Open Enrollment begins today!

As you saw from our post earlier today, Open Enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year begins today. This is for NEW students only. If your child is currently attending Arco Iris, you do not need to complete the online application. However, siblings not currently attending and wanting to enroll next fall need to go through the online application process. Please see our enrollment page for more details.

Arco Iris Town Hall Meeting

The Arco Iris School Board has scheduled four town hall meetings this year in the Prayer room. The second one is coming up on Tuesday, January 12 @ 6:00-7:00 pm. Please join us for some drinks, snacks and casual conversation. This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and get to know each other. Hope to see many of you there.


6th Annual Fiesta Night and Auction!

  • Don’t miss out on the Early Bird pricing, now through February 15th. Prizes will be drawn every week through January so the earlier you sign up, the better your chances. Consider buying a table (for a cheaper per seat cost) and inviting friends and family as well. Buy tickets HERE:
  • Get your 20 hours/year of volunteer service in by helping out. We’ll need volunteers in January/February for short projects. You can also sign up to help the day of the event. Please contact our auction team for more details.
  • Parent Parties – Would you be willing to host a party for other parents? We have parties listed on poster boards at the auction where parents can sign up to attend. We’ve had Margarita Parties, cooking parties, Wine in the Countryside; anything you can dream of is an option! Please contact our auction team to host one.
  • Teacher Parties – We need parents to sponsor a party that the teacher hosts for students. Parents can sign up for a “poster party” at the auction for their child to attend. We’ve had ice skating parties, tea parties, lunch with the teacher. Please contact our auction team to sponsor a Teacher party (parents can join together).
