Vail Pride Day VOLUNTEER Recognition...

Every year at Vail Pride day we get to celebrate our wonderful community of volunteers. We could not do it without you and we could not skip that opportunity this year. Our Vail Pride day Volunteer event will look different, but we still want to take the time to express our greatest appreciation for everything you do for our school, staff and students.

I am aware that some of you have not had the same opportunities to volunteer this year like you have in the past but this year has reinforced what an amazing supportive community we have! You all are an integral part of our community and success and even if volunteering has looked different you are appreciated and we want to take a moment to celebrate you!

Please see the attached flyer for information and a link to RSVP. ( please RSVP so we can plan and prepare a small token of our appreciation, if Civano's time slot does not work you can come anytime during the event)

I have also attached the Civano volunteer sign that you can place in your car window so we all know what school you are representing at the event.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions

Thank you

Arizona Tax Credits

Dear Civano Families & Friends,

We are writing to ask for your continued support with an Arizona Tax Credit contribution. These tax credit contributions are how we fund our Arts program at Civano!

We are asking each Civano family to contribute at least $400 (or $200 for families with individual filers) and to reach out to three other Arizona tax payers and ask them to contribute their public school tax credits to our school. Almost 80% of households in Arizona do NOT have school-age children. You likely have friends or relatives in this situation. Often taxpayers in those households don’t know about the tax credit program or they forget to make the contribution. We urgently need your help to educate these taxpayers and encourage them to give to Civano Community School.

About Public School Tax Credits: If you owe taxes to the state of Arizona, your contribution will offset what you owe dollar-for-dollar. If you give more than what you owe, you’ll get the extra back as a tax refund. It’s really an amazing opportunity! While none of us enjoy paying taxes, with tax credits you can know that at least some of your tax dollars go directly to your child’s school. Here’s how it works


  • Couples filing jointly may take a credit of up to $400 and individuals up to $200.

  • Contribute online or via check in the school office.

  • Giving online? Please select “Greatest Need” at the bottom of the page and when directed to choose a school, select “Civano Community School”.

  • Public school tax credit gifts for the 2020 tax year may be made right up to April 15, 2021.

How Civano Uses Tax Credits: Greatest-Needs tax credit contributions fund

  • Specials -- Art, Drama/Music

  • Artists-in-Residence programs (like previous year’s drumming and movement)

  • Outdoor education programs and field trips (Ironwood Tree Experience, 8th grade backpacking trip) and so much more.

Civano wouldn’t be the school we love without these important programs! Thank you for helping us rise to the challenge!


The Staff and Students of Civano Community School

P/S -- You can help by sharing the Tax Credit Contribution page with your AZ friends and family or by handing them a contribution form for mailing in or dropping off in the office. You can download the form HERE.
