We are almost there!

Dear Families,

We have 13 days left to pour into your sweet children. We will continue to engage students at high levels and have a little fun along the way. We hope you can attend Friday's Field Day for Kindergarten through Fourth grade. Your child's teacher should have communicated that information to you. Fifth grade will have their Field Day on Tuesday, May 23rd, in the afternoon after their Celebration Ceremony.

Arcado invites you to attend our Spring Title I Planning meeting on Tuesday, May 9th, at 5:00 in the Cafe. You can then head over to our last Chick-Fil-A night from 5:00- 7:00 that Tuesday. PTA will host a meeting on Thursday, May 18th, at 6:00 in the Arcado Cafe.

Our students are successful because of you! Thank you for being a part of the Arcado family! Enjoy the last days of school!

Working with the students, staff, and the Arcado Family is truly an honor and a privilege.

If there is anything I can do to support you, please don't hesitate to contact me at or 770-925-2100. It is a pleasure to serve in the Arcado community.

Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Paula Thompson
