News from Arbor View Elementary School: December 13, 2019
A Note from Principal Burnett
Dear Arbor View families,
It has been a busy week at Arbor View! Many classrooms started MAP testing this week. Next week will continue to be full of activities right up to break.
Sing-along on Friday: Next week, on Friday, December 20, we invite you to come in and join our students for a holiday sing-along in the gym. We'll start at 2 p.m. After the performances, students will go back to their classrooms for parties.
Please use the parking lot for pick up: Families that pick up your children, please park in the parking lot. Many families are parking on Ironwood and blocking walking access. There is a white line that should not be crossed by cars on Ironwood. This was put there to ensure a safe walking path. Cars are parking over that line and over the crosswalk line. This means children who are walking have to go around the cars, into the street, and into moving traffic. Safety is always our top priority, so please park in the parking lot to pick up students.
Monday Menu Lunch Change 12/16
