    Carteret Middle School Families,


    It is our pleasure to welcome everyone for another great year at Carteret Middle School for in
    person instruction. We are excitedly preparing our classrooms so that your children can fill them
    with their energy and enthusiasm for learning. Given the difficulties over the last year and a half,
    it is our mission to build a Carteret Middle School community that focuses on accelerated
    learning while we assist every child to feel welcome, safe, connected and an integral part of our
    Carteret Middle School family as we strive for academic excellence and a focus on social and
    emotional growth.

    Carteret Middle School students will gain the skills academically, socially and emotionally to
    prepare themselves for High School. This year’s programs will focus on accelerated learning
    providing all students with individualized instruction to meet their academic needs. Our
    Restorative Justice approach to resolving student conflicts will enable students to reflect and
    repair fractured relationships through reconciliation. The Wingman program will train our students
    to become socially and emotionally prepared for life’s challenges. Our Rising Rambler initiative
    will enable students to build positive relationships with their peers.

    I look forward to spending time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning
    styles, and interests. I will celebrate their successes, encourage them to know that they are both
    valued and have a special place in our school community. My goal is to guide and support both
    our staff and students to reach their highest potential in a safe and nurturing environment.


    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any suggestions or concerns.  


    Thank you,

    Tara Romero
