Principal's Message

Greetings Arleta Families -


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Arleta School! I want to thank everyone for the warm Arleta welcome. From students to staff to families, everyone has greeted me with a smile on their face and a kind word. I couldn't be happier to be a part of the Arleta community.


This community newsletter is just one of many ways that we will be communicating with families this year. We also have a vibrant facebook page Arleta School and Families United and an Arleta School website. If you are not getting communications from the school, please let us know. It is important to us that all families feel informed about what's happening at Arleta.


We have many new members to welcome to our teaching teams: Michelle Sphon and Marcy Berkowitz in Kinder, Alisha Green in 2/3, Amy Lumbreras in 4/5, Jennifer Sollman in 7/8 Math and Nick Legambi in SES 678. We will add their faces to the hallway gallery soon. Please make sure to say hi and introduce yourself when you see a new face.


Please know that if you want to share a story, discuss an issue or just say hi, I will do my best to be available to you. The best time to catch me informally is in the morning or after school on the porch. If you want a more formal sit down time, please email me at dkruger@pps.net or text me at 971-347-4566 and we can set up a time. Please know that I will be spending a lot of time in the classrooms where the important work takes place, so I might not always be in the office if you drop-by, but you can always make an appointment in the office with one of the secretaries.


The beginning of the year always brings a sense of hope and possibilities. New teachers, new friends and new opportunities to learn and grow. Have a great year!


~ With Gratitude, Ms. Kruger
