It is my pleasure to serve as the principal at Mount Carmel Area Elementary. It is with great honor and pride that I join our dedicated faculty, staff, parents and students on this journey. Our mission is to encourage all students to develop self-confidence and the ability to work independently and cooperatively. Our shared goal is to create a common vision throughout our school community through which high quality classroom instruction nourishes our students and maximizes their growth and development. Communication between the Mount Carmel Area Elementary and your home is essential for a successful school year for our children. Please make efforts to know your child’s teacher and their classroom expectations. Together, we can make a difference.
