Join us in Empowering Excellence!

Note from the President

As we enter into this season of giving and gratitude, I just want to say thank you to all of you for your kindness, generosity and advocacy of Dragons Care. We could not do this without all of your support and we are incredibly grateful for each and every one of you.

I am also excited to share that we have several heartfelt initiatives occurring within our Dragons Care community. Our upcoming events and fundraisers promise not only to be fun celebrations the whole family can enjoy but also opportunities for us to come together and make a meaningful impact.

In this newsletter, you will read about several ways to get involved, give back, and even do a little holiday shopping—all in support of our incredible staff right here at Carroll ISD. From this Saturday's upcoming Home for the Holidays celebration to shopping from the comfort of your own home online, there are many ways to support Dragons Care this holiday season. And this wouldn't be possible without the generosity of the people in this town who are uniting to #GetLoudWithLove and support our staff.

In closing, I want to express my deepest gratitude to our Dragons Care sponsors. Your generous support empowers our mission, allowing us to make a positive impact in the lives of our staff at CISD and our community. Please consider supporting these local businesses and explore sponsorship opportunities on our website.

Thank you for being the heartbeat of Dragons Care. Your commitment and support make our community stronger, and I look forward to the joyous celebrations ahead.
