Visits Carden of Tucson


On Thursday and Friday of this week Mr. Joel Reed of the Carden Foundation was on the Carden of Tucson campus to conduct demonstration for each classroom teacher using his or her students.  

It was a wonderful experience watching your children interact with Mr. Reed.  At the conclusion of the demonstrations Mr. Reed told the administration that he loves to come to Carden of Tucson because the children are so well prepared and respectful.  Thank you for sharing your children with us.

Mae Carden thought of the week:

"Family ties need to be strengthened, not loosened. These ties do not bind. They offer a common interest which endears each member to all the members of the family."

-Mae Carden

If you need forms please contact Mrs. O'Leary or the office.

Please use the car pool line when picking up or dropping off students.  If you need to go to office, park in the parking lot. 


If your student is absent, please call the office by 9:30AM. 

Children are asked to wear white or red tops and blue bottoms on Fridays.
