All students in grades K-8 at Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary are on an extended day schedule. Regular dismissal time on Mondays – Thursdays is 4:00 pm. On Fridays, students are dismissed at 2:30 pm, and teachers participate in staff development workshops.
Extended Day increases student-teacher interaction and allows for more in-depth lessons and projects. The hope is that this extra time spent on core academics will assist in enhancing achievement, retention and interest in these subjects. Extended Day also replaces time that students would have been spent unsupervised after-school with constructive, safe learning.
