SUBJECT: Carlisle PTA November Howler

Carlisle Logo
November Howler

Don't forget Daylight Saving time began on November 7 and you need to roll your clocks back!  The tardy bell rings at 7:40 am.  Any student who is tardy will need to be signed in by their parent (unless of course they rode their bike unaccompanied to school).  

Trunk or Treat Success!

We hope everyone had fun at our first ever Trunk or Treat event. How amazing to have our staff, students and community come together since our last event in 2019!! We hope to continue this tradition for years to come! 

We were able to collect 202 pounds of cans for the North Texas Food Bank which equates to 168 total means provided to hungry neighbors. Great job! 

Thank you to our sponsors - Triton Roofing, Goldreich Orthodontics, Jim Montgomery Swim School and Family Audiology. Last minute shout out to Credit Union for donating candy as well as all the families who contributed.


In-person Book Fair is BACK!  This means Carlisle needs volunteers to set up, run, and tear down the book fair, which will be held in the library, Nov. 15-19. 

Set-up will happen the Friday before Book Fair, on Nov. 12th. You can volunteer to help set up by clicking here:

Volunteers are needed to run cash registers, restock shelves, and assist little shoppers in two-hour shifts all week long! Sign up for one or more shift by clicking here:

Teardown is super fast and easy, when lots of folks pitch in. Sign up to help break down the fair by clicking here:

More information (setting up eWallets, donating so financially insecure kiddos can shop, and what to expect at this year's fair) is coming soon!

Watch DOGS is Back!

Carlisle Dads & Father Figures-

It is finally that time again to spend a day with the kids and represent for the Watch DOGS. It's quick and easy this year. Since we couldn't have the pizza party and sign up event; we have created the calendar on VOLY (the volunteer website) so you can submit your background check and sign up all in one place. So.........
1) Create your account in VOLY
2) Submit your background check
3) Once approved, go to Find Opportunities
4) Select Schools and enter Carlisle Elementary
5) Select PTA Watch DOGS Signup

At that point you can maneuver about the calendar and select the day you would like to volunteer.

If you have any questions or issues please reach out to me @

I look forward to see you all up there!!!
