Student Leadership Luncheon: Etiquette and Guest Speakers

About two dozen hand selected future leaders were given the opportunity to dine at PepperPot Jamaican Cuisine and hear from four current pillars of the community about their experience and advice on leadership. Our guest speakers included the owner of PepperPot, Dwight; the head of the Wauwatosa health department, Laura Stephens; retired judge and head of the Marquette law school Derek Mosley, senior director of university communications for Marquette, Monica MacKay, and our district 6 Alderperson, Milele Coggs. Dwight shared his personal history and the history of the restaurant and a little info about Jamaican food. Rachel Marken, our HBHA vice president taught a lesson on professional dining etiquette and all the students had a chance to ask questions of our honored guests while they shared a delicious meal. Many thanks to everyone who took time to make this day happen!

Local business donors helped make teacher appreciation lunch a success!

This is our second year putting on a staff appreciation lunch for all the hard-working folks at Carver Academy. This year’s sponsors donated drinks, a gift basket, and tons of food to help show their love for educators. We hope to continue this opportunity again next year!

In her words: My Project
As the end of the school year approaches, I have begun to reflect on the strong relationships I have built with some of my students and their families. One of my responsibilities as the school social worker in our building is to support students who are in need of a behavior intervention.
At least 15% of our student population this school year were in need and referred for a behavior intervention.
As I reflect on my work this school year, I am truly grateful for the trust our families have put in me when it comes to working with their children and encouraging a positive behavior change through PBIS framework. This school year has helped me grow professionally and personally as an individual. It would mean a lot to me if I could thank some of my families that I worked so closely with this school year with a gift basket filled with items they can utilize this summer to have fun as a family, practice and learn new skills, and boost their health and wellness this upcoming summer. Our families deserve so much more than what they have, and I would really enjoy having the opportunity to give them some tools they can use as a family to learn and grow together. My scholars have worked so hard and put forth the needed effort in to make progress in their Tier 2 and Tier 3 behavior interventions and we would not have seen as much success if it wasn’t for their supportive families. My goal and vision for these resources is to provide scholars and their families with an award for their hard work and success this school year and to provide them with the needed tools to continue their positive behaviors this summer!
