A note from Principal Abrahamson

Dear Carver Families!

Welcome back Carver families and students to another exciting year of learning at Carver. You are not going to believe how amazing Carver school looks with all the construction that has happened over the past year. One of the wonderful benefits of working in a school is the opportunity for a new beginning each September and seeing how everyone has changed over the summer and is adapting to a world still working with a pandemic. We welcome back all our in-person and online learners!

Carver prides itself on building a strong community of learners, setting high expectations for all and continually connecting with students and families. Carver is made up of amazing students, wonderful families, and committed staff members. Carver will be serving about 550 students Pre- Kindergarten - 5th grade this year. We look forward to the start of the school year on Monday, August 30th for grades 1st - 5th and on Tuesday, August 31st for kindergarten. Pre-K does not start until Tuesday, September 7th.

School hours are from (9:30 am - 4:00 pm. It is extremely important that students attend school daily and arrive at school on time. Breakfast will be served starting at 9:20 am each morning.

Carver’s theme for this year is “There is no place like Carver”. It has been a long road with COVID and building a new building. This yellow brick road has led us home where we can honor old memories and create new ones with the new building. We will have to go into the next couple of years knowing there will be a lot of changes, things will go wrong, and that we need to be flexible and make changes as we go. I am so proud of all the hard work that we do here at Carver.

I can’t wait to see everyone at Open House! See you soon!
