We want to THANK our students and Mr. Claridge for putting together such a memorable performance to honor our Veteran's. THANK YOU to all who were in attendance. We are grateful and thankful for our heroes who have served and are serving at this time.


Picture retakes will be held on Thursday, December 1st in the MPR. This is the time for students who were absent for the original picture day or if you would like to have their original pictures redone. If you are choosing to have the pictures redone, the original picture packet (all pictures you ordered) need to be returned to school on December 1st.

Any questions, contact Mrs. Jeppson at bjeppson@cardenoftucson.org or 520.293.6661.


To help keep our car pool line running safely and efficiently, please do NOT go to the classroom to pick your students up. We need to ensure that all students are being accounted for and we are not able to do so when parents enter classrooms without checking into the Office or with Ms. Chilton. Also, please do not park in the "Do Not Park" areas. That creates congestion and is not safe.

If you have any questions, contact the Office.


Thursday, November 17th, Students and Faculty may wear their favorite sports team jersey or shirt!
