Dear Carver Parents,                                                                                                      

We are approaching the half way mark of the 2017-2018 school year. There is an urgency to do all the things we planned to do at the beginning of the year. Some of us have forgotten our 2017 New Year’s resolutions. My most profound goal for this year is to see Carver achieve the status of a “B” school by the end of the year. I have not given up on that goal, but it cannot be accomplished without parental support.  

As we prepare for the second half of the school year, I need your support in ensuring some very significant issues are addressed. First, unless there is an emergency, please allow your child to remain at school for the full instructional day (3:25 P.M). Second, inform your child to seek adult intervention to resolve conflict, fighting does not work. Everyone loses instructional time and privileges. Finally, when your child informs you “there is no homework today”, inform them that iReady is homework every day.  

The holidays will afford each family time to spend together so we invite you to join us for Christmas lunch and do those things that promotes love and unity. There exists in the world a tremendous amount of hate and violence. We can’t stop it, but we can do the things that we know will prevent our children from becoming a statistic of violence. Our children learn more from what we do than what we say. They must learn that people are more important than things and that they have the ability to determine their future. Instead of resolutions, set goals for life. A great conversation this holiday season is “what do you want to be when you grow up” and “how will you accomplish that goal?” 

I am implementing procedures the 2nd semester that will help us with the goal of becoming a “B” school. 

  • Students will not be call down for early dismissal after 2:30 P.M. without a note or phone call prior to 2:30 P.M. The continuous disruptions in classes result in all students missing instructional time. 
  • As previously stated, Administrators will only be available for conferences between 7:00 A.M. – 8:30 A.M. and after 3:30 P.M. We must be available to monitor what is going on in classrooms.  
  • Finally, to those parents who create a disruption because you disagree with the policy, you will be escorted from the property by security. To some parents these statements may appear harsh, but their intent is not.

 

I know that without a solid foundation in literacy, math and problem solving skills, the ability to become successful in the 21st century is diminished.  I would like to wish each and every one of you a safe and joyous holiday season. Remember the reason for the season and pass it on!

 

Respectfully,
