OUR MISSION: TO MAKE EVERY STUDENT'S POTENTIAL A REALITY BY ENGAGING AND EMPOWERING OUR FAMILIES, EDUCATORS AND COMMUNITY TO ADVOCATE FOR ALL STUDENTS.
We are getting closer to reaching the Invest for Success goal. To date 83% of the $40,000 goal has been collected. Please help us cross the finish line so we can fund the budget-approved projects and initiatives this school year.
Graffiti Wall Tag Day
Next Wednesday, February 26th, during lunch we will have a graffiti wall “tag” day. Any student whose family has made a donation to the Invest for Success Campaign can show their Cougar Pride by tagging the Graffiti Wall in the cafeteria. Make your donation using the link above or we will be accepting donations next Wednesday at lunch. Every gift, regardless of size, is appreciated!
Cougar Cares Snack Project
Our next Cougars Care project is SNACKS! We have a large number of 6th graders this year that are on free or reduced lunch - close to 200 kids. We would like to provide them with snacks to help them make it to their late lunchtime (1pm) without getting too hungry. The snacks will be distributed to teachers to hand out to kids during snack time on days they are especially needed.
Any individually wrapped snack is great. To contribute to our SNACK DRIVE, you can:

Congrats to all our spring athletes! Concessions will be OPEN for home baseball, soccer and track meets and ALL families of spring athletes will need to take one shift in concessions during the season. All proceeds benefit all our Carmel student athletes throughout the year and CMS does not give money for middle school sports so this is a big way we can fundraise for our sports programs.
If you haven't done so already, it's not too late to join the Carmel Athletic Booster Club! We provide funding for all athletic programs at Carmel. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LfI1vEXs4f3vwJZiIw2HfQSsQDBvXuxkTj5w3Ds2rL4/edit
