Principal’s Message

Welcome to

Carlile Elementary School

Dear Carlile Family,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year!  I hope the summer months have provided you with some rest, relaxation, and an opportunity to rejuvenate. We are excited to have students back in our classrooms filling them with enthusiasm for learning!

I am honored and privileged to lead a dynamic community where teachers and staff cultivate a positive learning environment.     I am extremely fortunate to belong to a school culture focused on student achievement, high expectations, collaboration, and teamwork.   At Carlile, we are committed to providing an intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers and creative problem solvers prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.   With our school’s aim of having a greater emphasis on improving academic outcomes and high expectations for all staff and students,  Carlile will continue to incorporate  C.A.T.S. ---Caring, Achievement, Teamwork, and Success.   

We want your child to be happy and successful at Carlile and believe that you play a key role. That role is to continuously show interest in and support for your child. Here are several ways that family members of our school community can work together with the Carlile Staff:

  • ·         Send your child to school every day on time.
  • ·         Make sure your child gets at least eight hours sleep each night
  • ·         Establish a routine for studying.
  • ·         Attend school wide events, classroom events and conferences.
  • ·         Celebrate your child’s success (giving verbal praise), no matter how small it may seem. 

The child who knows that his or her family is interested in and supports the school program will almost always have fewer problems in school and will enjoy greater success. We believe that communication among parents, students and teachers is critical in assuring student success. You can find information on our school website and on our Carlile School Facebook page.  You should receive a weekly update through School Messenger as well.  Please be sure we have your correct phone number so you can receive this important information. Also, you can find upcoming events on our school calendar located on our school website.

In conclusion, I wish you all a fantastic school year!  If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Let’s make it another great year at Carlile and remember……Every Child, Every Day, We are Carlile C.H.A.M.P.I.O.N.S.!
