Friday Updates – October 12 2012

Thanks to everyone who made it to our fundraiser night at the Old Spaghetti Factory! We had a great turnout and it was fun to see all our families there in their new Arco Iris spirit wear.

If you have not yet turned in your Field Trip Permission form, please do so ASAP! Your child will not be able to attend our school field trips, including the upcoming Jog-A-Thon, without your written approval. If you need another copy of the form, you can find it on our blog under Important Docs & Forms.

There will be a school board meeting next Wednesday, October 17th, at 6:00 pm. We will be expanding our school board from 5 to 7 members at this meeting. Meetings beginning in November will be the third Thursday of every month. Due to a scheduling conflict, we have a change in meeting day for October only. The meeting agenda will be posted early next week, on our Board Meeting Page.
