Students from the Fine Arts Departments are currently selling Go Play and Save coupon books! Money for the Go Play and Save books will be due at the end of the month. All proceeds will help with the Orchestra, Chorus, Art, Band and Drama departments at Carmel Middle. Thank you for your support.
OBX Field Trip
Our 8th grade students are gearing up for an awesome trip to the Outer Banks this sprint, however some of our families don't have the financial means to provide that experience for their children. We are seeking donations to enable us to provide scholarships to a few deserving students, so that they can experience the Outer Banks with their classmates this spring. The cost of the trip is $445, and the teachers, counselors, and administration will work together to find deserving students who will be able to receive these scholarships. If you have any questions about the OBX field trip in general, or about scholarships, please email Mr Mahoney at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Jared Thompson at email@example.com for more information.
