A MESSAGE FROM MR. SCHULTZ

Big picture

We made it!!!!!!

Last day of school and the last Carver Chronicles of the school year.


Although we did not finish the school year the way we had planned, we cannot forget all the amazing things that happened throughout the first three terms. Cherish those memories as we head into the summer and don’t forget to thank those people that have made a difference in your growth over the school year. A simple “thank you” goes a long way.


During remote learning, we managed to stay connected and persevere as a school community. There are so many people to thank for the work they have put into this school year. First to our students: you are resilient, and you transitioned your learning to your homes and continued to succeed and grow academically. To our families: you accepted the challenge to support your students while taking care of loved ones and continuing to juggle your daily work and family responsibilities. To the CMHS Teachers and ESPs: you transformed your homes into mini classrooms, never missing a beat and worked day and night to provide engaging instruction (and entertainment) while providing much needed emotional support for your students. Our Guidance and Administrative teams: you worked tirelessly to support students and helped them stay engaged when challenges may have impacted progress. To our custodial and cafeteria staff: you were our essential workers, continuing with your jobs during these challenging times ensuring safe work environments for all, and providing meals for those in need. To our administrative assistants: you continue to be the backbone of our school community which you all maintained throughout the closure. Finally to Mrs. Cabral and Mr. Martin, you have been my rocks throughout the school year. Together we have faced and overcome many challenges and we have become a better and stronger team as a result.


In closing, I want to say that I am proud to represent this amazing school community. The closure has reinforced for me what I already knew to be true of the Carver community: we are strong, we are proud and we will get through any challenge we are faced with. The end of the year brings so many celebrations and new beginnings. Congratulations to the class of 2020, we will be able celebrate your successes on Saturday August 1 for graduation. To the Class of 2024, I am excited to watch you continue your journey into high school. To all of our students, I hope this year has taught you something about life in that you will be faced with unexpected challenges along the way, that you have many people that care about you and that together you can achieve anything you put your mind to. I wish you all a happy, healthy and safe summer break and look forward to our return to CMHS in the fall.


Mr. Schultz

HAPPY RETIREMENT MRS. REED!

We would like to wish Pam Reed, an Educational Support Professional, the best of luck on her retirement. Pam has been with the Carver school system over 15 years. Starting at the elementary school as a one to one para professional, eventually working her way up to the high school. For the last 10 years Pam has been an important member of the POST Program. Her smile and positive demeanor was always welcomed by the students and staff. In addition to her work in the classroom, Pam spent many years volunteering on our Special Olympics teams, traditional as well as our Unified Teams. On her own time, she volunteered to help train the athletes and traveled to many different locations to cheer them on.

Best of luck in the future Pam!

We will miss you!!

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: JAKE COTTER

Big picture

Jake you are a shining light and a great teacher/mentor to all those around you! You have learned to embrace challenges and face them head on, to take life by the reigns and make your own path, to motivate and encourage others to do better to be better!! You advocated for change and inclusion for all, I hope that the students in CMHS can take note that though there may be obstacles in your way or things may not seem so bright right now DON'T let that stand in your way of SUCCESS!!! Jake you are the true essence of what it means to be a Crusader and though I will miss seeing your face and hearing your voice on the announcements on Wednesdays, I cannot wait to hear of all the great things you will accomplish!

Continue to shine bright Mr. Cotter!

CRUSADERS IN (AND OUT OF) THE CLASSROOM

When reflecting on this year, a line from Maren Morris sticks out to me

"The house won't fall when the bones are good."

CMHS community has amazing faculty, students, and families that have all persevered in some way through the last few months. I miss seeing you all learn, laugh, and be weird. I miss craziness, the buzzing in the hallway, listening to your stories and trying to answer your questions. I can't wait to see you all again in person!!

Cheers to all of the Seniors who are closing one door and opening another!! You did it, be proud of yourselves!!

Happy Summer CMHS!!

Smooches, Mrs. Townsend
