K- 8 Field Trip: School Day at McKale Center: December 14th

We are gearing up for our field trip to the UA McKale Center to watch the women’s basketball team take on New Mexico State. Please fill out the form below. We are encouraging students to wear their UA Wildcat apparel if they own some, or their Civano t-shirt.


We have little time for lunch, so please pack something easy for them (that can stay on the bus while we watch the game) to eat directly after the game. The concession stand will be open, so if they want something there, please send some extra cash for them. Also, there are very strict rules about what we can bring in to the stadium. Please see the new clear bag policy at: http://www.arizonawildcats.com/news/2016/1/12/210630606.aspx


We are in desperate need of chaperones for this trip (lots of kids to keep track of), so if you're available, please indicate so on the google form.

Feed My Starving Children Fundraiser

We are raising funds for Feed My Starving Children this year by collecting quarters. Each student was given a tube of mini-M&M's. Here are the directions:

1. Eat the M&M's

2. Fill the tube with quarters

3. Return to the front office by January


Each tube will hold $14 worth of quarters which will make 63 meals!
