Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Hopefully everyone had a safe and relaxing Spring Break! Tomorrow begins the start of the fourth nine weeks grading period. We plan to work together to have a strong finish to the school year. Thank you to everyone who came out before the Spring Break to support our Cops v. Kids and Student v. Faculty basketball games. Your support is necessary to make these events possible for our students.

If you have not done so already please remember to complete your student's course request form and return it to school as soon as possible. Students are scheduled to take the Maps Math Assessment Wednesday, April 10. Please ensure that your student has a fully charged chromebook and is well rested in order to perform well on the exam. Carver mornings will return tomorrow, 4/8/2019 to provide additional instructional support for our students.

Thank you very much Carver Community and let's have a great week!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
