Week of May 23, 2022

Hello Carver families and welcome to our last “Extraordinary” Week for the 2021 - 2022 school year. My first year, serving as your Principal, has been A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I am so truly thankful for my Carver family. You along with my talented staff have made my first year as Principal exciting, inspirational and joyous.  I am proud to serve a dedicated staff who rise above the continued effects of the pandemic on a daily basis to make sure our Carver Cubs are provided with an “Extraordinary” education. I am proud of our Carver families who partner with us in this work to ensure that we collectively are providing the best education for our students. I am proud of our community partners who support us and our families as we work to make sure basic needs are met so that our Carver Cubs can thrive at school.  Our Carver Cubs have grown leaps and bounds this year.  They strive to do their very best and work hard daily to learn and meet their personal goals. They are extra special and we love them. Please do not let one data point distract you from the incredible successes your child(ren) has made this year. We couldn’t be more proud of our Carver Cubs and know that their futures are bright.
