An update from Mr. Schultz

As part of the "Year of the Nurse and Midwife" celebration, the American Nurses Association "will expand National Nurses Week, traditionally celebrated from May 6 to May 12 each year, to a month-long celebration in May to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing."

It was National Nurses School Nurse Day on Wednesday and the month of May has been dedicated to nurses nationwide. We are so fortunate to have two great professionals who keep the school healthy and look after students and staff when they feel under the weather. Today is also Mother’s Day, and I want to take this opportunity to thank our school nurses and CMHS’s resident surrogate moms, Mrs. Showan and Mrs. Leahy. These two awesome ladies wear many hats during the school day including nurse, mom, friend, big sister and sympathetic ear.

Thank you for everything that you do for the students and faculty of Carver Middle High School!


The Coronoavirus pandemic has highlighted what we already know:


NURSES AND HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ARE THE TRUE HEROES OF OUR TIME!


Happy Nurses Appreciation Month and Happy Mother’s Day!

GRADING REMINDERS

As we head into the last few weeks of school I want to provide clarity on Term 4 grading, credit/no credit, and GPA. In a letter that went out to families on April 13th, it was determined that Term 4 grading would be based on the following criteria:


  • Meets Expectations (M): Student has turned in the assignment, produced quality/thoughtful work, and has met all expectations

  • Approaching Expectations (AP): Student has turned in the assignment, but has not met all the requirements, based on teacher feedback, student should revise their work and re-submit.

  • Does Not Meet (DNM): Student has not turned in any work and the assignment is outstanding.


Based on an aggregation of their scores throughout the term, students will receive a final term 4 grade of either credit/no credit (at the High School) or pass/fail (at the Middle School). There will be no impact on a student’s GPA as a result of term 4 grades.


Current Final Grade Configuration:

  • Term 1 = 30%

  • Term 2 = 30%

  • Term 3 = 30%

  • Midterms (HS), Term 4 (MS) = 10%

*all grades below 55% have been moved to reflect a 55%


Credit/No Credit at the High School: If a student does not participate in Term 4 or finishes the term with a Does Not Meet (DNM), they will lose 1.25 credits toward their overall transcript. Loss of credit could affect graduation and or movement to the next grade level (Each student at Carver Middle High School - Grades 9 - 12 must earn 110 credits to be eligible for a Carver Middle High School diploma). It will not, however, affect their GPA or final grade. For example a student could have a final grade after Term 3 of a B, but get a DNM they will receive only 3.75 credits for a full year course and 1.25 for a semester class toward graduation.


Pass/Fail at the Middle School: If a student does not participate in Term 4 or finishes the term with a Does Not Meet (DNM) their final grade for the year would be impacted by 10% and could result in summer school.


Teachers, Guidance, and Administration are continually monitoring students progress and attendance based on email correspondence, completion of work and attendance at virtual opportunities. As a team we will continue to reach out to students and families to support remote learning through the end of the year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or your child’s teacher.
