Save Around Coupon Books have been handed out to ALL families! This is a great opportunity to fundraise for the new building. We are getting closer to meeting our goal and couldn't be more excited!

Sell as many as possible and keep up the incredible work!



Books/Orders/Money are due Monday, August 29.


Contact the Carden PTO with any questions at cardenpto@cardenoftucson.org


It is coming to that time of year for our Constitution Program on September 24, 2016. We would like to have a count of who will be in attendance and who will not be in attendance for the Rehearsal and/or Program. Please fill out the form being sent home with each student and return to the office by September 2, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact the office ASAP. Thank you for your help!


Any student that is absent, parents for all grade levels and/or middle school students need to E-MAIL their teachers for homework. Teachers are more than willing to send homework home with proper notification. Students have as many days as they are absent plus one extra day to complete their missing assignments. Any questions/concerns you may have, contact the Office.
