Carden Sweatshirt Interest

We had some inquiries for Carden sweatshirts this year. We are taking a survey of families that would be interested in purchasing a sweatshirt and how many would be purchased. We would need a minimum of 25 sweatshirts to be purchased to make this happen. Sweatshirts would be gray hoodies at a cost of $25 per shirt. Please fill out the survey below to help us with the planning:

Quarter 2 Week 5: It was a fun week on the Carden campus this week. K/1 took a field trip to the zoo and created their own Thanksgiving Day Parade of animals. 2/3 gave us a great opening today and were diligently working on their Let's Give Thanks play for next week. The Elk's Lodge came to Carden to do the Hoop Shoot for grades 2-6 and they even donated an adjustable rim to our PE program. We even had a few former teachers swing by campus to see how we were doing.
Today in the pick up line I will be handing out Pima County Library card applications. If you can fill them out for your students I will get FREE library cards issued for your students. WHY are we doing this? Pima County Library is a fantastic source of knowledge for us all. Mostly known for books, but you can also check out movies and music. They have a lot of different programs including tutoring services, on-line and in January in-person. If you already have a library card please keep on reading and share some of the great books you have read. Please return applications to the office for processing as soon as you can.
Thank you,
Mr. Moore
