We greatly appreciate the help and support from our Carden families and community for spending their Saturday morning with us moving wood chips. It was an incredible event and couldn't have been done without you!

If you are able to come join in the fun or give a donation for the golf fundraiser, please do! It is a wonderful family time event with 3 hours of golf, food and raffle prizes. Contact the office with any questions!

Q4 Week 3: I think I mentioned that this quarter was going to fly by and it certainly is. We are in the middle of planning a water day, graduation dinner, dance festival and so much more. Please talk to your students about what activities are coming up because we are planning a ton of fun. If you would like to volunteer at any of the events please talk to us in the office.

I am not going to ruin the ending for you but this week we heard Casey at the Bat by Ernest Lawrence Thayer performed by the 4th and 5th graders. 7th/8th went on a research trip to the public library. We also had surveys by students, dancing is in full swing during music.

Thanks again for all the help with the wood chip project, students have enjoyed the playground this week.

Relationships are Royal
by Ms. Nichols

I have been inspired by our Carden of Tucson Alumni, Families, and Friends. The relationships among all of us are true treasures. We are so fortunate to have one another. So let’s make memories!

By definition, relationships are the way in which two or more people, concepts, or objects are connected.

Carden offers many opportunities to make memories. Nurture the people you connect with at Carden of Tucson, we are not disposable. Today, Mrs. Brown, an Alumni parent, came in to drop off materials for another teacher. I simply spent 5 minutes in conversation with her, which made a life long memory. Sure we all have busy lives, kiddo’s, chores, and careers. Know it is a valuable choice to stay connected with the people you have entrusted your child/children to grow with. Actually, we care about your family, as well as the student.

Alumni students often just randomly stop by to say hello. Some may feel it is an interruption, most feel the joy of honoring the connection, to smile and share a moment. We have several upcoming events that you can participate in to have fun, laugh, and create memories. Abraham Lincoln said, “ It’s not the years in your life, it’s the life in your years.”

Hope to see you at the Golf Tournament, the Spaghetti Dinner & Talent Show, Dance Festival, and every Friday Morning Opening.
Relationships are Royal, Carden Connections are Gems!

We would like to stay in touch with our Carden of Tucson Community. Please take a moment to remind our Alumni to give a call, come visit, or shoot an email emoore@cardenoftucson.org. We care about you!
