Owl's Nest Link:


            Carthage Elementary School has once again received a grant from TN 21st Century Community Learning Center for an after-school enrichment program. Owls Nest will meet Monday through Friday mornings from 6:45-7:45 am, and Monday through Thursday afternoons from 3:00-5:00 pm. You have a choice to apply for mornings, afternoons, or both. This program is offered to all students in grades 1-4. This year we are accepting Kindergarten. Kindergarten students who have siblings already in the program will have top priority. Afterschool begins on August 15, 2022.

Students participating in the afternoon program will:
