I hope this email finds you well, refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for the new year. Hopefully, you took time to connect with family and friends over the summer and enjoy some relaxation before heading back to school.
It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to an amazing opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of students. We have been working diligently to ensure that our 2023 -2024 school year will be a success for the entire Wildcat family. This summer has been full of change and growth for many of our Wildcat family members. As we wish them the best in their new endeavors, we would like to welcome the new members of our family. I believe that each of you are a great addition to our school community.
As a member of the Carter Wildcat family, you play an important role in the growth and development of our students. I believe that the real strength of Carter High School lies in the collective talents of an exceptionally hard-working and dedicated faculty and staff. I have no doubt that if we commit together to providing individualized, hands-on, and interactive learning experiences for our students, we will have a remarkable school year.
Teamwork, collaboration, and communication is the key to our success. We must support each other, be on the same page and have high expectations for students, as we allow them to become the best version of themselves. Having dedicated faculty and staff members such as yourselves who will deliver high quality instruction will empower our students to develop intellectual, physically, socially, and emotionally.
