Quarter 3 Week 4: This week was full of National School Choice activities which was capped off with a school wide dance and yellow cupcakes. I love seeing everyone participate in these activities, check out the video on Facebook. Thank you again to Ms Nichols for setting us up for success.
In addition to the National School Choice activities around campus, we also had volcanoes erupting and nutritional presentations. Squad leaders got students thinking about what we love at Carden. Candy sales have been a great success so far and we are looking to order more boxes. Pizza lunch Friday again was very popular, plus it is my favorite lunch day as well!
