Summer Gardening
Get a jump start on logging community service hours AND help keep the Carver garden in shape over summer break. Come work in the garden 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. every Tuesday and Thursday. Send an email to jennifer-fain@scusd.edu to get on the summer gardening list. Signing up ensures students will be notified in the event gardening is canceled; it does not commit students to participating in every session.
Drop-In Registration
On August 21-23 (see times above), parents and students drop in to register for the school year. There are a number of forms to complete including emergency card, lunch application, Parent Guild Volunteer form, etc. Parents can pay for PE uniform, colored pencils and academic planner. When the registration is complete, students can pick up their class schedule. See you there!
