The Latest

Thank you, thank you PTA and parents for a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week and for the kind words on Principal Day. We are truly blessed at Art City with the best families and staff!! Thank you for making us feel so special and loved!

Registration: The registration window for 2021-2022 is now open. Each family must be updated in the system in order for us to register your child. For registration information and instructions, please go to our school web page, and click on the Registration button at the top. Students will not be placed into a class until the registration process is complete. If you have any questions, please call Natalie or Kim in the office.

Lost and Found: We have many items in our lost and found. This time of year we get lots of nice coats and jackets. If you are missing anything, please check the lost and found located in the north lobby.

5th/6th Grade Celebration: Friday May 21 will be a day of celebration for 5th and 6th graders. In the morning Mrs. Jensen has arranged a "Middle School Day" for students to help answer questions, practice moving from class to class and alleviate anxiety about middle school. Our amazing PTA is providing a pizza lunch, followed by a kickball tournament. These great kids will end the school day with a parade through the hallways of Art City, complete with the student body cheering them on and wishing them well! Students will receive a certificate and ring pop as they end their parade. We will have a video of the parade on our website. Teachers will send home a slide show of the grade level to parents for a keepsake. There will not be an evening performance or graduation. This celebration is not for families, rather a time for the kids to have a super fun day and celebrate the end of the school year.

Teacher Requests: I am not taking teacher requests for next school year. However, if you have educational concerns regarding your child, please feel free to call me at school to discuss these concerns. I prefer an in person visit or phone call as these discussions are very important. There is movement and change in each grade level, so specific teacher requesting is not feasible.

Moana: Pre-sale tickets will be May 4, 5, and 6. Watch for a flyer on the web page with info and details. Please remember, we have limited seating and masks must be worn. There will be no front sitting area for young children. It is going to be an AMAZING show!

If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to give us a call or email.

Art City PTA

The PTA would like to say THANK YOU to all of the generous parents and donors who made Teacher Appreciation Week so incredibly special and memorable! We had so much wonderful feedback, and we would like to give credit to Heather Benson and her AMAZING committee for making last week a wonderful success!

We would also like to thank Rimports for donating an oil diffuser and 8 essential oils each to every teacher and staff member (70 total!). That was extremely generous and a wonderful gesture for our teachers! We have 13 diffuser packages leftover from last week. We are inviting any parent who would like to make a donation toward one package to do so by emailing Donations start at $20. More info can be found at @artcityeagles on Instagram.

There have been many requests to open up the window for yearbook purchases. Please log into the website on the flyer to purchase a yearbook. A big thank you to Krista Harrison for working so hard on our yearbook!
