Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Thanks to everyone who participated in Sprit week! We had a great time showing our Cougar Pride. We have a short but impactful week ahead of us as we celebrate President's Day Monday. Thank you to the parents who made it to the first Principal's Meet and Greet session last week. I look forward to meeting even more of our Carver family members Tuesday, 2/19/19 at 5:30 during the second Meet and Greet. Our monthly PTA meeting will follow at 6:15.

Tuesday also marks the beginning of the Spring sports season as tryouts for girls soccer and track & field commence after school.

Let's have a great week Cougars!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
