PTO ELECTION Wednesday May 3rd

Hello Candeo Families,

On Wednesday MAY 3rd you’re invited to attend the PTO General Meeting 10:30 to 11:30 in the STEM LAB.

This is last PTO meeting, with the current PTO Board. At this meeting, the PTO will be holding elections for new PTO Board Members. 

We are grateful to Hollie Noreuil. She will be returning for one more year. Also, Amy Duffy, Becky Profit and Katie Stguritan have accepted nominations to be on the PTO Board. Woohoo! 

There’s Still Room For You!

There are still at least two open positions on the PTO Board and we encourage you to join if you have an interest. Any Candeo parent, grand parent or friend of Candeo is eligible and encouraged. If you have questions or if you have an interest in joining the PTO Board, please email

No experience necessary. We just need your enthusiasm.


Use Your AZ Tax Credit and Support Candeo

DID YOU KNOW?  Arizona tax law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers a TAX CREDIT of up to $400 per household if they contribute to extracurricular activities in public schools like CANDEO. 

The $400 maximum state credit is available for taxpayers who are married and filing jointly.  For single taxpayers or heads of household, the state tax credit cannot exceed $200.  This means that most taxpayers are eligible to assist a public school at no cost, since the entire amount of the donation is credited back in their Arizona state taxes.

To participate, download a Candeo tax credit form HERE

Feel free to contact Candeo directly and ask more questions about this program.  They will be happy to share with you more details about how this program benefits schools.  Click here to email CANDEO for more information.
All contributions are deposited into a central fund which supports extracurricular activities at Candeo Peoria. Generally, any activities that supplement the educational program of the school are considered to be extracurricular activities, including, but not limited to:

  • Fine Arts Performances
  • School Clubs
  • Student Leadership
  • Academic Competitions
  • Athletics


Lunchroom Volunteers STILL Needed!

Click Here to VOLUNTEER!

The success of your children’s education can be found in many successes of the school day – this includes their lunch time! In order for the lunch program at Candeo to succeed, we need TWO dedicated and faithful volunteers EACH DAY to help in the cafeteria. Volunteering in the cafeteria is a unique opportunity for you to help out, meet other Candeo parents, and see your child during non-instructional time at school. The cafeteria lunch hour begins at 10:30 am and ends at 12:45 pm. Volunteer duties include setting up and breaking down tables, sweeping, wiping down tables and benches, and monitoring and assisting children with opening lunch items such as drinks, gogurts, pretzel bags, etc.

Please join us!  The Sign-Up Genius in the link below is easy! You can sign up for once a week or twice a month or whatever is convenient for you. If you have volunteered before, we gladly welcome you back; and if this is your first time, we welcome you and thank you for your time. We look forward to seeing parents, grandparents, and friends of students getting involved, and the children will enjoy seeing a familiar face from home in the cafeteria!

If you have any questions, please call Laura @ 623-979-6500 ext. 100.
