What Our Parents Are Saying
“Carlisle School genuinely cares for the students. Whether it be academically or mentally. The guidance counselor is still on the job during the shutdown. Destiny says, ‘I’m so glad they still care for us even in quarantine. Mrs. Tisdale checked on me today’. This gesture was greatly appreciated during a time of isolation from her school family.” – Anishia Johnson
“Lots of fun and laughter through Pre-K Distance Learning, thanks to Mrs. Martin!” – ️Harper Family
“We have been SO impressed by the Carlisle distance learning program. Our preschooler is so excited for Mondays when she can see her friends and teachers! Miss Swanson has gone above and beyond with the lesson planning and accessible technology. We have painted, done scavenger hunts outside, made crafts, played counting games, and more. Our daughter was especially excited when she sent the library, music, and Spanish lessons too. Thank you so much for bringing some structure and fun to us during the chaos. I hope to look back and treasure this extra time spent with my daughter and appreciate all the hard work put in by all of you for her continued education.” – Stephanie Sherrill
