Jaguars Read – Don’t forget to turn in your reading calendars! There are folders in the main lobby and in each classroom for turning in completed reading calendars. Make sure to turn in your calendar for great prizes!
Box Tops – Our kids have raised over $350 so far this year through box tops for education. Did you know you can increase that amount by designating Arco Iris to receive E-boxtops on you Safeway card? Qualifying purchases will automatically credit to the school. This works for E-labels for education as well. Thank you for your support! Links follow:
Mad Science – Mad Science is coming to Arco Iris! Registration is ongoing, class starts Wednesday, December 3rd and runs through January 21st. Go to https://register.madscience.org/portland/afterschool.aspx to register.
Holiday Giving – Group gifting has been a popular option at Arco Iris this time of year and with the holidays around the corner we know that many of you like to include your child’s teachers and assistants on your gift list. If you choose to participate in this year’s Holiday Giving, your gift amount will be added to gift amounts given by other families. Look for the Holiday Giving form in your child’s backpack.
December Community Event: The Nutcracker – Get your tickets before they are gone, they are selling fast. The Nutcracker Tea is a shortened version performed by North West Dance Theatre after which cookies are handed out by the performers in costume. The performance is held at PCC Sylvania campus on December 19th at 7pm. Tickets went on sale on November 1st and tend to sell out quickly, cost is 14$-30$. This is not a fundraiser and the school will not benefit from any purchases. We felt this would be a fun event for Arco families to enjoy together. There are performances other than the 19th but it might be fun if we can all target the same performance. Buy tickets at: http://nwdt.org/ after you buy your tickets let us know on Facebook or Big Tent so we know who to look for at the performance.
