Principal's Message

Greetings Carver Middle School Community!

We have a busy week ahead of us. Our students will take the Winter MAP tests this week. Students will take the MAP reading test tomorrow and the MAP math test Wednesday. Please remind you student to charge his/her Chromebook to ensure that it is fully charged for testing.

The PTA Winter dance is scheduled for this Friday after school. Tickets and permission slips will be available during lunch Wednesday and Thursday. Tickets are $5.

We hope to see you at our boy's basketball games and Winter concerts over the next two weeks as your support is vital to our success.

Thank you Carver Community!

Transportation Update

Some of you received letters from our transportation department indicating a that change was made to your student's bus route. Overall the changes worked well and transportation went very smoothly last week. Please use this link to check bus routes. If your child walks to school, please be sure to remind him/her to use the side walk or walk as close to the curb as possible. It is also helpful to have reflective tags on his/her book bags and visible clothing as it is very dark in the morning and lighting is limited in many of our neighborhoods.


Carver Middle School is looking to launch our own WATCH D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) organization. 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. We will take any time you have to be in our building and be an additional presence of support for our school. If you are interested, please reach out to Mr. Nathanial Wiedenhoft at or at 804-524-3620 extension 144.

Valentine's Day Blood Drive

We are looking to host Community Blood Drive on Valentines day in 2020. This is a half day of school for students and the perfect opportunity for us to give back. Please click on this link if you are interested. We must notify the Red Cross several months before the drive with an estimated count of participants. Thanks in advance for your support!
