From the Principal’s Office
Mrs. Ruby Maestas, Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This school year will be unlike any other we have experienced in our lifetimes. In fact, we predict that our students will be talking about the experiences of 2020 for the rest of their lives!
Like all of you, we too are anxious about how the school year will look and feel. However, we want to reassure you that we have the BEST teaching team working diligently for your children and we can’t wait to see them and welcome them on their first day. This Fall we are opening our doors so to speak with our first day of school virtually for everyone. Some of our students have elected the hybrid model, while others will begin in the full remote learning model. Regardless of how we are ‘starting off’ we are committed to continuing to build a community of learners who can grow and achieve together.
Our collaborative and driven group of educators will strive to have every student reach their highest potential regardless of the obstacles ahead of us brought on by COVID-19. As many of you already know, our staff of teachers, education support paraprofessionals, and administrators will be engaging in 10 days of Professional Development prior to the start of the school year with your children. The purpose of these training days is to build on the skills that will be necessary to provide a nurturing and welcoming learning environment for the students. The Safe and Supportive Schools team of teachers, paraprofessionals, parents and community members developed a mission statement that we want to share with you:
Carver Elementary School strives to ensure a safe and supportive school for all by taking meaningful steps to foster a nurturing environment.
To align with our SSS mission, our team will continue the important work of rolling out action steps this school year with a focus on the following priority areas:
- Policies and Procedures
- Classroom Strategies and Techniques
- Collaboration and Linkages with Mental Health
It will take ALL of us working and communicating together to make this work. We are counting on one another! Thank you for trusting Carver Elementary to be a part of your child’s educational journey.
