Have a safe and wonderful Fall Break. Time is passing quickly!

School resumes on Monday, October 16th.


Picture Day is Thursday, October 19th. Picture information will be sent home on Monday with EACH student. Please keep an eye out for the packet. Students may come dressed in whatever they are planning to wear for pictures but MUST bring their school uniform to change into after their picture has been taken. ALL students will have their picture taken during Picture Day. If you have any questions, contact the Office.


Thank you to everyone who attended the Constitution Program. It was a spectacular night and we couldn't have done it without our students, staff and families!


Fine Arts Come to Carden

            By Caleb Harris


   For the past ten years, Mrs. Scovil from the Tucson Museum of Art has been visiting Carden’s 5th grade class to teach fine arts. She comes once a month for 2 hours on Fridays. She teaches the students about famous artists throughout history. She also teaches how to paint in the artist’s styles. For example, Picasso’s Cubism or Monet’s Impressionism.


   Miss Stoner found out about this program through a flyer sent by the Tucson Museum of Art. She would like her students to learn about different kinds of art, such as fine art, theater and music. She hopes that they appreciate art once they have left her class. I hope your child enjoys it as much as I did when I was in Miss Stoner’s class!


Pennies for Pasta kicks off on Monday, October 16th! Students will receive a money box to keep all their change that is collected. All proceeds support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The event will run from October 16th thru October 27th. The class that raises the most money will receive a pasta party!

Checks are to be made out to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
