Dear Newly Assigned to Carnage Families:
Welcome to the Fred J. Carnage GT/AIG Basics Magnet Middle School FAMILY! Even though you will officially start next year, to us you’re already FAMILY. On behalf of our faculty, staff, and students, I want to thank you for choosing Carnage. I, along with my entire staff are dedicated to providing each student with equitable access to all educational opportunities available in our school.
Even if you have already attended a school tour or Magnet Open House, we’d like to see you at a special welcome event, just for FAMILY.
Carnage Middle School Curriculum Expo FAMILY Night
March 15, 2016 (6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.)
Our Curriculum Expo FAMILY Night is an excellent opportunity for parents and students to interact with elective teachers and the electives they teach. In order to plan for you, please use this Curriculum Expo link, which will take you to the Curriculum Expo sign up. Although we’d love to see all new families, if your schedule will not permit your attendance, let us know and we will email the information.
Selecting electives will be done on line this year. This process is new to middle schools, therefore we encourage you to look though our elective catalog here. Please note while the catalog represents all the possible offerings it may not guarantee all classes. We ask all new students to make a list of 10-20 classes based on interest, from a variety of subject areas, in preparation for registration. If the chosen elective requires an audition, check our school calendar in April for try-out dates; which will take place in the spring.
Remember, although your child has been selected to attend Carnage next year, his or her records will remain at the current elementary school until mid-summer. Therefore, please refer all questions regarding core class placement to your elementary school counselor. For Special Education IEP or 504 questions, please speak with your child’s elementary case manager.
To stay informed about school activities and events, I strongly recommend that Trojan FAMILIES check the Carnage GT/AIG Basics Magnet Middle School website , and follow our Twitter feed @CarnageMagnetMS
Welcome to the FAMILY!
