Principal's Message

Greetings Carver Middle School Community!

This week is very exciting as our Book Fair begins tomorrow. As you are aware, literacy is a key component of our academic program. We encourage you to support the book fair and find a great book that you can read along with your student(s). Our librarians and literacy committee are hosting Library Family Night Thursday evening. We hope to see your there!

We have extended our fundraiser turn in. If your student is only a few sales away from receiving an award, we are giving students until Tuesday to turn in funds. Unfortunately on-line sales are no longer available.

Special thanks to our WATCH DOGS! Your presence and support has made a tremendous impact on our program. You are appreciated!

Please join us tomorrow for our monthly PTA Meeting at 6:30 pm.

Thank you very much and have a great week! GO COUGARS!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.

Message from Nurse Natalie

Hello Carver Family-

As I am writing this note to you, it still feels like summer outside, but we are half way through September and as the seasons change students who suffer from allergies and/or asthma may require emergency medication at school. Please if you have not done so already, provide the clinic with an up to date health service plan and emergency medication if needed. Copies of health plans can be found on the CCPS website via the family> health and safety > forms link:

Each school year an updated health plan is needed. If your student lives with seizures, diabetes, or any other health concern that may required treatment at school, please make sure to provide that information to the school clinic also.

THANK YOU PARENTS, I am happy to report that Carver Middle is 100% compliant with our Tdap requirement for 7th graders!

As I continue to review all immunizations for all students in all grade levels you may be receiving a letter from me in the mail. Some students may be missing a final dose of of ANOTHER required vaccine such at a final polio or Hepatitis B vaccine. Immunizations are an important and required part of school. So if you receive a letter from me please take it to your child's primary care doctor or the local health department for follow up. If their is a reason your child can or should not received a certain vaccine please call me to discuss. I strongly encourage all families to speak with your health care providers about getting the yearly Flu vaccine, as flu season has begun.

Finally, please remember to encourage HAND WASHING with your students! Hand washing is the best way to reduce the spread of germs and illness.

If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to call me! Se Habla Espanol tambien!

Thank you and Be Well-

Nurse Natalie
