"Top Dogs" Honored

Patrolman Evan Freiler of the Mount Carmel Borough Police Department and his K9 Officer Blek, stopped by to see the 4th graders of the Mount Carmel Area Elementary School. Patrolman Freiler explained Officer Blek’s role in the police department, while the K9 displayed the skills he’s been trained to do. The students pictured were recognized for their outstanding dedication to reading this school year. They have been named the TOP DOG readers in the 4th grade and unofficially became a part of “Officer Blek’s Brigade”. Collectively, the students have read over 2500 books since January.

Compulsory School Age

Important Change in Definition of “Compulsory School Age”

 Effective September 26, 2019, all children from the age of six (6) through the age of eighteen (18) must comply with compulsory school attendance requirements.  To meet these requirements, parents must ensure that their child between the ages of 6 and 18 is attending or participating in one of the following: a public elementary, middle, or high school; a public charter or cyber-charter school; a private licensed academic or private religious school; home tutoring by a certified teacher; or an approved program of home schooling.  Children may be excused from compulsory attendance for documented medical or other compelling reasons as outlined in District attendance policy and procedures.


Tornado Buddy Bag Program

The Mount Carmel Area School District continues to spearhead a fundraising campaign in an attempt to help fund the “Tornado Buddy Bag” program for the 2017-2018 school year. The program sends home bags of food, every weekend, to needy students and families.  Students qualify for free lunch and breakfast during school days, but often don’t have any or enough food for weekends.  Your generosity allows those students to have enough to eat throughout the weekend and be more prepared to be good learners every day of the week.  Find out more information and how you can help MCA students succeed.

Donations to help support the program can made made to the Mount Carmel Area Education Foundation.
