  • Library News Ms. Marcoux Hello from the Carleston Library!

    Happy Thanksgiving from the Carleston Library!

    I am always thankful for the opportunity to hold our Book Fairs. Most

    importantly, I am thankful for the people:

    Parent volunteers who help in a myriad of ways to get the Book Fair off

    the ground and running.

    Teachers & Staff who work around the Library’s crazy schedule (seeing

    every class twice in 6 days!)

    Parents & family who support the Book Fair by purchasing books for

    their Cubs and for their Cubs’ classrooms.

    Also, I thank you for recognizing the importance of reading, and the

    importance of allowing your Cub to read JUST for the fun of it! 😊

    Book Fairs and school breaks are always a scary time for Library books.

    Please be sure to keep track of your child’s books by following the best

    practice of returning them to the backpacks every single night.

    We are reading some really great books in the Library – be sure to ask

    your child about them!

  • Art with Ms. Peters

    Hello Parents & Students!

    The 4th & 3rd grade students are all working on designing and assembling the

    different parts of their Art sketchbooks. The sketchbooks are something new

    that I am trying with my upper level Art students this year and I am very

    excited to see how it works for them!

    The 2nd & 1st grade students are in the middle of their “About Me” project.

    They are working to use images to show different aspects of themselves, the

    things they enjoy or love.

    In Kinder, we are working on our ability to work with a pencil like an artist.

    We are practicing drawing lines and shapes and use those things in our art

    work that we create!

    Pearland ISD has rebranded The Progress. The formerly biannual

    newspaper publication is now published as a quarterly magazine in digital

    and print formats providing parents and community members a glimpse

    of what’s happening throughout the district. To view the online format,
