A Note from your PTO

Dear Parents and Guardians;

As our children count down to the last day of school, it’s hard to believe it truly is almost over.  Before we all head out the door to our summer vacations the PTO wanted to take a moment to reflect, look forward, and most importantly THANK YOU.

This year we accomplished a lot together.  We maintained and expanded some school favorites:

  1. Ice cream social
  2. Mazama Lodge weekend
  3. Community Picnic
  4. Expressed gratitude to our teacher and staff (break room, school sweatshirts, holiday giving, lunch from Elephants, pedicures, and dinner boxes just to name a few.)
  5. Held a successful Jog A Thon and our annual Fiesta Night and Auction

Some of the most notable new projects:

  1. Held our first New Parent Orientation night
  2. Expressed our voices on the Middle School Committee
  3. Recorded our Winter Program performance
  4. Created our first yearbook
  5. Added air conditioners for the school office and some classrooms

These are just a few of the ways parents served their amazing 3,000 parent volunteer hours and we raised over $ 90,000.

What we hope to accomplish in the 2015-2016 school year:

  1. Clarify and simplify the way the PTO communicates with you
  2. Officially deploy BigTent
  3. Redefine the roles and responsibilities of the PTO
  4. Represent Arco Iris in the Beaverton Parade (a favorite)
  5. Participate in more community events

None of this is possible without you!  We are grateful and proud of our wonderful parents and strong community. Thank you for being a part of Arco Iris.  Enjoy your summer, we hope to see you at a summer play date and in the fall.

We look forward to serving with you next year.  With appreciation and gratitude,

Your 2014-2015 PTO Officers

Kim Perreira, Michelle Black, Aisha Bowen, Sabrina Pinkerton, Jen Osawa, Carrie Kirsch, Christa Billings, Erlim Cruz
