Friday Updates – December 13th 2013

Holiday Giving  Group gifting has been a popular option at Arco Iris this time of year and with the holidays around the corner we know that many of you like to include your child’s teachers and assistants on your gift list. Should you choose to participate in this year’s Holiday Giving, your child received a donation form in his/her backpack last week and this week. Please return completed forms and payment (checks payable to Arco Iris) by Monday, December 16th. If you have any questions about the holiday giving program, please email the PTO.

Next week is Spirit Week! Our student council has organized the themes for Spirit Week this year. It will be held from December 16 to December 20 – students must either participate in spirit week or wear their uniform:

  • 12/16 – Sport team day/Jersey day
  • 12/17 – Superhero day
  • 12/18 – Crazy hair day/Neon day
  • 12/19 – Opposite day: Students in free dress/teachers in uniforms
  • 12/20 – Lazy day/Athletic day

Parking reminder – We ask that you please refrain from parking in front of the playground. This is a safety concern as we have seen too many near misses with vehicles backing out of this area when it is also busy with pedestrians. If you have questions on where you should park for morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up, please see our web page for drop-off and pick-up procedures, or refer to this graphic. Thank you for helping keep our families safe!

Due to low attendance the Consejo meeting was cancelled this week.   We are currently working to join the PTO.  There are many areas of work that can be strengthened by operating under the PTO. We are also striving to streamline our communications in order to be a stronger facilitator between staff and parents. The Consejo board has voted to seek approval from the PTO to join their group. Please look for more updates in the upcoming weeks.
