    Good Afternoon Carter Middle School Families,


    This is Mr. Watson, Principal of Carter Middle School, and I hope you are having a great weekend! 


    We will be distributing iPads next week on August 21st-23rd.  Prior to a student getting an iPad they must have all their iPad paperwork returned.  6th grade parents and any parent of a student new to Carter Middle School will need to attend the iPad Training prior to your student getting an iPad.   If you have not attended a IPAD training then call the school office to schedule a training during the school day. 


    School pictures will be tomorrow Monday, August 19th.  Order forms went home last week and you can also go to our school website to order using the Lifetouch link.  Make sure to bring your order form and dress nice for your pictures tomorrow.  These pictures will be used in the yearbook, so look nice.


    Even though we did not earn Reward School status we had a good year at Carter Middle School.  For the second year in a row we earned a Level 5 in our School-wide Overall Composite and continue to show increases in student proficiency.  We will continue to work hard to make sure we continue to make academic gains. 


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



    Mr. Watson
