The Carlisle Chiefs are in the home stretch as we race toward the completion of the school year. This past week, Mrs. Agnew announced that the last day of instruction for the majority of students will be on May 8th. (Some students completing projects will still continue past that date.) In this weekly series, we are sharing work the students are completing in their virtual classrooms through Carlisle School’s Distance Learning program in action.

What Our Parents Are Saying
“Since March 16th it hasn’t been easy but they are hanging in there and trying to stay focused and complete their work. Google Classroom, Canvas, Google Meet, Zoom, textbooks, and other resources have been great to allow them to continue on as normal if they were sitting in the classroom…the teachers (daily), each grade level director, and the principal have checked on them during this time which has been amazing. I’m so thankful that while this has been a big adjustment neither of them will be academically behind going into the next grade level. I praise the essential workers…but today I’m praising these kiddos and the essential teachers and school staff that are still staying connected and committed to see that they are being successful.” – Shannon Lassiter (mom of three)
