  • Winter Food Drive

    The Spring Valley Food Bank needs help!  We are joining together as a community to help fight hunger by running a food drive to collect nonperishable foods. We ask that you send in one nonperishable food item with your child to their school next Tuesday.  A district truck will pick up all of the contributions and deliver them to soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the city.

    SVSD is looking for some helping hands. Everyday we are lucky to have a team of volunteers working in classes, at school buildings, and with our district team to give us the man power to deliver the best instruction to our students in the healthiest environment. Will you be part of our team? Becoming a volunteer is easy - submit a background check form, wait for approval and then contact your school or the district office for a job. Whether you're interested in helping once or every week, we have something for you.  Thank you!

Message from the Principal

We are looking forward to a successful second semester at George Washington Carver Elementary School! It is our mission to encourage students to keep an open mind as they continue their journey through learning. Everything is possible and everything should be questioned and examined. While we have some wonderful extra-curricular teams and clubs, our focus is on the sciences. We want our children to learn to approach every aspect of their lives with a scientific mind.  To that end, there will be several science-based field trips in the next several months. Attached is our field trip permission form.  GWC_Field Trip Permission Form If you have not already, please sign and return it to your child's teacher or the main office.

Thank you for joining us for the 2015-2016 school year! We look forward to your success.

Alfred P. Cusick
