Winter break is almost here. As you prepare for the holidays please be advised that the PTO will not be collecting funds to pool for teacher gifting this year. Instead we invite you to express your family’s appreciation of our staff individually. Arco Iris has a wonderful support staff that supports the students and teachers, don’t forget to share your appreciation with them.
Buenas Tardes for December 18th:
Our gracious staff are giving up some of their free time to support working families, on the half day of school (December 18th). Some staff members will remain on campus until 5pm, to allow working families to avoid use of a day off. You must PRE-REGISTER and pay ahead of time. The cost is $20 per student and we are honoring the sibling discount for this rate as well.
We need a minimum of 20 students to enroll in order to make the program available for that day!
Pre-registration ends December 11, 2015 at 4:00pm. Fill out the registration form attached and submit to the office.
2015 Winter Performance Keepsake DVD:
Once again we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy The Arco Iris Winter Performance.
Don’t worry about charging up your phone or watching the event through a view screen as you try your best to capture all the moments. The performance will be recorded for our families to purchase. Enjoy being in the moment, knowing that you have a DVD copy reserved for you.
To pre-order your DVD of the 2015 Winter Performance at $12 each, place a check labeled “DVD”, in the PTO box by December 11th. Orders placed by December 11th will be ready for pick up on December 18th. Watch for our table at pick up on December 10th. Orders placed between December 12th and 18th will be $15 and ready for pick up, the second week of January.
