Mohawk Trails is a School of Readers!

We are off to a great start in the MTE Library! All classes come to the library once a week as part of the specials rotation. Click here to see the schedule of classes. Please help your child remember to return library books each week. If your child wishes to keep a book for another week or two, you may keep the book at home. It is not necessary to send a book back to the library to renew it. For complete details on renewing items, as well as other library procedures, please click here. Contact Mrs. Rumschlag at with any questions or concerns. Happy Reading!



Turtles and Trojans

If you have kids at both MTE and Clay Middle School and/or you would like to receive communications from the Clay Middle PTO regarding PTO sponsored activities and school volunteer opportunities (both long and short term) please share your email at the following link:



Coming Soon

The first MTE restaurant fundraiser is at City BBQ on 10/12. This is an all day event and carryout orders will count too! A flyer that will need to be presented will be included in a future newsletter!



Media Center Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking forward to another busy year in the Mohawk Trails Library Media Center! Students will be coming in every day for book exchange, research, and class lessons. We could always use more smiling faces and helping hands. If you have some free time during the day, please consider spending it in the media center. Our parent volunteers do a variety of tasks. You may check items in or out, shelve books, assist students in locating books on the shelves, assist students with research, or create displays. We are very flexible as to how much time you would like to commit and what duties you would like to perform. To volunteer, please complete the form linked to this page: Contact Angela Frazier, Parent Volunteer Coordinator for more information at

Please note: All adult volunteers must have a background check on file with Carmel Clay Schools. You can find the link for a background check by logging in to myCCS:



Importance of Reading Food Labels

Each school year we have students with food allergies. A balance is the goal to help keep all of our students safe and healthy. It is important every time you purchase any food product for school that you read the entire food ingredient label. Manufacturers change products, equipment, and methods, all of which could be different from the last time you may have bought that item.

To read a label for a food allergy concern/issue, look for the following types of statements at the bottom of the ingredient list:

  • May contain _________ (name of allergen)
  • Processed on shared equipment with ___________ (name of allergen)
  • Manufactured in a plant with ________________ (name of allergen)
  • Contains _________________ (name of allergen)


Thank you, Mrs. Lukes
