Carmel Central School District Mission Statement
The parents, staff, students and community of the Carmel Central School District are committed in partnership to quality educational experiences in an environment that fosters mutual respect, values the uniqueness of the individual and challenges all students to become self-motivated, lifelong learners and contributing members of society.
Happy New Year! I hope that your holiday was pleasant, enjoyable, and restful. I expect that you are as excited as I am about the wonderful opportunities that lie ahead for us.
It is great to have the children back sharing their stories from over the break. It seems like we have quickly returned to our routines and learning is well under way. This month, our 4th graders will be visiting George Fisher Middle School for a music concert performed by the middle school students. This will give them a chance to observe some of the opportunities they may participate in when they begin 5th grade.
Please remind your child/children to dress appropriately for these cold days. In general, unless the weather is too cold, our students have outdoor recess. All students are required to go outside unless there is a medical note.
For school closings and early dismissals due to inclement weather, the Carmel Central School District will notify local radio stations to alert our community of these changes. In addition, our District website, CCSD app and our phone messaging system will also provide the same information. In the event we must dismiss early or cancel school prior to the students arriving, please have an emergency plan in effect. If there is a delayed opening, AM kindergarten will be cancelled. If we dismiss early, PM kindergarten will be cancelled.

Retired CCSD Kindergarten Teacher, Joan Newman, generously donated her time, talents plus all supplies in Mrs. Connors / Mrs. Burton's study of four letter words. Students brainstormed positive words to use to create beautiful word pillows.
Thank you, Mrs. Newman!
