Let the School Year Begin

I am so excited to begin a new school year. The energy and excitement is contagious. A few things you need to be aware of:

  • August 16 from 2:30-4:00 is our annual Meet the Teacher afternoon. Please join us between 2:30-4:00. Come meet your teacher, see your classroom, pick up important information about your class, parent information, check out who your classmates will be, and stop by to say hello! This is such a fun and exciting time!! Please do not come early as teachers are finishing setting up their classroom and won't be ready to greet students and parents.
  • Stop by the office and pick up a magnet with school info and events. You can also pay donation and lunch money at this time.
  • Be sure to stop by the PTA tables. We have awesome school shirts you can purchase and TAKE HOME with you the same day! Thank you PTA.
  • Please, please join PTA. It cost just $6.00. Joining PTA does NOT mean you have to be on any committee or sign up to do anything, it is a way of supporting our PTA who works so hard all year to make Art City a great, fun and exciting place to be.
  • The first day of school is Wednesday August 17 at 8:45 AM! It's going to be AMAZING!
  • Kindergarten parents will receive a call on Aug. 22 from their child's teacher. Please make sure you have signed up for an assessment time on Aug. 17, 18 or 19. You should have received an email with a link to Sign Up Genius. If not, please call the office.


We depend on your generous donations! Remember, we do not send home a supply list with students. All school supplies will be provided for each student. Please log into Infinite Campus parent portal and choose 'fees'. We ask for $25 per student. This helps us cover materials (pencils, paper, glue, markers), assemblies and class needs. 80% or more (I like to have 85-90% go to classrooms) goes directly to classroom teachers to use for class needs (like extra markers, binders, pens, Clorox Wipes), supplement field trips, parties, gifts for Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. and other needs the grade level may have. The other percentage of funds pay for assemblies, student rewards (Student of Month, Awesome Eagle, etc) 100% of your donated funds go to the students at Art City!!! Please support our school and make your donation. Many parents want to make a larger donation than $25. The system requires us to have a $ amount. If you choose to donate differently than the stated amounts, please call or drop by the office. Natalie can take credit card charges over the pone, or you can pay by cash or check in the office. Thank you so very much for your donations. It makes all the difference in the world to our teachers!!

Big changes at Art City!

Lunch - No longer free to all students

The grant for free breakfast and lunch for all students has expired. That means that this coming school year parents must pay for breakfast and lunch. Please note that the lunch ladies cannot refuse service, so if your child goes to get a tray they will be served. Also, students MUST take a fruit and a vegetable each day. This is law for school lunch programs.

Breakfast: at this time I am not sure of the exact price. It is less than the cost of lunch.

Lunch: $2.00 per student Adults $4.00

Free/Reduced lunch must be applied for each year. The application can be found on the Infinite Campus portal. In the menu select "More" > "Meal Benefit" If you think you may qualify, please fill out the forms.

You can check your child's lunch balance in the Infinite Campus Portal at any time.
