Changes for 2018/2019

In our constant effort to improve our school for all our students, staff and parents, and after a discussion with site council, we have decided to return to our previous classroom structure. Starting in the 18/19 school year, Kindergarten - 5th grade students will be on the Lower School campus, while 6th - 8th grade students will be at the Upper School campus. This means we will return to K/1 in the Youngers, 2/3 in the Middlers and 4/5 in the Olders. We will have two crews at the Upper School with a team of teachers to teach all subject areas 6th - 8th. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact BJ Madsen at, or Kelly Pinkerton at Thank you for your continued trust in Civano!

8th Grade Baby Photos Due THIS FRIDAY!!

Hello 8th grade parents,

In keeping with tradition, we will have a section of the yearbook for the 8th grade parents to include a baby picture of their 8th grader and a message to them. The message can be about how you have seen them grow and mature, a little story about them, a note to them for their future, etc.

There is limited room in the yearbook, so please keep your message to around 5 sentences or less.

Please email your photo and message to by FRIDAY, MARCH 9th.

If you are unable to email a photo, you can send in an original photo in an envelope marked "Yearbook-Teresa Taylor." Your photo will be returned.

Thank you for your help with this special part of the yearbook!
