Carver Families! Quarter 1 is well underway! We wanted to make sure we sent you a few important reminders and updates for the 2023-2024 school year. We will continue to connect with families through periodical updates like our newsletter below and more frequently with advisor phone calls and social media. It's important to us that all members of the Carver community feel connected and informed as we move into our best year yet! As always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
UNIFORM POLICY REMINDER
As a reminder, scholars should report to school in full and complete uniform. Full uniform includes the following items:
BOTTOMS: Khaki or Plaid pants ONLY
TOP: Carver T-shirt, College T-shirt, White Polo with GWC Logo, Black Senior Polo with GWC Logo, or White button-down Oxford with GWC Logo
OUTERWEAR: scholars can only wear solid (one color), college, or Carver outerwear
2024 POSSE SCHOLARS
Congratulations to our Class of 2024 Posse Semi-Finalists!
The Posse Foundation identifies, recruits, and trains individuals with extraordinary leadership potential. Posse scholars receive full-tuition leadership scholarships from Posse’s partner colleges and universities.
CELL PHONE POLICY
Cell phones have become increasingly distracting to the learning environment. We have experienced an increase in safety incidents and bullying that stem from inappropriate cell phone use on campus. Instead of focusing on teaching, teachers are competing for scholars' attention in classrooms. Our scholars do not yet understand that what they post on social media can have lasting effects on their futures. Alongside our parents and families, we take responsibility for teaching our scholars how to become more responsible and achieve the highest levels of academic success. By limiting access to their cell phones during the day, scholars will spend more time focusing on learning content and developing the social skills necessary for college success. We believe that our scholars can learn how to appropriately manage their cell phone use on campus when we explicitly teach them how to. This year, GWC will implement a tiered cell phone policy to help scholars build stronger academic and social habits.
