We are pleased that we are able to provide dedicated subject learning facilities for all grades, Pre-Kindergarten through 8th, to enhance their daily experience at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School.
The Science Center is used by grades K – 8. The center includes video microscopes, sinks, lab tables providing the ability to conduct both short and long term experiments.
Our gymnasium is located in the space originally occupied by the parish church from 1932 until the current church was completed in 1956. The gymnasium floor was not present then, but the choir loft was, and is today a part of our Upper Grade Library, which overlooks the gym.
The gym, also referred to as the Large Hall, is used for PE, after school sports program, student assemblies, dramatic performances and for many fund raising and community events and was renovated during the summer of 2014.
During the summer of 2015, we created two new Library spaces. Our Primary Library for grades TK - 2 is located downstairs and shares space with our TK. TK resides there in the mornings and the space is used as a Library after lunch. Upstairs, we have a brand new Upper Grade Library used by grades 3 - 8.
The securely gated playground was recently repaved and resurfaced with several new activity areas stnciled on its surface including baseball/kickball diamonds, a chess board, four-square play areas, a tetherball court and a shuffleboard court. Two play structures provide physical play for all grades and four basketball hoops are used for PE and our aspiring NBA players at recess and lunch.
