Carver Middle School Newsletter
April 26, 2020
Hopefully this email finds our Carver Community in the best of health! I sent a course verification letter via email to our Carver families last Friday. A link to the same verification form is included in this newsletter. This is a very important process in selecting courses for the 2020-2021 school year. Please reach out to your school counselor with questions or concerns for next school year.
Friday also marked the conclusion of the third trimester. Please expect communication from instructors if your child was not successful in any class to date. We plan to work with parents to develop a plan to ensure success for all Cougars. Leave no Cougar behind!
Please continue to utilize our online learning lab the, Cougar Den, to access new learning opportunities. Paper copies of assignments are available for pickup every Tuesday from 8 am- 1 pm.
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).
