PTO Volunteer of the Month: Lauren Pan

For years, Lauren has worked in the heat of summer and the cold, dark of winter to update our marquee sign with all of the latest school/PTO information. She is efficient, enthusiastic, and an important part of our CE Family. Thank you for your service, Lauren! We appreciate you!!

Meet our Computer Lab Instructor : Mrs. Hamilton

Mrs. Hamilton recently relocated to Indianapolis with her husband and pups. She joins Carmel Elementary after teaching sixth grade social studies in South Carolina for 13 years. She served three years as her previous school's technology coordinate, so she's thrilled about all the creative possibilities in the CES Computer Lab. Check out these videos:

Last Chance: Have you signed up for the class email lists?

Wish you had other parents email addresses? We get it! The PTO would like to help facilitate email lists for the parents in each classroom to use and we need your help. The school district cannot distribute email addresses - if you would like for your email address to be shared with other families in your child's class, please follow the link below. You will also receive an invitation to join ClassTag to receive mobile notifications. ClassTag will replace Remind this year.

Custodian Appreciation Week: Help Us Show Appreciation

Our custodians at Carmel Elementary are the best. Mr. Jerry, Ms. Robin, Ms. Kelly and Mr. Bah keep the place sparkling clean each day after our kids go home. Help us show our appreciation for them the week of September 9th. Click the link below to find out how!
