Quarter 3 week 5: This week was another one that was jam packed. Chocolate bar sales ended with prizes going out today.
2nd/3rd grades took a field trip to Sabino Canyon. We had a visit from Ben's Bells to "Bell" Mrs. Jeppson for her contributions to Carden students over the years and our community.
PTO met to talk about some upcoming events and projects.
If you are watching the big game over the weekend, I hope your team wins. But even if they don't it is a wonderful time to be with your family. Maybe practice your 7's multiplication facts.
