C.M.S. Empower Nepali Girls
The past eleven years, Carmel Middle School has continued a tradition of raising money to help send underprivileged girls to school in Nepal. This is in connection to the novel students read in 6th Grade Core, Homeless Bird, in which the main character, Koly is forced to marry at a very young age, like many girls in Nepal and India. One of the most powerful ways to help try to break the cycle of poverty is through education.
Over the past eleven years, we have raised a combined total of $75,008.34 to help support the cost of girls attending school in Nepal. Currently, it costs $170 to send a girl to school in Nepal for one school year. Though we realize this year is very difficult for many families, financially, if it is at all possible for you to donate, in honor of your middle school student(s), the girls in Nepal would sincerely appreciate whatever amount of donation you can offer. It is of no expectation that all donate, only those who are able. Please note it is tax deductible! If you are able to donate, please use the following link http://www.empowernepaligirls.org/.

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.
