    Good Afternoon Carter Middle School Families,


    This is Mr. Watson, Principal of Carter Middle School, and I hope you are staying dry and safe on this stormy afternoon.


    We start TN Ready Testing this Tuesday, April 16th.  This Tuesday the students will take the ELA Part 1, which is the writing assessment.  Next week April 23rd through April 26th the students will take the remainder of the TN Ready Tests that are on paper.  This is the schedule of tests for that week.     Tuesday, April 23rd- ELA Part 2 and Math Part 1; Wednesday, April 24th- Math Part 2 and Math Part 3; Thursday, April 25th- ELA Part 3 and Part 4; and Friday, April 26th- Social studies Part 1 and Part 2.   We will start testing each morning at 8:30 am and be finished by 11 am. Students have to take the tests for each subject in order and if they leave in the middle of a sub-part, then their score is nullified for that subject.  It is important that students are on time to school each day and they stay the entire testing time, so they are on schedule and that their test will not be nullified.  For this week please try to move appointments to the afternoon or to at least after 11 am, so students can complete their tests before leaving.  The PTSA is going to provide a treat each day for the students that test that day.   We want students to do their best and to demonstrate what they have learned this year.  Everyone has worked super hard to get ready for this moment and now is the time to shine!


    Carter Middle Academics and Arts Night is this Thursday, April 18th.  We will be showcasing our students’ art and other projects from their classes.  The Jazz Band will perform and the Ensemble.  Parents and students will also be able to attend some sessions on STEM activities such as: Virtual Reality Goggles, Breakout Boxes, Maker Space, and coding.  Parents will also have an opportunity to get some resources for TN Ready practice.  All the fun starts at 5 pm.


     Game Club will meet Monday after school and Art Club will meet Wednesday after school.  Both end at 5 pm.


     YOKE will meet Tuesday night at 7 pm in the Carter Middle School Gym.


     The track team will have a track meet on Monday, April 15th at CAK.


     Cheerleading try-outs for the Carter Middle School cheerleading team will be Thursday, May 9th.  There will be a mandatory clinic on Monday, May 6th and Wednesday, May 8th to teach the routine for the try-out.  Each student trying out must have a current physical dated after March 1st.    Students interested in trying out need to pick up a packet from Mrs. Mays.


     Each grade level has a field trip coming up in May and those permission slips have been sent home and need to be returned.  Starting this Monday all payments to the school need to be cash or you can go online and pay, but we can no longer take checks.


     Tutoring is offered every morning from 7:30 am to 8 am and is offered in the afternoons on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Check out the school website for schedule or call the front office.
