It is truly unbelievable how we seemed to race through the 2012-13 school year! We have less than a month left until the last day of school. We have had many encore and new experiences to share with you and your students, and still, May will be packed with fun things to do on the Carver-Lyon campus. I want to personally invite you to stop in and share in the festivities
As we begin to close out the school year, I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to say "thank you" to all who have volunteered or shared their time and expertise in the many activities we were able to enjoy this year. Whether you helped to raise funds, donated supplies, time or money, or maybe you simply came out to support our students at PTO, you are so much appreciated. If you served as a tutor, lunch buddy, mentor or friend, we thank you. And to those who were not able to come out, but you took the time to read your child's agenda each night, help them with the homework or read them a book before bedtime, you cannot imagine how much of an impact you have made on your child's learning. For whatever your gesture, be it great or small, we appreciate your contribution! On behalf of the teachers, staff, administration, and students of Carver-Lyon, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We could not do what we do without your support!
While we are already doing so many great things at Carver-Lyon, there were some opportunities we were able to add for our students this year. We are proud to be able to induct 8 students into the Jr. Beta Club. We started a vegetable garden for with our first grade friends, and our third, fourth and fifth graders were able to attend the Saturday Academic Camp to prepare for PASS. Fourth and fifth grade students enjoyed an overnight trip at Expedition Sewee in the LowCountry, and our second graders attended an International Festival. Our many successes were detailed in the SIC Report to the Parents that you should have received last week in your child's Tuesday Talk.
We have so much more to celebrate, and I hope you will join us for the great things we have yet to do in the short time we have left this year. Please be sure to mark your calendars:
