Thanks to Mrs. Dobrzensky, Mr. Ezidro, and Ms. Hardcastle for a fun Turkey Trot! Every student in the school ran one mile, the fastest students raced against Mr. Hemauer. Every participant received a raffle ticket for a free pie and the fastest runner got to pie Mr. Hemauer and won a Thanksgiving dinner!




See's Candy and Popcorn

This is a message from the Carmen Dragon PTA:

See's Candy can be picked up afterschool on Thursday, November 19th. Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of our control, popcorn will not be distributed until after Thanksgiving break. Those orders may be picked up on Thursday, December 3rd afterschool. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Thank you for your understanding.

Run/Walk to Support Carmen Dragon Elementary

Saturday, December 12th is the 39th annual Antioch Holiday Run and Walk for Health at Contra Loma Regional Park in Antioch. The event starts with a 1 mile run/walk at 9:00a.m., a 3 mile run/walk at 9:35 and a 10k run at 9:30. We would like to encourage Carmen Dragon students and their families to participate in this event because the AUSD Elementary School with the most registered runners will receive a grant for the school.  Registration forms can be picked up in the office, online at  or on the morning of the event.  We look forward to seeing you at this wonderful community event.

Contra Costa County Bullying Prevention Task Force


In March 2013, members of the Coordinating Council decided to form a task force to create a collaborative effort to coordinate and disseminate information, resources, and strategies to address the issue of bullying and cyber-bullying in schools.


  • To clarify a common definition of bullying, and establish guidelines for the effective evaluation of bullying prevention efforts.
  • To identify curriculum, resources, best practices, and other strategies to prevent and address bullying behavior in order to provide appropriate training and intervention for parents, school administrators, teachers and students.
  • To establish an easily accessible central location to house information, materials, and other resources available for school staff and parents.
  • To disseminate information to schools and the public in order to heighten awareness regarding the negative effects, along with prevention strategies, related to bullying and cyber-bullying.
