Our Annual Fall Carnival is TONIGHT from 4 pm to 7 pm. 


Tickets and Wristbands can still be purchased at the front gate during the event. Cash, check (made payable to Carden PTO) and card will be accepted.

We would like to thank Coach Zagrodzki for her time at Carden. She has been an incredible addition to the Carden family over the past year and will be truly missed. Coach Z has been given a promotion at the YMCA and will be leaving us as of Monday. She is still planning to come to school events to keep in touch with families.


Mr. Leyva has graciously accepted the position of the part time PE teacher and playground monitor.


Thank you,

Carden Administration
