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.
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.
