Friday Updates – May 15th, 2015

Update on the 5th Annual Fiesta Night and Auction – We are thrilled to let you know that the results of the 5th Annual Fiesta Night and Auction exceeded our goals and together we raised $60,000 for Arco Iris! This wouldn’t have happened without the support of our teachers, staff, and board, the hard work and volunteer hours of our parents, donations, creativity, and the dedication of everyone who volunteered to help make the auction come together so beautifully. You are a part of an amazing community here at Arco Iris and we can’t thank you all enough for your support and generosity!

Thank you! Becky Schiefelbein and Sarah Coakley, Auction Co-Chairs


Arco Iris First Annual Yearbook is coming soon! The Arco Iris PTO is very excited to announce that we will have our first ever school wide yearbook for the 2014-2015 school year. In March, 3rd-8th graders were invited to design a yearbook cover and the PTO was blown away with the number of artwork pieces and the quality. All of the entries will be printed in the yearbook and Rowan Greenroyd’s will be our cover artwork! Brilliant job Jaguars!

Hillsboro Hops July 3rd – Here’s what a parent said about last year’s game:

“Last year was our first Hops game.  The kids had so much fun seeing their friends from school.  At the game there was a play area for the kids – with a bouncy house!  The firework show alone was worth the price.  We had a blast and will be going again. Hope to see you all there.”
