Students in grades three, four, and five will take the SC Ready (and SC PASS) test again this week. We want all of our students to do their very best on these tests. Please have conversations with them about putting forth their best effort while testing. We want them to take their time and read/answer questions carefully. Please make sure students are present and on time during our testing days. They will need to arrive to class by 7:40 each morning. Students will need to eat breakfast and get plenty of rest at night. (Students are able to eat breakfast in our cafeteria from 7:00 AM to 7:35 AM each day.) Students who are testing will not be allowed to get signed out of school in the middle of testing.

Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is taking place now for all students!

Parents will be required to provide proof of residency for all students. In addition, kindergarten students and new students will need to submit birth certificates and immunization records.

Children must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2022.

Please visit our school or district websites for additional information regarding kindergarten registration.

Dress Code Reminder- View your child's agenda for our dress code guidelines.

As the warm weather continues, please be mindful of the school’s dress code that is listed in the student agendas. We will follow the “skin test” or “fingertip rule” described below to determine if skirts and shorts are the appropriate length. We ask for your cooperation in allowing your child to do the “skin test” when you have concerns about whether the length of the clothing is appropriate for school.

Excerpt from Student Agenda/Student Code of Conduct:

1. Shorts, skirts, etc., must be long enough so that when hands are extended by the side (skin test), the student does not touch skin.

2. Tank tops (halter tops and spaghetti straps included) are not allowed. All shirt straps must be at least the width of two fingers.

We will follow the recommendations from the District’s Code of Conduct when students to do not follow the dress code.

A Snapshot of STEAM Learning at Carver

Ms. Barrineau's First Grade Field Trip: Students learned about how Florence has changed over time by looking at fossils! They even made their own fossils by using a coffee, salt, water, and flour mixture and imprinting plastic dinosaurs and seashells into that mixture.

EdVenture Children's Museum- Mrs. Ward's Class had so much fun!

Mrs. White's kindergarten class did a service project last week in which they removed discarded toys and trash from their playground area and planted a garden. Thank you to these students and their teachers!
