OUR MISSION: TO MAKE EVERY STUDENT'S POTENTIAL A REALITY BY ENGAGING AND EMPOWERING OUR FAMILIES, EDUCATORS AND COMMUNITY TO ADVOCATE FOR ALL STUDENTS.
Final DC Trip Update
There was a final meeting for students on Wednesday, April 24th during ACE. They will receive chaperone names and bus numbers. Due to a problem with the online payment system, there are many families that have not made the final payment for DC. If you did not make final payment, that system should be updated so that you can now make final payment. If you are unsure, please let us know. The departure time will be at 6am on Thursday, May 2nd. Students need to be here at 5:30am. Now that there is no school on May 1st, students will have plenty of time to pack and be ready to go!
May 1st Optional Teacher Work Day
CMS Superintendent Clayton Wilcox has designated Wednesday, May 1st as an optional teacher workday for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Superintendent Wilcox has waived attendance requirements on May 1st for all students. No make-up day is needed or will be scheduled. These decisions were made in collaboration with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education.
Wilcox said “the powerful voices of educators change student lives every day in classrooms across our community. Together, their collective voice will change communities across our state on May 1st as they advocate for investments in public education that matter most to our students and their futures.”

Michelle Icard "Meetup" at Carmel
Just the words “middle school” can bring stress to the parents of young tweens, as they navigate this new social scene and developmental stage.
Michelle Icard can help! Michelle is a nationally-recognized parenting resource, author and speaker on all things middle school. She is the creator of the Athena’s Path and Hero’s Pursuit camps that Carmel will host this summer and Right in the Middle, a mother/daughter workshop.
On April 30th at 9:30am Carmel will host a one hour session with Michelle in the media center for parents to ask questions and discuss any concerns they might have about the best way to prepare their children for the middle school social scene.
This session is free of charge, but we ask that parents register if possible to give us an idea of how many to expect. Registration is not required for attendance. Feel free to bring any interested friends and neighbors. Hope to see you there!
