Quarter 2 Week 4: We had a short week but it was certainly jam packed. We were able to showcase student's singing talents with the Veteran's Program on Wednesday. Having parents on campus and a stage full of performers reminded me of some of the great shows we have had over the years. I am excited to see a couple programs on the calendar.
Our student's traveling on the DC trip in the spring utilized the Wednesday half day to make blankets that they sold during the Fall Festival.
Friday opening was led by our K/1 students, it is always nice to see their dance moves.
Please enjoy your weekend. Next week we have the parent-teacher conferences, Elks Hoop Shoot and final prep for the 2nd/3rd grade performance of Let's Give Thanks.
Stay on the lookout for our new Carden of Tucson stickers, perfect for a water bottle, computer or car window.
Thank you,
Mr. Moore

For a fun family activity, trace and cut out your family's hands on different colored paper. Create a family turkey. You can write things you're thankful for on the fingers. We have so many things we can be thankful for. Take some time to talk with your family about what they are thankful for. I am grateful I get to be a part of the Carden team and help build our great community!
