Second & Third Grade Students Participate in Ellis Island Immigration Simulation

Mrs. Muse and Mrs. Marciano’s 2/3 CC classes participated in a simulation of what immigrants experienced on Ellis Island. More than 12 million immigrants made their first stop in America at the Ellis Island Immigration Station between 1892 and 1954.

Each student had an identity as someone coming through Ellis Island in the early 1900s. The characters were researched and created in class.

The following stations were a part of the simulation.

Station #1: Boat | Station #2: Baggage | Station #3: Medical Exam in the Great Hall | Station #4: Detainment | Station #5: Legal Inspection | Station #6: Literacy Check | Station #7: Passport Check | Station #8: America

Carmel Clay Schools Now Accepting Teacher of the Year Nominations for 2017

Nominations can be made by students, parents, other staff members and community members and are being accepted until March 12.

Woodbrook's Mrs. Janet Vahle was awarded 2016 CCS Teacher of the Year.

Each year, the Indiana Department of Education conducts an Indiana Teacher of the Year program to recognize outstanding classroom teachers from across the state. Carmel Clay Schools is invited to share in this special recognition program by honoring and nominating one teacher to be a representative at the state level of the program.

Nominations are now being accepted for the CCS Stephen A. Backer Teacher of the Year award until midnight on March 12, 2017.

Nominations can be made by students, parents, other staff members and community members. A selection committee will review the nominations and select the winner. The CCS Stephen A. Backer Teacher of the Year will then compete against teachers from across the state to represent Indiana in the National Teacher of the Year competition.

The Carmel Clay Schools Teacher of the Year award is endowed by the Stephen A. Backer Memorial. Throughout his life, Backer was an advocate and supporter of Carmel Clay Schools. He served on the Carmel Clay School Board of Trustees from 1994 to 1998 and from 2006 until his passing in March 2009. Stephen held the position of School Board President for five of those years. The Stephen A. Backer Memorial was started shortly after his passing and continues to receive donations. Donations in support of the Stephen A. Backer Teacher of the Year award can be made through the Carmel Education Foundation.
