms need to be submitted in person to Mary McNulty.
