Mr. Yusuf A. Muhammad, Jr.
Greetings Carver STEAM Family,
I am honored and excited to welcome you to our 2020-2021 School year!
On behalf of the entire STEAM Academy at Carver faculty and staff, I would like to express our well wishes to you and your family. We are fortunate to have a strong and caring faculty and staff, who have been working hard over the past few weeks to deliver virtual lessons for the first nine weeks of the school year. In order to help facilitate Virtual Learning, I am excited to announce that we will utilize the Otus All-In-One Learning Platform. You can learn more about our Virtual Learning Plan during our in-person orientation sessions, which will take place during the weeks of August 10 and August 17. Please read the letter on the hompage to learn more information abour our in-person orientation sessions.
As we transition into our 3rd year as a school under Purpose Built Schools of Atlanta, I am most proud of the culture of acadmic achievement that we established. I am also proud of the opportunities and experiences that we offer for our students. Our students participated in team building and leadership development over three days and two nights at Camp Highland. They also disected sharks and studied the environment and wildlife through the Georgia 4-H Environmental Education Program at Jekyll Island. Many of our students participate in our dual-enrollement program, facilitated by our award winning College and Career Counseling team. Our scholars also experience paid internships and gain valuable work based learning opportunities. Over the past two years, we created a school community where students come first, and we truly believe in our mission to cultivate student's skills and agency in pursuit of their unlimited potential.
We are certainlyliving in unprecedented times, but I am confident that we will face our challenges and overcome them together. And in order to do so, we must continue to work in partnership. Please be on the lookout for correspondence from our team members regarding orientation, open house, and opportunities to engage with our faculy and staff virtually. We will begin Virtual Instruction on Monday, August 24th. Again, our teacher will utilize the Otus learning platform. Teachers will also continue to utilize the Infinite Campus Parent Portal to maintain communication with parents and students.
Please join us on August 17th for the Carver STEAM Open House, where you will learn all about our instructional program offerings, and strategies to support and track your scholar’s learning through the Otus platform.

Finally, we truly look forward to returning to school in the near future. We are a school community centered on love and the belief that our students are inherently brilliant. We miss our scholars and our families and we look forward to seeing everyone soon in-person.

In Leadership and Service,
