** IMPORTANT Information About Lunch **

We are SO EXCITED to be able to reopen our kitchen on Tuesday, Sept. 21!

Lunch menus went home in today's purple folders. Because our kitchen is small and our operations must be efficient, there are important steps to follow if you decide to order lunch from school.

Please read carefully.

1) Lunches MUST be ordered IN ADVANCE. There is no same-day lunch ordering option available.

2) The due date for this first round is WEDNESDAY, Sept. 15. Lunch orders and payment must be returned to school by Wednesday morning. The next menu, Nov. 1 -23, will be available October 22.

3) Milk, water, or uncaffeinated tea is available with each meal. If you wish for your child to only purchase milk, that can be ordered in advance with the menu.

4) Each day's menu includes information indicating if meals include gluten, dairy, poultry, nuts, or shellfish.

5) Retweet: Lunches MUST be ordered IN ADVANCE. There is no same-day lunch ordering option available.

If you have questions, please call the school office --879-1702.

Please help us to support the District's Diaper Drive efforts on behalf of the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona! We have a box for donations in the school office. We are collecting diapers until Sept. 17.

Our Student Council is sponsoring a movie party for the classroom that collects the most diapers! Please have your student take their donation to the classroom for accurate counting!

THANK YOU for helping our community!

Thank you to our awesome CPA for supporting our staff with these FUN National Park themed T-Shirts!

Tax Credits and Matching Donations

It is never too late or too early to make an Arizona Tax Credit contribution to Civano Community School. We use these generous funds to support our art and music/drama classes. Tax Credit Contributions also fund our field trips and special extracurricular opportunities.

You can make an Arizona Tax Credit contribution online HERE. Please designate "Greatest Need" as the intention of your contribution.

*Important Update*

Many companies offer matching donations for your donation to a school. Please check with your employer on the process for those matching gifts! There have been some changes to the process for Raytheon employees this year and we don't want to miss your kind gift to our students and school!
