Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Congratulations to the parents and guardians of the newest members of the Carver MS National Junior Honors Society! I am very proud of our 40 newest members and I appreciate all of the families who came out to show support. Special thanks to our guests from Second Baptist Church for contributing to a Black History Month Assembly to remember!

This week is very important particularly for our eighth graders. As a reminder, our eighth grade students will take their writing SOL Tuesday, 3/5/2019. Please make sure that your student is well rested, eats breakfast and is prepared for his/her SOL exam.

Please join our Foreign Language department for a 11th Annual World Language banquet Thursday, 2/7/19 at 6:30 pm.

As a reminder Chesterfield County Public Schools are closed Friday March 8, 2019.

Thank you and let's have a great week Cougars!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
