Principal's Message

Hello CDM Families & Students:

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year and the 30th anniversary of Carmel Del Mar School! 

The upcoming school year brings all of the excitement of new beginnings, new experiences and new opportunities to learn and grow. The enthusiasm and wonder of children reminds us that each child comes to school with tremendous hopefulness and anticipation for their very best year. Every teacher, principal, staff member and parent plays an important role in making this year a great one for each of our Dragons. 

The CDM Staff and I know how lucky we are to have so many wonderful students and families working alongside us and look forward to partnering with you this year. Carmel Del Mar School is committed to providing a nurturing and inspiring educational program for all of our students. We are excited to continue our work that is guided by our District Design 2022 plan and we continue to be eager to see the limitless possibilities of our efforts in providing your child(ren) with an extraordinary school experience. It is our goal that each student realizes his or her potential through our challenging academic program. In addition, we want each child to develop the skills that matter most - the ability to think and learn across discipliines, connect ideas, create new knowledge, engage in effective communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
Carmel Del Mar School, the "School With a Heart," believes in educating the whole child and including our community members in the educational process. We are proud of our collaborative relationship with our dynamic and involved parental community. So many wonderful aspects of our school rely on the continued support of our parents and CDM is thriving due to these strong relationships.  

Another year of learning, anticipation, wonder, joy and fun lies ahead. We are excited to have our students return to campus and look forward to all the goals we will achieve by working together this year. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and can't wait to see you on the CDM campus! 

With Great Dragon Pride,
Julie Lerner
