Carver High School recently competed at the UIL One-Act Play Area and Regional Competitions. The judges named the theater troupes one-act play a Region 2 State Alternate.

Cheryl L. West wrote Before It Hits Home in 1989. It is one of the first plays to dramatize the African-American family dealing with AIDS. It symbolizes the life cycle — diagnosis and death — of the AIDS epidemic.

Once again, the magnet school students showed their acting chops at the competitions.

Over the past six years, Carver HS has advanced to regionals five times. The campus has received the State Alternate title three times.   Image  08  10  Accts Pay 2016  Aldine HS News Images  banner-images  bussey  buthune  carver  carver hs  carverhs2  Davis HS News Images  departments  District  Bamber Valley Elementay School  banners  bond2015  CTE  default  district news images  News  Awards  2015  2016  2017  01  02  03  04  BusinessCommunity  District  Sports  school-board  video  Drew Academy News Images  Eisenhower HS  Grantham News images  gray elem  Hambrick MS News Images  Hoffman Middle News Images  Houston Academy News Images  keeble  Kujawa Elementary News Images  lane skl  Library Services  MacArthur 9th News Images  McArthur HS News Images  mendel  Migration  news  Shotwell Middle News Images  sports  stehlik  Student Services  template-images  thompson  victory early  vines  worsham 	 Filename	Size Aldine-ISD-2017-Chopped-Challenge-1.jpg 138458 Aldine-ISD-2017-Chopped-Challenge-2 (1).jpg 123623 Aldine-ISD-2017-Chopped-Challenge-2.jpg 123623 Aldine-ISD-2017-Chopped-Challenge-4.jpg 154135 Aldine-ISD-2017-Scholastic-Art-and-Writing-Awards-Regional-Gold-Key-Winner-Fredy-Diaz-Alfaro-at-Aldine-Senior-High-School-1.jpg 38789 Aldine-ISD-Carver-High-School-UIL-Area-and-Regional-One-Act-Play-Before-It-Hits-Home-1.jpg 245520 Aldine-ISD-Carver-High-School-UIL-Area-and-Regional-One-Act-Play-Before-It-Hits-Home-2.jpg 152448 Aldine-ISD-Carver-High-School-UIL-Area-and-Regional-One-Act-Play-Before-It-Hits-Home-3.jpg 249220 Drew-Academy-BPA-Win-at-2017-State-Head-to-Nationals-1.jpg 148470 Eisenhower-HS-District-16-UIL-Speech-Team-1.jpg 136155 Eisenhower-HS-UIL-District-16-Academic-Meet-Numbers-Sense-Team-1.jpg 69555 HBA-2017-Photo-Contest-Carver-HS-Winner-Dakota-Barnett-1.jpg 94909 law_day_2017_logo.jpg 36494 scholastic-art-and-writing-awards-logo-1.jpg 27774 Decrease Drag Drag Increase Page 1 of 1.
