It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to Carver Elementary for the 2022–2023 school year. The team has done an exceptional job preparing our classrooms and campus and we are all eager to welcome our students and families to what promises to be a wonderful school year.
Some important dates on the 2022-2023 School Calendar can be found on our school website, carverschool.us. The first day of school is Aug. 10.
Carver is truly a special place. We are a family school that is built upon a healthy pursuit of excellence in all regards. There is a deep-seated culture of collaboration, joy and commitment among our staff, students and our families. All members of the Pioneer community support our students in becoming lifelong learners who are inspired to reach their highest potential. Our teachers are committed to innovating and applying instructional strategies to connect with and to reach all students. Carver empowers students to identify and achieve their goals by being student-centric in everything that we do.
Carver is blessed to have a very supportive community and devoted families that share a unity of purpose in creating expectational learning environments and experiences for all of our students. We are grateful for the San Marino Schools Foundation, the Carver PTA and the Carver Enrichment Fund, and the SMUSD District Office. There is an outstanding caliber of volunteerism and generosity that support our students’ amazing academic outcomes.
We welcome our new and returning families to a new school year. Our school is here to serve our children and to partner with our families in our shared journey of promoting student academic growth and character development. Please check our school website at carverschool.us for exciting events that we have this year.
