Friday Updates – November 30 2012

PTO News

PTO Meeting: December 4th at 6:30.  The focus of this meeting will be the 3rd Annual Fiesta Night and Auction.

Cultural Performance: Please join us for an evening of entertainment and goodies Tuesday December 18th 6:30 – 7:30pm. You can sign up following THIS LINK and let us know if you will attend and if you can help out.

Holiday Giving: Gift giving can be a heartwarming and fulfilling experience. On the other hand, trying to decide on the perfect gift or even finding a parking space can leave us less than merry. Please consider participating in giving a community gift to our Maestras and Arco Iris Staff. Holiday Giving Forms went home in back packs this week and we ask they return by December 7th. If you have any questions please send them to

SCRIP:  Orders for December are due on Friday, December 7. Order forms (bright green paper) went home in backpacks with kids this week, but they are also in the form tower across the hall from the office. Turn your order form and payment in by putting it in the PTO Drop Box next to Maestra Maria’s classroom. Your scrip will be available on Friday, December 14. Contact Cecilia Becerra Thorne,, for any questions.

Restaurant Night December 12th  Leave the cooking to Papa’s Pizza!  This is an all day event and Arco Iris will receive 50% of the value of your order. Be sure to tell your friends and family and don’t forget the Flier! Papas Pizza

Third Annual Fiesta Night and Auction: We are reaching out today to find SPONSORS for this event but we need your help! We really need all parents to tap into their personal network of businesses and companies to help us with this important auction component.  Sponsors can be dentists, accountants, real estate or insurance agents, banks, lawyers, or any other business/professional interested in supporting and doing business with our school community. The sponsorship committee has different packages to offer any interested sponsors, so be sure to put your thinking caps on and email with your ideas or leads!

Jaguars Read: Don’t forget to turn in those reading calendars. It’s never too late!

Scholastic Books: We will be placing the next book order on Monday, December 3 (in the evening) so we can get the books delivered before the holiday.  If there are any outstanding orders or if anyone wants to place an order, please follow THIS LINK. All catalogs and areas can be ordered from, so feel free to browse! Happy Holidays!

    Why is the Cultural Performance on the same night as Sunset High School’s Winter Choral Performance? Do you use the Beaverton School District calendar to try and coordinate events and avoid conflicts?

    • deonneknill says:

      Unfortunately we also need to coordinate our schedule with the church for facility usage. We understand this time would likely conflict with a variety of community events, but we took the best date that was available. Thanks for your understanding.

    Will the cultural performance end at 7:30pm (posted above) or 8:30pm (posted on FB)?
