OUR MISSION: TO MAKE EVERY STUDENT'S POTENTIAL A REALITY BY ENGAGING AND EMPOWERING OUR FAMILIES, EDUCATORS AND COMMUNITY TO ADVOCATE FOR ALL STUDENTS.
Invest for Success
Over the next few months, our kids will be headed back to school. Every year the PTSA helps purchase items for the teachers, students and classrooms, but this year the items needed may be a little different as teachers attempt to teach in person and remotely at the same time. Possible needs are bluetooth headsets, document cameras, and additional cleaning supplies. Please consider making a donation to the Invest For Success campaign, so we can help support our school and make the transition back successful.

School Updates & Information
Virtual Curriculum Night - October 8th: bit.ly/2020VCN
Opening Message from Dr Thompson:
On October 8th, Carmel hosted its annual Curriculum Night virtually. Our PTSA began our Curriculum Night with a live presentation regarding the proposed 2020-2021 budget. Following the PTSA's announcements, Dr Thompson gave a brief reflection on the first quarter of this school year and how Carmel is preparing for a shift into hybrid instruction under Plan B in late November.
All parents may view the virtual Curriculum Night by visiting bit.ly/2020VCN. You can walk through your child's schedule using this link and watch teacher videos. Teachers will elaborate on content covered during quarter 1 and what you and your child can expect in their class in the near future. They will also share an overview of the units of study that your child will be engaged with during the 2020-2021 school year. We hope that you take time to watch these teacher created messages with your child to better understand curriculum delivery at Carmel Middle School! As always, we are so appreciative of our school community and the support we receive.
