Board names Katrina Bailey new principal for Caraway
Katrina Bailey
May 15, 2014 – The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees approved Elsa England Elementary School Assistant Principal Katrina Bailey as the next principal of Kathy Caraway Elementary School during its regular board meeting Thursday night.
Bailey, who began her career in education administration as an assistant principal at Live Oak Elementary School prior to assisting in the opening of England three years ago, will replace Shelly Hohmann, who is retiring after serving Caraway for 12 years as a principal and Round Rock ISD for 30 years. 
Bailey was one of 106 total applicants for the position and one of six to be chose for a community interview earlier this month. Bailey was then recommended for hire by the Round Rock ISD administration.
A graduate of Huston-Tillotson University and Texas State University. Bailey served the Austin and Pflugerville school districts as an elementary school teacher, prior to joining Round Rock ISD as the academic dean at Gattis Elementary School. 
Caraway serves about 700 students. The school includes about 65 total staff members. Teachers have an average experience level of 9.6 years. The school met the 2013 accountability standard from the state, earning all three possible distinction designations, Reading/ELA, Mathematics and Top 25 percent Student Progress.


Ga-Ga Ball Court Now at Caraway
Ga-Ga Ball Court

Eight girls from Troop 134 have earned their Bronze Award by constructing a Ga-Ga Ball court at Caraway for kids to play in.  Ga-Ga Ball  is a fun and competitive game where the object is to to hit, or slap, the ball (not throw it) into another player's leg. It must hit at the knee or below to get someone out.  It can be played with any number of players that can fit into the octagonal court.  Caraway kids can now play at recess or as a class in the new court by the soccer field.  So please feel free to bring them out to play.  All you need is a playground ball.  Lightweight, bouncy play balls work best, but rubber foursquare balls or volleyballs can also be used.  Just be careful when slapping the ball to not hit it too hard.  There are currently two Ga-Ga balls at Caraway, one resides with the 5th Grade and the other with Coach Cavazos.

Announcements


Student Google Accounts will be Disabled for the Summer

The consensus of the district is that there are supervision and safety concerns during a time of the year when there are few administrators centrally or on campuses to deal with them quickly which puts the district in a vulnerable position. 
The consensus decision is to disable student Google accounts for the summer in current grades K-7, and re-enable for students in Summer School, Summer KICKS and Summer EOC Testing. Students in current grades 8-12 accounts will be left enabled and active. The reason for leaving grades 8-12 active is to allow for clubs and organization sponsors to continue to send updates.
