Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Principal's Meet and Greet and PTA meeting this week. It was a pleasure meeting so many passionate parents and I look forward to working with all of you throughout the year. We are working toward 100% PTA participation! Thank you to our dedicacated team who serves on our PTA. If you are not a member please use the link below to join as soon as possible.

As a reminder Spring picture day is tomorrow. If your child plans to take pictures tomorrow, he or she should bring back the picture form along with payment. Only children with payments will be photographed. Parents may come to the auditorium with payments if necessary. Children must be made aware if parents intend to pay in person because teachers will only allow students out of class if they are paying for pictures. Checks, cash and credit cards are accepted.

Thanks to all of the Cougars who tried out for Spring sports this past week. I look forward to cheering for our teams this Spring!

Please remember to show your support for our newest member of the National Junior Honors Society Tuesday at 7 pm.

Let's have a great week Cougars!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
