Principal's Message

Greetings Carver MS,

What a week at Carver MS! Last week was a ton of fun at Carver MS. We had excellent instruction, a Black History Month Assembly, a Student-Teacher Volleyball contest and a huge commitment to our fundraising activities. Thank you to everyone who has already turned in funds for candy sales. Use the flyer below to help raise funds for Carver MS literacy.

As you are aware, Tuesday, March 3 is a student holiday. Thank you very much to everyone who has signed up and donated items to support our pancake breakfast for teachers Tuesday. It's not too late to sign up for donations. Please use the link here.

This week is also action packed at Carver MS. We have a Center Based Gifted meeting tomorrow at 6:30 in the auditorium. Our Foreign Language Banquet is Thursday night and Carver Day at Panda Express is Friday from 11 am-9 pm at the new Panda Express in Chester.

We look forward to seeing you throughout the week!

Thank you very much and have an awesome week Carver MS!

This organization will be comprised of dads, grandfathers, uncles, big brothers, and any other male role models in the lives of our students. We want our WATCH D.O.G.S. to volunteer their time in our school to better enhance the learning experience for all of our students, teachers, and staff.
