Carlton Chooses the GRAMMY Winners!

Carlton School will help decide this year’s GRAMMY Award winners! In Music class last

week, Carlton students listened to nominees and cast their votes in the GRAMMY Awards in

various genres. Mrs. Altman is a member of The Recording Academy, which means that she

has the opportunity to vote in the GRAMMYs in 24 categories. She tabulated the students’

votes and completed her official Final Ballot based on their majority votes.

Right now, we will reveal the winners in each grade level only. The overall Carlton

GRAMMY winners will be announced the week before the GRAMMY Awards show, which

will be broadcast live on Sunday, February 8 at 8:00pm on CBS-TV. Then we can see if

Carlton students agreed or disagreed with The Recording Academy’s choices.

Carlton Shows Pats Spirit

You may have your theories about why the Pats won last night, but we know it's because of Carlton School's Pats Spirit. Here, Ms. Eveleth and some of our E2 students show their Pats gear.

Carlton Teachers Awarded SEF Grants Last Night

Congratulations again to Mrs. Lopez and Mrs. Altman (front and center in the photo) for being awarded grants from the Salem Education Foundation at the ceremony last night at Salem High School.

Mrs. Lopez's grant will allow Carlton to host informational bilingual coffees for the bilingual cargivers in our school community.

Mrs. Altman's grant is titled "Dancing Around the World" and will allow Carlton students to continue learning cultural awareness through dance and music. A professional dance instructor will provide weekly dance lessons beginning in February.  This grant ties in wonderfully with Carlton's theme this year of "Around the World in 180 Days".
