Mr. Jonathan Lyons

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year

After the events of the past year, we are so thrilled to be back in person. While there are certainly challenges ahead as we navigate this new world of COVID, we are hopeful that the year is more traditional in our approach. We look forward to games, plays and performances on our site that showcase the talents and passions of our students. We are excited to be back in the presence of our students as they re-engage with our school and the culture of Carmel High School.

We know that for many this past year will feel like a "lost year". But I would argue that while the year was certainly trying, it has given us the gift of appreciation for the little things. We will view sitting in class for a lecture huddling around a lab table with a little more gratitude for these simple acts. We will be indebted to each other for making it through and having each other on the other side. The work still to come will be more rewarding than it has ever been before because we will recognize the sacrifices we had to make to just get back to school.

I cannot wait to be on this journey with our students and parents. I look forward to rekindling partnerships and reforming bonds with our staff. I wait with great anticipation for our return to the field and the theater and I look forward to having you all join me in celebrating our amazing students.

Welcome to 2021!

Jonathan Lyons, Principal
