Carver Middle High School Education Support Professionals

This month we would like to highlight our Education Support Professionals (ESPs).

Our ESPs play an important role in the education of all of our CMHS students and greatly support our teachers and staff. ESPs can be found working in the classroom providing academic support to students and assisting teachers. Many of our ESPs work behind the scenes of the day to day classroom activities to ensure our school is running smoothly and help to maintain a safe, healthy environment for all. They care about our students and go above and beyond to support them. We are proud to have such a dedicated group as part of our Crusader Family and we thank them for making a difference at Carver Middle High School!

CMHS MET Innovation Pathway Students will be showcasing their work on Wednesday, April 26th from 3:00 - 5:00 to representatives from various industries on the south shore.

Change in Dismissal/Pick-up Procedures

Just a reminder, in an effort to alleviate gridlock traffic on South Meadow Road in the afternoon, there will be a new procedure for student pick-up at the end of the day effective Monday, April 3rd. If you arrive to pick-up your student prior to the 2:05 dismissal bell, you will need to park in the parking lot by the football field/high school gym and your student will meet you in the parking lot. Parking will no longer be allowed in the main driveway and/or in front of the main entrance. The exit route for parent pick-up will remain the same, all parents will exit onto South Meadow Road as the Pond Street Exit is used for buses and student drivers.

Carver Police and Carver Middle High School Staff will be vigilant during this time to support a smooth change of our traffic pattern. I thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we make this transition.


We will be administering the SAT on April 12th. Optional junior workshops will be available throughout the month to support students with career and college exploration.

AP Exams will be held at the beginning of May. More info to follow...
