Still Wanted: Buddy Families

So far, we only have 3 host 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.

8th Grade Promotion, May 24th at 9:00 AM

8th grade promotion will be in the MPR on Thursday, May 24th at 9:00. 8th grade parents and family are invited to join us to say farewell to our class of 2018 8th grade students. Some of those students have been a part of the Civano family since kindergarten, some have been with us only a short time, but they will all be missed by our community.

It has become tradition to end our school year with a family breakfast and talent show. Please join us on Friday, May 25th at 8:00 for our breakfast of fruit, juice, coffee, bagels, and cream cheese. At about 9:00 we will start our year end talent show, which you won’t want to miss! The whole thing wraps up around 10:30-11:00. Students are welcome to head home with families after the talent show, or stay at school until 12, as this last day is a 1/2 day.
