By Carroll High School

Meghan Parlette '24, Trinity House, with Mrs. Liz Emser

As a freshman, Meghan is already exhibiting strong leadership qualities in the classroom. She is respectful, kind to all of her classmates, and doesn't hesitate to lend a hand. She isn't afraid to laugh at her own mathematical mistakes, which is a good quality to have in life (especially in math class!), but she also accepts the challenge of fixing her errors in order to improve her skills.

Student of the Week Brooke Grieshop '22: February 4, 2021

Brooke Grieshop '22, Trinity House, with Mrs. Nicole Druck

From the first day of Freshman year, Brooke has always been a positive person.  Throughout so many challenges that most of us will never experience, she has risen above them to continue to be a positive person and someone her community can rely on. Brooke gives 110% to anything she does, from academics, to athletics, to being an excellent friend to others. She is using her tragedy to help others in her community by raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of her mom and grandmother. 

-Mrs. Nicole Druck

What activities do you participate in?

I am part of the Carroll Women’s Varsity Soccer team, Spanish Club, Spanish National Honors Society, Wrestling Stats, and a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Student of the year candidate.

What is your favorite part of being a student at Carroll?

The supportive community.  After I lost my mom, the supportive Carroll surrounded me with love. 

What should school “do” for you?

School should provide a “home” outside your actual home. You should be able to come to a safe environment that allows you to focus on your studies while still having the experience of meeting new people and creating lifelong friendships.

What’s a lesson you learned when you overcame a difficult obstacle?

Cherish every moment, as it could be your last. Hug your parents every time you say goodbye. Tell your friend how grateful you are for them. Thank your teachers for all the knowledge they have provided you with. Soak in every little part of life because you don’t know when you will have to say goodbye.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

To be a marine biologist in Florida and solve the red tide problem.

How do you like spending your free time?

I like to spend my free time with my friends, my two dogs, and with my father watching Netflix.

Welcome to Trinity Family Room 210 (2020)

September 09, 2019
By JC Copley '20

Hello everyone! This week has been an exciting week for the Carroll Patriots, especially for Family Room 210. Lead by religion teacher Mr. Brun and captains Abby Bertke and Jc Copley, Family Room 210 participated in Homecoming Spirit Week with gusto. Monday was pajama day, and most everyone showed up in their comfiest PJs. Monday was also the day that Family Rooms voted on their choice of song for the second House Event, which is the lip sync done every year.  Music videos were shown during this time and Family Room 210 had a dance party to go with it. It was very entertaining watching Mr. Brun dance! 

Tuesday was Family Room Color-Coordination Day, in which the Family Room picked what color shirts they wanted to wear on that day. It was a difficult choice for us, but we narrowed it down to three colors and eventually chose white. Tuesday also happens to be Academic Day, so most students were busy studying and doing homework during this time. Wednesday’s theme was 80s-90s Day, and seeing everyone's costumes was like a blast from the past! Thursday was Red, White, and Blue Day, and everyone in Family Room 210 was decked out in Carroll Spirit. The seniors and drama students left Family Room at this time to be a part of the Harlem Globetrotters' commercial. Because the captains of the room were gone, Kenny Shahady '21 took charge and coordinated a game for the room to play. Friday's theme was Tropical, which perfectly matched the Homecoming theme Aloha. The khaki’s and button up tropical patterned shirts were a sight to see! A Pep Rally also took place on Friday, ending up with the Seniors winning the Spirit Stick. Go Pats!

"On the first day of school in Family Room, Jillian took her own initiative to go and welcome the freshmen, talk with each one to learn something about them, and welcome them to Carroll and her Family Room. With her being on the quieter side at times, this was impressive and certainly made an impression on the freshmen." - Mr. Jim Murray, Religion teacher and Trinity House Co-Dean
