Friday Updates – October 10, 2014

Student Drop off  – Please remember doors open at 8:15 for drop off and there is no supervision at the door until that time. In the past few days, we have seen students stand at the door by themselves before drop off. Please wait with them until 8:15 or register with our before-school care. This is a safety concern for everyone. Thank you!

Jog-a-Thon – A very big “Muchas Gracias!” to all those that helped out with the Arco Iris Annual Jog-A-Thon last week.  We had parents marking laps, labeling bottles of water, serving pasta, and color coding all of the envelopes. It was a fantastic community effort!

Envelopes with pledge money should be turned in to the office or the classroom no later than Friday, October 17th at 9:00 am. Online donations are still possible at Online Donations for Arco Iris 2014 Jog-A-Thon

The Jog-a-thon celebration will be at 2:45 on Wednesday, October 22nd in the gym. Awards for running laps and drawings for the prizes will be exciting! The current online donations total approximately $8,000 – we are 1/3 of the way to our goal. We hope we will be sending Principal Smith home covered in whip cream from a pie!

Keep your eyes on the signs in the lobby, we are tracking our progress to our $25,000 jog-a-thon goal and our $85,000 year goal.

Special thanks to our sponsors:  Reedville Catering, Noodles & Company, Nike, Sysco, Oregon Heritage Apple Farm, Aim High Martial Arts, Northwest Limousine, Memory Bybee (Zumba class), Aaron Nielsen (Chess class), and Arco Iris PTO!

Volunteer news – Our volunteers are awesome! We want to thank all of you for the parent participation with this Jog-a-thon. We had over 60 volunteers this year just for the event alone. It was a great turn out and a great display of our community strength.   Thank You for all of your time and energy put into our event.

Book Fair – We will be hosting our annual book fair October 27-31st. We need a few volunteers to make the event possible please check www.parentbooker.com to sign up!
