SPORTS PHYSICALS

The State of Michigan requires students to have a completed sports physical BEFORE tryouts begin for any sport team. Forms are available in the school office and on the MHSAA website:

CARTER WEBSITE

  • Our website includes links to classroom webpages, daily announcements, parent resources, building and district information, the Carter monthly newsletter, and much more!

ELECTRONICS

Encourage face-to-face interaction by putting away devices (including yours) at set times, such as during meals, family outings, or game night. If you're using a device and your child interrupts, switch your attention to him/her. You'll help your child see that the person in front of them is more important than what's on the screen.

"The time is always right to do what is right." Martin Luther King Jr.

BE THERE!

Being in school all day, every day, helps your child get the most out of middle school. Encourage good attendance with these ideas:

  • Point out that there is no substitute for being in class. Your youngster needs to be present to hear teachers explain concepts, to participate in group projects and class discussions, and to ask questions.
  • Schedule doctor, dentist, and orthodontist appointments before or after school hours whenever possible. If you can't, try to arrange them for lunchtime.
  • It will be easier for your child to get up on time for school if he has had at least nine hours of sleep. Set a reasonable bedtime and make sure he puts away electronic devices so he isn't tempted to stay awake to read messages or play games.
