Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Hopefully everyone had a great weekend as students and staff members enjoyed an additional day off Friday. Last week was a busy one as our eighth graders took the Writing SOL and the Foreign Language Department packed the house Thursday Night with an excellent Foreign Language Banquet. Thank you to the scores of parents and guardians who attended and donated dishes to make the banquet a huge success!

We have another important week ahead of us as Eighth garde students will take the multiple choice portion of the Reading SOL Tuesday 3/12/19. Please be sure to make sure that your students are well rested, well feed and well prepared to do their best on the SOL Tuesday morning.

This week also marks the start of Spring Sports. Please come out to show you support for Carver MS sports. Also please use the link below to support Carver Middle School Athletics.

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

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
