Principal's Message - Sweaters, Water Bottles & the Random Shoe

Dear Arleta Families - With the weather changing, you know doubt are sending your students to school in more layers, which means more lost & found.


With two buildings, it's difficult to know where clothes belong and to create one space that is convenient to all families. We have put a rolling rack in the annex and a table in the main building, both near the front doors. Please check this areas regularly to see if your students missing sweater, sweatshirt or coat are here.


We will continue to remind students to pick up their layers as they shed them during recess. Families can help get clothes back to students by labeling all outerwear and possible layers.


Please remember as well that students run throughout the day and safe footwear is essential to a student enjoying recess and PE.


If you have questions, concerns or thoughts, please text or call 971-347-4566 or email dkruger@pps.net


Sincerely, Diana

Also, picture retakes are Friday, November 8th.

There are lots of opportunities to make create a healthier environment for our students.
