Wanted: Buddy Families

We are pleased to offer a warm and welcoming approach for new families starting for the school year 2018/2019. We are looking for existing host families who are willing to participate in “The Civano Buddy Family Program,” which is designed to help new families become part of Civano Community School. New and existing families are paired up so the new family has someone they can go to when they have questions about Civano. The existing family is asked to contact the new family over the summer before school starts, “show them the ropes,” help introduce the family, and check in with them throughout the year to be sure their transition to Civano is as easy as possible.

If this sounds like something you’d be willing to help with, please fill out the Google form below. We will send out the pairings by the beginning of summer break.

Civano Art, Movie and Expo Night is NEXT Friday, May 18th at 6:00

The Art Showcase (K-8) and Upper School Expo Showcase will start at 6:00. The end of the year school movie will start at 7:00 in the lower school MPR. Bring chairs, blankets, mats, whatever you want to sit on and any snacks you want to munch on! See you there!

Last Cross Country Club This Friday, Water Day!

Hello Cross Country families!

Alas, the weather has become too hot to continue our 3pm running and playing adventures. We will have one last practice this coming Friday, May 11. We are planning on playing running games involving water and ice - so kids should dress to get wet.

Also please have the kids bring a water bottle so they can stay hydrated - sunscreen isn't a bad idea, either.

And finally, please plan on picking up your child at 4pm at the soccer field instead of at school at 3:45 as we will be celebrating with an eegee's toast after practice. Even if your child hasn't been participating in the club recently please consider having them come to this last event...we want to celebrate all of our runners!

Any questions? Let me know.

Thanks and have a great week!
