Principal's Message

  • Principal Giles

    Welcome to the GW Carver Elementary School, home of the Peanuts! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school community, including our amazing students, our loving staff, our supporting families  and partners, and our exciting programs. 

    As your principal, I am honored to lead our school community to help provide an exciting and rigorous educational experience for our students. Our team is committed to ensuring that our students receive the best possible support to learn and grow. 

    My vision for Carver ES is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

    Our skilled and devoted staff are committed to making a difference. They want to have a positive impact on your child and above all, they want to provide them with an engaging and joyful learning experience that supports them in becoming independent learners.  Our teachers are always working to get better at what they do through personal self-development and participation in a wide variety of professional development activities. They model life-long learning for our students and never settle for anything less than their best! Thank you  to our incredible staff for their amazing professionalism and incredible energy and their commitment to our students.

    Great schools always come back to the relationship between the child and the teacher. Be sure and find ways to engage yourself in school life – your child will notice and respond. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. May we all be present for the joy of learning, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the comfort that comes from belonging to a community. 

    To my students, staff, families, and community; I am so honored to be your servant leader. Thank you for the opportunity to work with such an amazing school community. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.

    If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me via at tgiles2@rvaschools.net or 804.780.6247.

  • Do you have children who either live in or frequently visit your home? If so, it’s important for you to know that Lead paint is dangerous, unhealthy, and can severely harm the brain and nervous system development of children under 6 years old. Lead paint is still found in many of the City’s older Northside Homes.

    The Richmond Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program is a partnership between the City of Richmond’s Department of Housing and Community Development and the non-profit project:HOMES that provides federal funds for free testing and repairs for homes with at-risk children or pregnant women. Homes that children visit for at least 6 hours a week can also qualify.

    View the letter linked below for more information about how to apply for the program:

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - October 19, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm thrilled to recognize National School Bus Safety Week and School Bus Transportation Employees Appreciation Day (10/21) in honor of our amazing transportation team! We've seen these unsung heroes step up in so many ways to make sure our students have access to healthy meals throughout the pandemic. They continue to go above and beyond the call of duty (remember the story about Ms. Brown, who personally delivers food to an RPS grandmother?) and we are truly grateful for their dedication. That's why the Board approved a pay raise last spring to make our bus operators the highest compensated in the region!

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, To warm your heart on this rainy Friday, check out how the incredible team at MLK Middle School hasn't let the pandemic stop them from celebrating their September Students of the Month! To honor the five young people who most exemplified MLK's core values – being respectful, responsible, and kind – the MLK team brought certificates and treat baskets to the students' homes (see picture below). Congratulations! We're so proud of you! Click above to read more!
