Dear Carden Families,


It is with saddened hearts that we report Coach Hendricks' resignation at the end of this quarter. Coach will be taking the position of PE teacher at another school beginning in January. We are grateful for his dedication and commitment he has given to our school and students throughout his years at Carden. If you have an opportunity to thank him, please do.


We are currently in the works of looking/hiring a new PE/Health Teacher.


Thank you,

Carden Administration
