Brave the Shave!

MTE kids help fight childhood cancer!

A group of Mohawk Trails students will be collecting small donations to add to their St. Baldrick’s fundraising efforts. During student arrival on February 21, 22, and 23 these students will be in the hall collecting any donation your child would like to give. If they missed our Leukemia fundraiser, here is a great way to pitch in! Or they can pitch in even more! Here’s the best part of it all. The student that is able to collect the most in those 3 days, will have their HEAD SHAVED live during our morning broadcast on Friday February 24th. It’s just another example of how caring our students are, and the positive impact they can make in our world.

Carmel Clay Schools Now Accepting Teacher of the Year Nominations

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, at Nominations can be made by students, parents, other staff members and com-munity 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 can be made through the Carmel Education Foundation.



pow wow



For the 2017 - 2018 School Year, K - 3rd Grade students are re-quired by law to have two doses of Hepatitis A. There must be at least 6 months between doses or the immunization is considered non-compliant. That is why I am sending this information now. Kindergarten and 1st graders have had two doses or are in the process of getting this immunization series completed. Parents of 2nd graders and third graders need to contact their doctor to see if their child has had both doses and if not, please set the first appointment NOW so that dose # 2 is completed by the first day of the new school year. Do not wait to get this done, the timing will not meet the law requirements!!!! If you have a child in Grade 4 - 12th, check the flyer (page 4) carefully for any additional immunizations that will be required in order to start the 2017 - 2018 School Year. Feel free to call me if you have questions. Thank you, Mrs. Lukes Ann Lukes, R.N.
