Week of March 6, 2023
Hello Carver Families!
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Thank you to all who came out to support our 2nd and 3rd grade Carver Cubs during their musical performance Thursday evening. It was a full house! I know our Cubs appreciated seeing you there and celebrating their hard work. It was truly an amazing show! Shoutout to Ms. Boykin for her leadership and creativity. She is doing an awesome job of creating opportunities for our Carver Cubs to shine. We are excited and proud that they will be performing again this week as a part of The Stars In The East Show being held at East Wake HS on Thursday at 7pm. Tickets are $10.00 and are being sold at East Wake HS on March 8th from 6pm - 9pm and the day of the show while tickets last.
Something special is happening at Carver Elementary:
Our 5th grade students will be participating in a Special Olympics event with our ECSI, ECSII, ID Severe classes and some of our Pre-K students this Friday. Because of Ms. Scott, grade 5 teacher, Carver is a Special Olympics Unified Champions School. Ms. Scott is passionate about sports and how it can be used to support and promote inclusion. We are excited for our students to have this opportunity and look forward to this becoming a schoolwide event in the future.
