January is School Safety Month!


As always, our number one priority at Carden is the emotional and physical well being of our students. School safety continues to be a continuous area of improvement for us. One area we will be addressing in the next month is the practice and understanding of the school lock-down procedure. We will be practicing a lock-down drill on Friday, January 29th in the morning.  Please discuss the procedure with your students prior to this date so that they understand this is only a drill. In the event that we have a live lock-down, emergency text messages, emails, and facebook updates will be posted so that we can communicate with you.


If you have questions, contact either Mrs. Jeppson or Mrs. Livingood.


Mae Carden thought of the week:

 "A person is considered charming when he is a good listener and when he shows sincere interest in the interests of others." 

-Mae Carden

Just a Few Friendly Reminders:

Every child must be registered for the Enrichment Program (even if you never use it) so that if an emergency should arise and you are not able to arrive by 3:30 PM or if you have to drop your children off before 8 AM they will have a place to go. 

If you need forms please contact Ms. Chilton or the office.


Please use the car pool line when picking up or dropping off students.  If you need to go to office, park in the parking lot. 


If your student is absent, please call the office by 9:30AM. 


Visitors on Campus!

Parents, friends, family, and visitors, if you are coming on campus, please make sure you sign in at the office! Do not go to the classroom without checking in at the office.

This will help keep classroom disruptions to a minimum and insure campus safety!

Thank you for your cooperation!
