    Carwise Middle Newsletter


    We have so much to celebrate as we move into the second half of our school year.

    Carwise Middle School was recognized by Pinellas County Schools for being a high achieving middle school based on mid year assessments and in addressing the needs of our most struggling students as well.  We are so fortunate to have outstanding teaching, guidance, and support staff who go above and beyond to help all students. 

    We continue to offer an Extended Learning Program which provides opportunities before and after school for all students in need of additional assistance.  We have 95 outstanding National Junior Honor Society students who offer tutoring on Monday mornings.  Also, they offer their services to help their fellow students with organizational skills during our Organization Station sessions held each quarter. 

    At the end of January, our county held some amazing musical and art productions.   We are very proud of the fact that we had more Carwise Middle School students selected to perform solos as part of the chorus, band, and orchestra for these productions at Ruth Eckerd Hall and the Mahaffey Theatre.  Many of these talented students will be performing in the All State productions representing our school and Pinellas County.

    This month we are celebrating our students who were selected to compete and perform in the Thespian Showcase, the county Science Fair and Science Olympiad events.  CMS has the most selected Science Fair entries at this regional competition than any public school in our region.  Thanks to our strong science department, we expect to continue our legacy of having students move on to compete at the state level.

    We recently selected our Carwise Middle School Pride Award winners.   These are eighth grade students who were selected for their top academic achievements in five subject areas.  Our award winners are as follows:

    • Math                 Diana Derylo
    • Science             Taylor Fox
    • Social Studies    Brendan Wells
    • Writing              Hannah Dunfee
    • World Language Allison Enriquez


    Wizard of Oz R.S.C. will be performed by our 7th and 8th grade Music Theater students on Friday, April 27th and Saturday, April 28th at 7:00pm. Tickets are available for purchase at On this website, choose the Events tab, choose the Wizard of Oz poster graphic, and choose the purchase tickets tab at the bottom of that page. Tickets can be printed at home or mailed to your home. There are two tickets available for purchase: General Admission -$10, and Dinner Theater (Reserved Seats)- $20.The doors for the catered Italian dinner will open at 5:15pm. The 8th grade Music Theater students will be serving dinner.

    We have so many reasons to be grateful!  I would like to thank our community, families and all those who support our students, staff, and the programs we have in place.  I recognize that it is all of us working together that creates this very successful school and ensures our students are fulfilled and prepared for the future.


    Thank You,

    Robert Vicari, Ed.S
