Carver Middle School Newsletter
April 13, 2020
Hopefully everyone was able to enjoy time with family and remain healthy over the Holiday weekend. New learning materials will be presented to students starting tomorrow. We will have office hours on Tuesdays from 8 am -1 pm for families who do not have access to the internet. If your student has access to the internet to complete assignments you do not need to pick up paper copies of assignment.
Please continue to utilize our online learning lab the Cougar Den to access your student's assignments. Please use this site to access assignments and enrichment activities as we continue remote teaching and learning. Please reach out to me or individual teachers if you have questions about our distance learning program.
Thank you for your support and please encourage your student to continue to work and complete the lesson that our teachers are working hard to prepare.
Be safe and healthy.

ENCOURAGE OUR COUGARS TO READ DAILY!
Studies show that thirty minutes of Reading per day day can improve social, emotional and brain development!
ACCELERATED READER is open for students to take quizzes from home, 8:00 A.M.-8:00 P.M. each day. Students are on their honor to follow the same rules for taking a quiz at home as at school (please don't use the book while taking a quiz).
