ANY Parent who will be driving on upcoming field trips MUST submit a copy of their Driver's License, Insurance Card and Declaration Page of their Insurance. We ask that all information be turned into the Office the day BEFORE the field trip. This will ensure that the Office has all needed information and not a scramble the day of the field trip. Any questions, contact the Office.


Lunch Order Forms are sent home with EACH student every week. Please do not write duplicate student names on order forms as EACH student has their own form. Second quarter lunch orders will be sent home this week. Orders are due by Friday, September 30th as this order will be for the first week back from Fall Break.


Thank you,

Carden PTO


Our Annual Constitution Program is just around the corner on Saturday, September 24th at 6:30 pm. The students are excited to present the songs and dances they have been preparing for this year's performance! This is a performance put on by ALL grade levels (K-8). Each class does their part. Please invite family, friends and anyone else! We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!

The Constitution Rehearsal will take place Saturday, September 24th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. You may drop your student(s) off at 9:00 am but must return by 12:00 pm (sharp) to pick your student(s) up. Students may wear whatever they would like for the rehearsal but we ask that they wear close-toed shoes during the practice and Program.

The Constitution Program will be held that night at 6:30 pm. Students need to be there about 15 minutes prior to make sure they get settled with their squads. Students in grades K - 5 are asked to wear navy blue bottoms with a red or white polo. The Middle School students have been asked to wear navy blue bottoms with white polo. Again, students are to wear close-toed shoes.


Classroom Parent Volunteers are needed! Please fill out this FORM if you would be interested! Thank you for all of your help and support!


Students who will be absent due to an illness or for any other matter, parents MUST call into the Office to report the absence before 9:00 am. To report an absence, call 520.293.6661.

Thank you for your help!
