Carson Valley Middle School

Skip to main content Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. David M. Burns  The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. Tom Bodett  If people did not do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done. Ludwig Wittgenstein

Day To Day Information

Student Handbook Rules

The student handbook (rules) and student planner (calendar) are two different documents this 2014-2015 school year. The student handbook is provided electronically from the CVMS webpage. Those households that wish a printed copy of the handbook-rules will be provided one. A letter going home on the first day of school will highlight the printed copy requests. Students are strongly encouraged to read and adhere to the school rules outlined in the student handbook. This 2013-2014 student handbook link is provided as a reference document as well as a method of duplication in the event you wish a printed copy. Students are expected to read and adhere to the rules outlined in the handbook. A specific grade level guidance period will occur during the first week of school. In that guidance period students will receive information related to the rules and successful school strategies. 

2014-2015 Student Planner:

Each student will be provided a planner to assist with the student's long and short range educational time management and planning.
