With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing us into remote learning this school year, we on the Carmel Yearbook Staff need your help! A yearbook, at its core, is a book of memories for the students of our school. We pride ourselves on the fact that the Carmel yearbook is a book for Carmel students, by Carmel students. It's a book full of photos of our students doing all the things they do at school. This year, we need help with the photos. So below, you'll find a list of topics and activities we'd like to include in our 2021 yearbook. If you have any photos of your Carmel students doing any of these things in your camera roll, please share them with us! If your student has any photos of them doing these things, please encourage them to share them with us as well.
Here's what we need you to do:
