Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo! As you are aware, Spring SOL testing begins tomorrow. It is very important for students to continue to study hard, eat well and get plenty of rest. It is also important for student to make sure that their chromebooks are fully charged every day. Students are scheduled to take their English reading test this week. Eighth graders are scheduled to test tomorrow. Sixth and Seventh graders are scheduled to test Tuesday.

Please join me in displaying gratitude during Teacher's Appreciation week! We sincerely appreciate all that our teachers do. Our teachers go above and beyond the call of duty everyday. Our teachers work after hours to provide students with additional help, provide inspiration, say kind words when they are most needed and and challenge students to grow. Often times without receiving a thank you. On behalf of the Carver Middle Community I would like to say thank you to all of the teachers in the Carver Middle Family for all that you do and have done for children! If you are able to read this Newsletter, please thank a teacher!

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
