Dear Carmen Arace Middle School Families:

As the proud principal of CAMS, I want to extend a warm welcome to you as we begin a new school year. We are a school community committed to providing a rigorous curriculum in nurturing a shared responsibility to deliver a 21st-century education.

Our goal is to provide a safe and affirming environment that closes the academic gap and prepares every student for college and meaningful careers.

I would like to share some exciting news about our school and key indicators that we are moving in the right direction:

o Highest PSAT gains in the district last year (+16 in Reading and +22 in Math between Fall and Spring)

 Double-digit gains in Reading on the 2018-2019 Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA)

o 95% attendance rate in 2018-2019

o Enrollment is up 17% and growing
 Advanced course offerings

 Partnerships - UConn Pre-engineering program supports math and science instruction

 Concert Band and Chorus received a Gold rating at the 2019 Fantastic Festivals

 The Percussion Ensemble received a Platinum rating and First Place at the 2019 Fantastic Festivals
 Mr. Marcus Jennings, 8th grade Social Studies teacher, was selected as Bloomfield’s Teacher of the Year

 More and more former students of Bloomfield Public Schools are returning to the district to help support our current students

I am honored to team with you in this great challenge of educating our young scholars!
