CMS Picture Makeup / Retake Day
Thursday, December 10th from 3:00 - 5:30pm
- Students may come at any time, we are not putting out a set schedule.
- Masks must be worn at all times, except when the photographer asks you to remove it for your picture.
- Pictures will be taken in the teachers’ staff room, which is between the office and the cafeteria.
- We ask that you pull up to the front of school, following the posted signs, and stay in your car.
- Your student will be directed to exit the vehicle and enter the room to take their picture. You will stay in your car until your child has completed the picture taking process and returned to your vehicle.
- All pictures will be ordered online, so we will not be accepting money. Our photo company, GENERATIONS will email proofs to parent's email addresses in approximately 10 days from the photo date. At which time, photos will be available for purchase.
- We encourage everyone to get their picture taken so that we can add your school photo to the grade level portraits in our yearbook and give you your student ID card.
The Food Bank for Monterey County needs our help with their Holiday Canned Food Drive.
Each year, Carmel Middle School is proud to be a part of the Food Bank for Monterey County’s Holiday Canned Food Drive. Over the years, we have been able to collect and donate thousands of pounds of cans to the Food Bank. In fact, last year we collected nearly 3,000 cans and food items to help those in need during the holiday season. Since we are not on campus this year, we will not be able to participate in the Holiday Food Drive by collecting cans. However, we would still like to be able to donate to the Food Bank because of all they do to support our Monterey County residents in need.
According to the Food Bank, since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the demand for food has increased by 400%. The effects of COVID have stretched resources to the breaking point and magnified food insecurity to include families who had never needed the Food Bank’s support. The Food Bank is now serving 60,000 families every month. They are providing nutritious food through weekly drive-up distribution sites, which are the safest way to distribute food and protect public health. Since March, the Food Bank has created over fifty new countywide sites, including one for seniors only and school sites for students and their families. They urgently need support to continue serving our Monterey County neighbors in need.
Because the Food Bank for Monterey County is a nonprofit organization, they rely solely on donations from community donors, foundation grants, and local, state, and federal agencies. We would like to help with those donations. If you are able to this holiday season, we are asking you to consider donating to the Food Bank for Monterey County.
It is important to us that Carmel Middle School continues our tradition of supporting our local community. The CMS leadership class would like to thank you for your support and wish you a wonderful holiday season.
Follow the link below to contibute to the cause. If you have any questions regarding the donations, please reach out directly to the Food Bank for Monterey County.

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.
