Week of 11/20/2023

Hello Carver Families, 

I hope you all have had a great weekend. Thank you so very much for attending our Family Engagement Event: Literacy Night, last week. It warmed my heart to see so many families engaging in activities to promote literacy development at home. I know our continued partnership will have a lasting impact on our Carver Cubs. We are coming up on a very short week of school, but are looking forward to having all of our Carver Cubs back at school tomorrow. Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!


Please take a moment to read the following school and district updates to help guide you and your family for the upcoming weeks of school.
