“Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm.” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge

What a wonderful first week it was! You could feel the excitement and anticipation among teachers, students, and parents alike as they welcomed new faces and greeted familiar ones.

We are very excited for this new year of wonder, learning, and growth! On the first day of school and every day at Carden Hall, we delight in the connections that will be made, the kindnesses that will be shown, the challenges that will be overcome, and the joyful enthusiasm that will be shared.

is just the best!” Mrs. Vandervort, Kindergarden
