New Crusader Teachers and Counselors!

There were 13 newly hired staff members in the Carver Public Schools this year, five of these positions are at CMHS. New hires and their mentors attended a two day orientation in August. Orientation included a bus tour of Carver guided by Roger Shores, long time resident of Carver, bog owner, and retired teacher of CMHS. We welcome Michael Doyle (Special Education Teacher), Jillian Griffin (Music Teacher), Bonnie Moran (Adjustment Counselor), Sarah Varnerin (Math Teacher), and Dawna Vella (English Teacher) to the Crusader family.

In Chemistry class this week, Mrs. Cornock's students turned copper pennies into silver and gold!

Students in Mrs. Booth's science class were challenged to "Save Fred"!

Students in Mrs. Genovese's Art class spent time playing with LEGOS to execute their ideas through hand building. Through LEGO Serious Play, students were challenged to create a concrete form/object such as a duck and then work towards a more abstract idea such as a Summer Memory. They were able to share out their experiences and creative decisions to the class while getting to know a little more about one another on the first day. It was great to see the students sharing LEGO pieces and talking through their ideas during the creation of their work. No sculpture was alike and no pens or pencils required! :)

Football Team Study Hall

The "student" always takes priority over the "athlete" when it comes to the Carver football team. The football program has instituted a study hall that takes place before practice Monday -Thursday. Players meet in the cafeteria to complete school work and are encouraged to seek out extra help with their teachers if necessary. The study hall is managed by the team captains and attendance is taken everyday! Coach Kerwin attends study hall quite frequently and is happy to act as a liaison between student-athletes and teachers should it be necessary.
In Mrs. Townsend's "Navigate The World" class, students discussed the negative effects of emotional "baggage" - what it means to them and how it can impact their daily lives. Students were encouraged to write down anything that they believed to be baggage that was interfering with their lives, or caused them stress. Students reflected on how these concerns can impact them and developed a strategy for dealing with this in the future: simply write it down, crumple it up and throw it away! A bag was displayed on Mrs. Townsend's cart as a reminder of this exercise.
In Mrs. Waitner's Biology and Anatomy classes, students focused on learning lab safety this week, starting with a Safety Scavenger Hunt to find the locations of different safety equipment around the classroom.

freshmen orientation

Many members of the class of 2023 attended our first Freshmen Orientation during their last week of summer vacation. After a spirited welcome from Mr. Schultz and Mr. Martin, students particpated in team-building actitivites with Mr. Fracalossi. Lunch was provided by Carver Police Department officers and Chief Duphily, with our resident grillmaster, Mr. Rota, flipping burgers and dogs. The day was rounded out with an informational session from our High School Counselors, Mrs. McKenna, Mrs. Nolan and Mr. Vance. Additionally, club officers presented information on extra-curricular offerings, endorsing students to get involved! A huge thank you to all students that attended and staff that helped out!
