Dear Carden of Tucson Families,

It’s hard to believe that we are wrapping up our 1st quarter of school. What a joy it is to see all of the learning and growing for everyone at Carden of Tucson. This week, 4th and 5th grade visited the Van Gogh Experience in Oro Valley and we had Northwest Fire on campus with a grand finale visit from a Fire Truck, hoses, sirens and all the fun! I am so thankful for our teachers and parents that make these opportunities possible for our students!

I am also thrilled to announce that Carden of Tucson received a $5,000.00 grant from Tucson REALTORS® Charitable Foundation to support and grow the Carden Invention Convention. This year's Invention Convention will be held on Thursday, March 7th at the University of Arizona. In January, we will be holding a parent meeting to talk more about the Invention Convention and ways you can support your inventor at home!

When we return to school on Monday, October 2nd, we will be in the home stretch before Fall Break. Kindergarten and 1st grade will be presenting our Friday Morning Opening on Friday, October 6th. I hope everyone is looking forward to this time of rest and will return to school on Monday, October 16th excited and hopeful for all that 2nd quarter will hold!
