Thank you all so very much for all of your support and feedback regarding the first month of school. We are all working together to make the school as safe as possible for our children. We can’t do that without the help of families.
Just a couple points to highlight how safety is always our first priority:
- Our district is utilizing the Raptor system. This allows for us to have an electronic way to monitor who is entering our school. You will need your ID when you come to the greeter’s desk.
- We continue to partner with local law enforcement to ensure that we have school procedures that are followed and students are provided with safety training at our school.
- Our district School Resource Officer, Deputy Shields, is a familiar face at our school and works with students regarding character development.
During the month of September, I was able to visit each classroom to discuss school rules. It would be helpful if you continued the discussion at home. We read the book Superhero Instruction Manual and we talked about what it means to be respectful, responsible and ready!
We have a couple of amazing family events in October to bring our Arcade Family together:
- Our annual Halloween Parade! Please join us on October 28th at 2:00. Our parade will begin promptly at 2:00. Please stand on Church Street (on both sides).
- HSA’s annual Trunk or Treat. Create a trunk or just come and enjoy. October 29th 11:00-1:00. If you are going to have a trunk please be there at 10:00 for set up.
Thank you everyone for a great start to a new school year. We are happy to be back in a routine. Please remember that my door is always open. Thank you for sharing your children with us.
