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 madsenb@vailschooldistrict.org, or Kelly Pinkerton at pinkertonk@vailschooldistrict.org. 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 teresaleataylor@gmail.com 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!
