Our 100th Day of School is Tuesday, January 11th. We are encouraging students and staff to come dressed to impress with their most creative way to showcase a 100! Whether it is creating a shirt of 100 gumballs or cotton balls, dressing as older generations (curlers in the hair, bow ties with suspenders), We want you to be CREATIVE!

SARSEF is offering virtual training for parents and students to support their invention/science fair project this spring. Mrs. Livingood, a School Board member and parent, will be attending, and would love to invite other Carden parents to do the same.

Here is the registration form:

As of right now, SARSEF is willing to accept 5 Carden students to participate in the fair this year as invention/ engineering submissions.

Dollar for Duds is the first Tuesday of each month. It is a Fundraiser for the Carden PTO. Students can wear appropriate "street" clothes to school that day. Proceeds are used for school improvements. To participate, the cost is $3 per day, per student. If you wish to pay for the entire year, it is $9. Please fill in the student name and dates that they will participating in throughout the remainder of the school year. Cash or checks (made payable to Carden PTO) are accepted for payment. Payment must be received prior to the dress down day to participate.

Quarter 3 Week 1: Just like that we are back into the swing of things. This week we have seen several activities returning to campus including readers theater, Native American reports, chess club and even some yoga. I do hope that everyone spent quality time with family and did the things that make you most happy over the break.
One thing that doesn't make us happy this time of year is tax preparation. The silver lining to this situation is utilizing a tax credit to benefit Carden of Tucson. you might be asking how? The office would be happy to provide you with basics and the form but please talk to your tax professional regarding specifics. (and tell family they can also donate to Carden of Tucson for the tax credit)
Let's make this last half of the year wonderful. Help your student stay on top of their schoolwork. Ask them open ended questions about their day. Set goals with rewards for achievements. Continue to communicate with teachers and administration. Come and enjoy the Friday openings when we start them back up. Please refer Carden of Tucson to families around you for enrollment for 2022-23. Thank you.
