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 warmer! We are getting closer to reaching our goal for this year’s PTSA Invest for Success Campaign! The PTSA sets a budget every year to provide necessary funding for programs and initiatives at Carmel that may not be covered in the general CMS school budgets. Every gift, regardless of size, is appreciated and makes an impact.
Thank you for considering a donation.
