Principal's Message

Principal's Message

Dear Carlton Families,


It was wonderful to see so many families at Open House. Students were very excited to show their families all of their beautiful artwork, STEAM projects, and published writing. Clearly, the students have been working hard and having fun along the way! I want to thank all of our teachers, support staff, and parent volunteers for assisting our students and providing them such unique opportunities to develop their skills, curiosity, and creativity.


On Tuesday, May 24th, we are having an outdoor assembly featuring Peter Nestler. He has broken 12 Guinness World Records with his extraordinary jump roping skills! He will not only demonstrate some of his tricks but also deliver a powerful message about working hard to achieve your goals. Don't be surprised if your child comes home and shows an interest in jump roping!


We are very thankful to all of our volunteers! This Wednesday, all volunteers are invited to the Volunteer Appreciation Tea on Wednesday, May 25th at 1:30 pm in our outdoor courtyard.


Please note that next Monday there is no school because it's Memorial Day.



With tremendous gratitude,


Mary Katayama

Dancefest will be on Wednesday, June 1st at 8:45 am. At DanceFest, students in each grade level perform a dance together, out on the primary blacktop. This year, we have decided to hold DanceFest during the school day instead of at night. Family members are invited to watch the show. However, if you have any COVID symptoms, please remain at home. Please wait near the back gate until 8:35 so that students have time to set up their chairs and get to their spots. We will have some chairs for audience members. Please bring a foldable chair from home if you can.

After the show, we ask that all visitors leave the campus for the health and safety of our students. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!


On June 3rd, Dismissal is at 12:15 pm
