K-1 assessment days Sept. 4 & 5 – their first day is Sept. 6 Beginning fall of 2018, families of K-1 students will schedule a 30- to 40-minute assessment conference on Sept. 4 or 5. The first day of school for kindergarten and grade 1 will be Sept. 6. Eastern Carver County Schools elementary schools are building off of a current practice where kindergarten students have an assessment time with the teacher before the start of the school year. Parents/guardians should plan for an hour in order to prepare information or complete forms prior to the conference. A large portion of time will be devoted to the student to complete assessments with the teacher or a paraprofessional. This conference has three goals: Students will be on track with their learning earlier in the year. Teachers get to know their students individually right from the start and can plan more personalized instruction earlier in the school year. Parents/guardians can have one-to-one time with the teacher before... Continue reading 2018-19 School Year Calendar change for K-1st grade

Will students be able to use the district-issued Chromebook during the summer? Students in grades three through eleven who were issued a Chromebook this year will be allowed to take their Chromebook home for the summer. During that time they will be responsible for taking care of their district-issued device. If a family does not want their child to have the Chromebook over the summer, the student must return the Chromebook and charger to their school’s media center before leaving for the summer. When school resumes in the fall, the same Chromebook and charger will be returned to the student during the first week of school. Consider a Protection Plan to reduce or eliminate potential fees (chargers are not covered by the protection plan) from accidental loss or damage. During the first or second week of school (each school will provide detailed directions), incoming sixth and ninth grade students will exchange their current Chromebook for a new one. Returning your Chromebook Think... Continue reading Summer 2018 Chromebook Information

This month’s district theme is KINDNESS. One way that Carver Elementary plans to show kindness during this busy holiday season is by sponsoring our SPREAD KINDNESS Holiday gift card program. Beginning November 20th, we will be collecting gift cards to support our own Carver families during the holiday season. In line with November’s theme of KINDNESS, our gift card collection will run from November 20th to December 1. Distribution will take place on Friday December 15th. Gift card ideas include restaurants, gasoline, grocery or clothing (Target, Walmart, Super America, Cub Foods, etc.). Children can help by including a Kindness Card wishing someone happy holidays or any other well wishes with the idea that “KINDNESS IS FREE SPRINKLE THAT STUFF EVERYWHERE”. Hopefully, by providing some assistance to families for the basic essentials, our families will have a little something extra for the holiday season. Families needing assistance and not receiving assistance from elsewhere may... Continue reading Spread Carver Kindness
