It's May!

Although it might not have felt like May to start the week, it sure feels like May today. There is so much that happens in May- Grandparents' Day, Staff Appreciation, MAP and F&P testing, the Spring Concert on May 18th, Memorial Day, and lots of learning, too. Help us keep the focus on the learning, ask your child the favorite part of their day, and if they have no answer, check out some of the pictures in the smore or on Twitter or Facebook to help start the conversation.

Pill Drop at Arrowhead May 12th

The Medical Terminology & Business Practices students at Arrowhead are hosting their 7th annual “Pill Drop” next Friday May 12, 2017 from 6:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. at the Mullett Ice Center. Help us beat last year's record when we collected 831 pounds of prescription and non-prescription drugs.
Start saving any of your unwanted or unused prescription and non-prescription medications to drop off at our event. We would also appreciate you helping spread the word to family and friends. The more people that know about this worthy event, the more we are able to get these medications off our streets, keep them out of the wrong hands and help keep our environment safe.
Any questions can be directed to Laura Miller at millerl@arrowheadschools.org or Annette LeMieux at aclemieux@gmail.com.
