Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Thank you very much for an awesome week! We had several successful events this week to include our Summit learning night, Mega Mentors recognition Dinner our Summer Reading Palooza and the week was capped off with the eighth grade dance. Thank you to everyone who came out to the various events and to support our students and our school-wide programs. We really appreciate your willingness to support our students at Carver MS.

While the school year is coming to a close please continue to encourage your students to come to school ready to learn everyday. SOL re-testing will continue this week. Many students have summative assessments in the form of test or major projects and they should continue to maintain an academic focus and stay well behaved.

Thank you very much and have a great week Carver family!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
