CMS Random Acts of Kindness Challenge
In just a few short weeks, the nation will be celebrating National Random Acts of Kindness Week. Although we will be on February Break during this time, the CMS leadership class would like to encourage you all to find a way to make a difference in our community and in the lives of others. We know that many of you have already been doing things to help others. Some of you have taken on extra responsibilities at home. Others of you have helped a neighbor in need or have written a letter to someone you love who you cannot see right now. It is even possible that some of your families have found ways to help the community through donating to the food bank or serving those in need. There are so many ways that we can all make a difference in our community, and we would like to see and hear about the Random Acts of Kindness that our CMS students have been participating in over the past year. If you have not had the opportunity to participate in some sort of Random Act of Kindness, we would like to encourage you to think about how you can make a difference at home, in your neighborhood, or in our community.
The leadership class would like to highlight your stories about Random Acts of Kindness to share with the rest of the CMS community. As you participate in Random Acts of Kindness, please document them by taking pictures or videos of yourself performing the act of kindness. We then would like to encourage you to share your experience by filling out the Google Form found on your Chromebook Homepage. Please let us know who you are by providing us with your first and last name and grade level. Then give us a brief description of your experience of what you did and what it was like performing your Random Act of Kindness. Finally, if you have one, upload a picture or video of yourself performing the Random Act of Kindness.
We look forward to sharing all of the wonderful things our CMS students are doing to help their families, their neighbors, and our community. Please be sure to check out the Chromebook Homepage for more information about how to fill out the Google Form. We would love to have all of you participate, so we can highlight all of the incredible things you are doing to make our world a better place. GO COUGARS!

Independent Study PE
Dear Parents and CUSD employees: A Chicago colleague asked recently, “What is the name of your new school district?” “Carmel Unified,” I responded. “Unified? ” she inquired as though she had misheard. I quickly responded, “Yes, in Chicago we would call it a Unit District. It serves students in grades K-12. Actually we also have a preschool program here, so it’s actually pre-K to grade 12, but it’s about the same thing as a unit district.”
Our Mission Statement: Carmel Middle School has an academic priority based in the California State Content Standards. We will deliver these academics with creativity that stretches students toward higher level thinking skills. We are keenly interested in the whole child and will use relevant, age-appropriate, and hands-on methods that foster student appreciation for learning and the world around us. We offer a broad selection of electives and stress the importance of these electives as our students explore their personal interests. We are dedicated to providing a safe and positive learning environment where students are given opportunities to develop their abilities and confidence for life-long learning. Personal health and fitness are significant to our mission. We want students to become increasingly self-motivated to make positive, healthy contributions to our world.
