Happy Thanksgiving Week!

Holiday Drop & Shop! Sharpen your pencils, start making your shopping list, and get ready for some child-free holiday shopping! On Friday, December 6th the Arco Iris PTO will be sponsoring a Holiday Drop & Shop event at school. Younger siblings are welcome to attend. You can sign up HERE!

Online holiday shopping in your future? The biggest shopping day of the year is just days away. If you are shopping online with Amazon, why not raise money for the school and cross those must have gifts off your list. Amazon lets you do just that. Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the school! Please share this link with your friends and family too. Every little bit helps.

Vision and hearing screening time: The Lions Club will be here on Wednesday, December 4th to perform hearing and vision screenings for all students in 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. We need 8 volunteers to come in and assist them for hopefully no more than a couple hours starting at 10:15. Please sign up HERE if you can help.

PTO Meeting – The evening PTO meeting will need to be moved to Tuesday, December 3rd at 6 p.m. Also the auction committee is looking for a communications lead, volunteers to work on class projects and a party coordinator lead.Please contact Co-Chair Sarah Coakley if you are interested. And look for additional information in the December Newsletter! This is a fantastic event, and vital to our school’s continued operations.

Consejo de padres – A special meeting will be held December 11 at 6:30 to discuss mainstreaming our focus and the potential of being absorbed by the PTO. September minuets have been approved and will be posted in the Consejo de Padres portion of the Arco Iris website soon.

Shoes for Haiti – Our friends at BCC are collecting new shoes and socks for children in Haiti. They will be sending a team of women to Haiti in January to deliver these much needed items. If you are interested in donating shoes or socks (or both) for this great cause, there is a collection bin outside the church’s main office.
