From the Desk of the Principal

Dear Arcadia Star Families,

There are many exciting activities coming up! Be sure to read below about the upcoming family events we will be having at Arcadia. Again, parent involvement is the number 1 indicator and predictor of student success, and we have really enjoyed spending time with the Arcadia family learning community!

Please be sure your students are dressing for the weather, as they go outside each day as long as the weather permits. Also, be sure to keep students home if they are sick and notify our office.

Midyear assessments will begin for students to measure their academic growth. Be sure to remind them to do their best and "show what they know." Getting a good night's sleep on testing days and getting to school to eat a good breakfast will help with that.

  • Dec. 12- 23rd: Testing for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th
  • Jan. 9th- 20th: Testing for K and 1st

Together we are better!

Wishing Happiness, Peace, Joy, and Health,

Meaghan Timmons

Principal, Arcadia
