A Letter From Our Principal
Dear Carrington Families,
Happy March to my wonderful students and families!
I hope this letter finds you well! Admission season is in full force and we are well underway with our In House registration for Private Pre-K, TK and Kindergarten. Our In House registration has ended, and our programs have been opened up to the community. PLEASE do not delay with your registration as our most of our private programs are close to going on a waitlist. We are incredibly blessed to welcome so many new families to join the Carrington Family!
I am so excited for the month of March, and all that it brings! I can’t wait to see the children’s faces light up as they search for the sneaky leprechaun around the school. Our school-age students will surely be crafting some elaborate leprechaun traps as well, and I always look forward to seeing their creativity in action.
Not long after St. Patrick’s Day, we will invite our families to join us for our annual Easter egg hunts and class parties. This is always such a fun, family gathering event, and I love to listen to the infectious giggles of the children as they search high and low for hidden treasures!
I am so excited for Spring, sunshine, warmer weather, and Daylight Saving Time. I hope that this time of year allows you some time to relax and reflect, and enjoy a picnic or two!
We have a very busy year ahead and a time when students make incredible growth and celebrate successes. Thank you for allowing me to participate in your child’s life.
