    Good Afternoon Carter Middle School Families,



    This is Mr. Watson, Principal of Carter Middle School, and I hope you are having a great weekend.  The weather is getting cold and messy.  If for some reason school is closed due to inclement weather, then board policy states all extracurricular activities are cancelled for that day as well.      



    The Band and Chorus Concerts will be held on Tuesday, December 11th in the gym.  The 6th Grade Band and Chorus will perform at 6 pm.  The 7th and 8th grades will be combined for their concert at 7:30 pm.



    The basketball teams have three games this week.  On Monday, December 10th the teams play at South-Doyle Middle School.  The teams have home games on Thursday, December 13th against Harden Valley Middle and on Friday, December 14th against Gibbs Middle School.   The girls game starts at 4:30 pm and the boys game starts at 5:30 pm.  Admission is $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for students. 



    Order your yearbook before the price goes up.  Early bird discount ends on December 21st.  Order forms are in homerooms, the office or can be downloaded from the website.  A link to order yearbooks online can also be found on the school website.

    If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Manis



    Tutoring is offered every morning from 7:30 am to 8:00am and also on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 3:45 pm to 5 pm.  Please see the school website for a detailed schedule. 



    Every year the school has the Carter Auction and Store.  Students use their PRIDE tickets and Carter Cash earned based on their attendance, behavior, and grades.  During this event students can purchase gifts for love ones or for themselves.   All items in the Auction and Store are based on donations.  If you can donate items or donate money to help support this event, then please call the office.  We also need volunteers to help work the event.  The Carter Auction and Store this year will be on December 20th



    Thank you for your continued support of Carter Middle School and Go Hornets!





    Mr. Watson
