Dear Carmel Community

As we begin the 2018-2019 school year we remind our community that the Carmel Central School District believes all students should have the opportunity to explore and pursue their passions.

To that end, over the last three years the District has engaged in strategically defining our purpose as an education institution and identifying pathways that best prepare students to succeed in this ever-changing world. The tools we consider essential are embodied in Carmel’s 6Cs—Critical Thinking, Citizenship, Compassion, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication. There are many examples of students practicing these skills in any given day, in every one of our schools. It is my hope that you will take time to see some of the great things that are happening in Carmel Schools by making use of the various channels through which we communicate. These include our curriculum nights, social media platforms, our website and our  school calendar .

The calendar contains information about the District, including our mission, vision and core values (p. 3). These serve as our roadmap for providing the very best for kids. We have also included more detail about Carmel’s 6Cs regarding our expectations for each and every Carmel graduate (p. 18). Additionally, the calendar has other important information, such as the newly added School Emergency Guide (p. 19).

Your continued support is greatly appreciated, as it is vital to the success of our students. On behalf of all the Carmel Central School District staff members, our best wishes for an exciting and productive 2018-2019 school year.

Sincerely,

Andy Irvin
Superintendent of Schools
