1/2 Day Friday and Lower School and Upper School Talent Shows:

This Friday is a 1/2 day. All students will be dismissed at 12. We will also have a talent show on each side of the street. The K-4 talent show starts at 9:00. Please check with your child if they will be doing an act and if they need any special props or music.

Painting the Loft:

Hi, I'm Sofia and I'm in 5th grade at the Upper School. Me and my friends Annie (6th) and Daniela (5th) are doing a purpose project for our community. We have decided to focus on painting the loft at the Lower School. All parents know that paint is very expensive, so we are asking you to please donate white, gray and black paint. Please only donate paint from a can, not spray paint. Also, it would be very helpful if you would please donate paint brushes, primer, paint tape, caution tape, paint rollers, cooking tins and sandpaper. If you bring these to the school you can bring them to the office on the Lower School side and tell Gianni they're for "purpose project loft." Thank you.

CivanoArts 17/18 Reminder

2017 is almost over! If you haven't made a contribution or need to catch up, now is the time to do it so that your gift can be deducted from your 2017 taxes. You can submit your donation payable to Civano Community School with Community Donation Fund clearly marked in the memo. Questions? Stephanie Mitchell, thundermitchell@gmail.com.

Socks and Underwear Drive for Aviva Children's Services

We are proud to be collecting socks and underwear for the Aviva Children's Services foundation again this year. The Aviva Foundation supports kids going into the foster care system. Many of these children leave their homes with no more than a plastic garbage bag of their possessions. Please consider picking up an extra pack of socks or underwear during your holiday shopping. They especially need supplies for older kids and teenagers.

Does anything look familiar? Come by the lost and found to see if anything belongs to your child. All items will be donated during Winter Break. Thank You

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!

Upper School STEM Challenges: Supplies Needed
