    Dear Carlisle Families,

    December is always an exciting time of year.  In Carlisle this month we have a great many classroom and school wide activities taking place.  On December 6th our Kindergarten students will experience the Wingmasters in-school presentation, which features multiple owls and other interesting birds.  We welcome back the program and thank the Carlisle PTO Curriculum Enrichment Committee for making this and so many other special enrichment presentations possible for our students.

    Our 5th and 6th grade band and chorus students will hold a winter concert on Thursday evening December 8th in the auditorium.  The DEICAC will be hosting a Pokemon Card-a-Palooza on December 14th from 3:00-5:00 PM in the Corey Dining Room.  The Drama Club will be performing Willy Wonka Jr.  Two performances are scheduled for Friday, December 16th at 7:00 PM and Saturday, December 17th at 2:00 PM.  Later in December Varsity Basketball starts their season.  Check the district calendar on the homepage of the website for game dates and locations. We hope you will be able to make it out to attend some of these events.

    In the spirit of giving, the second and fifth grade classes have kicked off the 13th Annual Pajama Drive.  They invite you to join them in their community service project of donating warm pajamas to children in need. Please consider donating one, two, or more pairs of brand-new pajamas by Friday, December 16th.

    In the middle of all of this activity we have an early release day on Thursday, December 8th and no school on Friday, December 9th for Middle School Parent/Teacher Conferences and professional development for other staff members.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s experience here in school, I encourage you to reach out to the classroom teachers and set up a time to talk with them.

    I hope you all have the opportunity to enjoy this festive season with family and friends.


    Warm regards,

    Jim O’Shea
