E1 Goes to the Fair

Mrs. Ciarmataro and Ms. Springett took their E1 students to the Topsfield Fair last week. E1 student Jake said, "It was really cool because I got to see lots of animals and I even got to touch a tarantula, and I also saw a daredevil show." E1 student Suzahna's favorite part was holding the baby chick. "It was so warm and soft!"

Name that Chicken!

Name that Chicken!

Meet Chicken X, the new mascot for the Carlton School's Facebook page. But first our chicken needs a name! Any suggestions? Submit a name for the chicken on our Facebook page or by email tovolunteer@carltonschool.org and we'll pick a winner at random from the entries. Best part: The winner will get a chicken pot pie from Ken's Kickin' Chicken!

So get creative - what should we call this chicken a guy or a girl? On October 7, a panel of chicken-loving judges will choose the best names from the entries and then all Carlton students will participate in a secret ballot on October 8 to pick the winning name. The official name will be announced on October 10.

After that, once our chicken has a name, the games will begin. We're going to start playing "Where's the Chicken?" at Carlton - look for posted pictures of him/her at different spots around the school.
