Enrollment for 2018/2019:

It's hard to believe, but we have already started thinking and planning for the 2018/2019 school year. With the lottery rapidly approaching in February, it's time to let us know your intentions regarding whether your child will be at Civano again next year and if you have any children entering kindergarten or interested in enrolling. Please fill out this google form no later than Friday, February 2nd, to let us know your plans and what our enrollment numbers will be.

Feed My Starving Children Field Trip 1st - 8th Grade, January 25th

Use this form to grant permission for your child(ren) in grades 1-8 to attend the FMSC field trip. On Jan. 25, 2018, students will travel by bus to Pantano Christian Church to pack meals for hungry children around the world. The bus will leave at about 8:45 and return to campus at about 12:30. Students will eat a pizza lunch at the church campus after packing meals. This is a non-denominational, secular service trip. Unfortunately, kindergarten students are not invited to attend the trip this year due to age restrictions.

Feed My Starving Children Fundraiser

We are raising funds for Feed My Starving Children this year by collecting quarters. Each student was given a tube of mini-M&M's. Here are the directions:

1. Eat the M&M's

2. Fill the tube with quarters

3. Return to the front office by January


Each tube will hold $14 worth of quarters which will make 63 meals!

Lunch Orders for February Due Monday 1/29, 8:00 AM

February Lunch Volunteers:

We are really struggling to get enough volunteers in the kitchen to allow chef Lita to make the yummy and nutritious homemade lunches that we would like for our kids. She cannot do it alone. If you, or anyone you know, can come in and help, we would truly appreciate it. Plus, you get a free lunch!

Raise Them Strong and Love and Logic:

We have begun using Brooks Gibbs “Raise Them Strong” program. We will be implementing lessons on resilience, the golden rule and bully-proofing yourself, school-wide and will focus on different principles each week over the next 7 weeks. This week’s principle is Resilience. Below is a link to the program.


Also, Pantano Christian Church is beginning a new Parenting with Love and Logic class a week from tomorrow. We highly recommend the class for any and all parents, or loved ones taking care of children. We use Love and Logic at Civano. We've included a link below to register if you're interested.
