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.
