Slideshow: CES Fall 2013 Field Trip

On Thursday, Oct. 17 Carroll Elementary fourth graders attended a field trip to the Dallas World Aquarium. The visit concluded lessons on Ecosystems including food chains and food webs. The students were able to participate in a real life experience of the ecosystems. Below are photos of the field trip provided by Carroll Elementary School.

The Giving Spirit at Carroll Elementary

Carroll Elementary made the holidays brighter for 140 children through Christmas is for Children.

CES kindergarten teacher Mrs. Meacham and her class adopted a holiday “angel” again this year. The recipient is a 6 year old boy.  All students helped with purchasing items and wrapping them for the child.

The photo slideshow below features pictures from the Christmas is for Children drive as well as snapshots from Mrs. Meacham’s class.

Classroom Feast for Carroll Kindergarteners

Students at Carroll Elementary School enjoyed a special lunch last month.

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Meacham and Ms. Small’s classes shared a classroom feast just before the Thanksgiving break.

The students learned the story of the first Thanksgiving, including the arrival of the Pilgrims on the Mayflower. All of the students took part in role playing by dressing up in costume.
