Today, let us take time to remember and honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans. Happy Veterans Day!

Photos from Candeo Schools's post 11/10/2023

Yesterday, on both our North Scottsdale and Peoria campuses, our school community gathered with flags in hand to sing patriotic songs and recite poetry honoring our veterans. As our assemblies concluded we were reminded of the inspiring words of John F. Kennedy in his inaugural address, "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

At Candeo, our Core Knowledge curriculum emphasizes domain specific language allowing our students to communicate their understanding with precision and detail. Alongside their teacher, these 5th graders recently gave a presentation in which they were able to articulate and demonstrate the differences between a chemical change and a physical change.

Growing wisdom and virtue for a life well lived.

At Candeo, our mission drives us to ignite a spark, a desire in our students to grow both the intellectual and moral imagination through their schooling, not simply to complete a task or check a box, but to think well and deeply about important things, solve problems, and elevate their lives to be able to contribute to the communities they live and the places they serve now and in the future.

Who else remembers singing, "hot cross buns, hot cross buns, one a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns" as a child?

Time and again we see students experiencing joy-filled moments when learning at Candeo intersects with experiences "in the wild."

Recognition of this song is a sign of cultural literacy, an emphasis of the Core Knowledge curriculum at Candeo. To be culturally literate is to possess the basic information needed to thrive in the modern world. Through the purposeful teaching of this song, students learn history, beginning instrumentation as each plays it on his/her own recorder, and elements of music such as notes, rhythm, volume, and tempo.

Sign up for a campus tour, hosted weekly, at candeoschools.com/tours/ (http://candeoschools.com/tours/). Open Enrollment begins November 1!

A special thank you to Kristen Rodriguez, Director of School Engagement and Special Projects at the Core Knowledge Foundation, for her visit today. It was a joy and an honor to share our North Scottsdale campus.

And to our teachers, our Director of Curriculum & Instruction, Kimberley Marchisotto, expressed our feelings perfectly:

"I was so impressed with the instruction, quality of questioning, classroom management, and student engagement and participation. Kristen Rodriguez, from the Core Knowledge Foundation was equally impressed and complimentary of everything she saw this morning."

We love our school!
