Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

We had an action packed week capped off with the PTA student dance Friday afternoon. Thank you very much to our PTA for hosting this event and for all of their support of our school! It was a pleasure meeting so many future students, parents and community members as we greeted our rising 6th graders during our concert and the Open House Thursday evening. Thank you to the school counseling team and all the teachers who were present to answer questions and support this event.

We have another exciting week ahead of as we celebrate spirit week. I also look forward to meeting you Wednesday at 5:30 pm in the library for our first Principal's meet and greet. Please see below for key updates for this week and the remainder of the month.

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
