Magic In The Middle

Arcola Newsletter

Last week in April!

We are heading into the last week of April, a little over a month left of school. We have come so far and are continuing to rise and face every challenge that comes our way. Stay tough and strong Arcola.

The Counselor Corner

Unsure of how to handle a conversation with your child about underage drinking? Parents are the most important influence in their children’s lives. When we have open, honest and informed conversations we can help our children to grow into healthy adults. The attached flyer provides details on two opportunities to participate (virtually) in a conversation about underage drinking that will give you valuable information and help you create an atmosphere of trust.


Also attached is a supplemental issue of Middle Years, a newsletter focused on helping you improve your student’s success in school. We hope you enjoy reading it!
