Empty Lot Committee

We are looking for a small committee of people to come together to help us decide what the school community would like to see in the empty lot just west of the Upper School. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please email BJ Madsen at madsenb@vailschooldistrict.org.

1 Volunteer Still Needed: Junior Achievement

We need just 1 more volunteer! Civano Community School is again partnering with Junior Achievement this year to provide the JA Days educational enrichment program to our students. This exciting educational event uses our parents as volunteers to lead fun, interactive sessions that connect the classroom to the world of work, by teaching our students about money, decision making, businesses and careers.


We are looking for two volunteers for each classroom for our JA Days on Wednesday, October 25th and Thursday, October 26th from 8:30am-12:00pm, each day. The program will be divided in to two half days. Volunteers are asked to commit to both dates.

Our volunteer orientation will be held at our school on Wednesday October 18th at 3:00pm. JA will supply all of the materials and training; our parent volunteers will share their time, experience and insight to help our students build their futures!

As a parent, you are already aware of the great impact an adult can have on the life of a child. We invite you to help make an impact on our community’s future by volunteering with us at our Civano Community School JA Days. You can learn more about the JA program by going to the link below.


Please contact BJ (madsenb@vailschooldistrict.org) if you are interested in volunteering with us at this exciting educational event.

October Kitchen Help

We are so fortunate to have a wonderful chef that makes delicious and healthy meals for our children. Our food quality and variety far surpasses any other school lunches around, but Chef Lita cannot do it alone. She needs help with the clean-up every day so that she can continue to provide our school with the lunches we've come to expect. Please continue to support our kitchen.

FREE SCREENING of "Dream Big":

Big image

City Center for Collaborative Learning Presents "Dream Big" at the Loft, 10/24, 7:00. DREAM BIG was shown in Tucson last February during Engineers Week by the Southern Arizona chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) but CITY Center for Collaborative Learning believes the film is too important not to be seen by a wider audience and so we are bringing DREAM BIG back to Tucson for a free screening at The Loft Cinema on Tuesday, October 24th at 7:00. This film was designed to be both visually engaging and inspiring to young people. It is a 'must see' for everyone in the family!
