PTO's 8th-grade Party!

3430 Mission Avenue
Please note that this is not an Arcade Middle School event; this event is hosted by Arcade's Parent Teacher Organization.
We are looking for a SPAC representative for Arcade!
The purpose of Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Committee (SPAC) is to give parents an avenue for two-way communication with central office staff, as well as an opportunity to meet and discuss district-wide issues with the superintendent. It also gives the district an opportunity to provide parents with information and allows them to offer their input.
Most important, SPAC is committed to excellence in education and is interested in and supportive of all students in the San Juan Unified School District.
The SPAC accomplishes its purpose because it allows feedback from parent-to-parent, which is the best means of first-hand communication in getting information back to the schools.
Based on past evaluations, parents feel they are the means to open communication involving activities throughout the district. SPAC participants are expected to communicate to their respective schools on a regular basis through Principals, PTO, PTA, School Site Councils, newsletters, etc.
If you are interested in becoming the 2022 - 2023 representative for Arcade, please contact Arcade's principal, Lindsey McManigal at 916-971-7300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
