MCAE Donates to Local Food Panty

This year the Mt. Carmel Area Elementary Student Council had a competition called Turkey Wars to help out their community. During this time, homerooms collected donations for one week. The two highest homerooms, Mrs. Geist – 6th grade and Mrs. Kimmel – 2nd grade will receive a pizza party. In the end, they were very pleased to be able to donate $1600 to the Mt. Carmel Area Ministerium Food Pantry.

Red Cross Presents The Pillowcase Project

Two representatives from the local American Red Cross visited the 3rd and 4th Grade classes at Mount Carmel Area to present their Pillowcase Project.  Students learned tips on how to best be prepared in an emergency including inclement weather and fires.  Students received a Preparedness Workbook and a Pillowcase.  The pillowcase comes from a story about how college students put their necessary items during an emergency into their pillowcases to carry to the nearest shelter.

MCAE Honors Our Veterans

MCAE Veteran’s Day Video Salute

Not just today, but every day. Thank you for your courage, dedication, and hard work.

Through the feel of war they brave this day
How proud they stand, their unselfish way

Our soldiers bear what we cannot see
They assure our right to live life free

Each trained will face an unknown fate
Our support they need, don’t hesitate

Just imagine how this land would be
Without their courage – catastrophe

All the liberties we have grown to know
Would not exist, this life would go

Find a thankfulness within your mind
Speak gratitude for our bravest kind

Have the willingness to show you care
For fallen heroes, hold back no tear

Reach out to God with his guiding light
For our troops do pray, both day and night

America raise your flags to wave
For we truly are ‘home of the brave’

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.
