    September / October Newsletter


    Dear Carwise Families,


    I want to begin by thanking you for all your support, and for the outstanding turnout at our sixth-grade Shark Camps, orientation and open house events.  Thank you for your participation on our PTSA, School Advisory Council, and for signing up to serve our students as volunteers, mentors and chaperones.

    I want to welcome and thank our new business partner, Helping Paws Animals Therapy.  They will be bringing two beautiful therapy dogs to CMS monthly to work with some of our students.

    We are proud of our 5 Star designation over the past 24 years and know this will continue for our 25th anniversary year as well!

    If you need assistance to access the student Portal System (our PCS’s system used to track your child’s grades, assignments, attendance and performance data), please contact your child’s grade level counselor.  We encourage all parents and family members to utilize this system to monitor and support your child as we partner to ensure your child is well prepared for the academic rigors and challenges in high school. 

    Carwise just received recognition for the third year in a row from the Career and Technical Adult Education (CTAE) administration for being the leading middle school in Pinellas County and one of the Florida State leaders in the number of students earning industry certifications, with 475 earned.  These are the same certifications earned by adults in CTAE schools across the state.

    Please continue to check our CMS website for activity and club information, as well as a calendar of upcoming events.  We work hard to keep you informed and up to date on all that is happening as well as our school accomplishments. 

    We also welcome any input you may have to further improve our school and the services we provide.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at 727-724-1442 X 2103, if you have any concerns, questions or recommendations.

    We look forward to this (our 25th year!) being the best year ever at CMS!


    Thank you,

    Robert Vicari
