News from Arbor View Elementary School: October 18, 2019

A Note from Principal Burnett

Dear Arbor View Families,

I cannot believe we are at the time of year to be messaging about snow/cold weather, but we are here! As the weather is turning colder, please remind your children to wear coats, gloves, and hats. We do go outside until the real feel is 10 degrees. When it snows, please send in snow clothes if your child would like to play in the snow. Please send extra clothes in your child's backpack (socks, shirt, and pants). If your child gets wet we would like to have extra clothing available so they are dry the rest of the day.

Halloween Harvest is coming up on October 26th! There is a need for additional volunteers that day if you are able to help out. Please see the information below for time slots and contact information to volunteer. There are so many exciting things to do and eat at the Halloween Harvest. Don't forget to send in your order form to school (below).

School photos are in and will be in your child's backpack today. Some of you will receive duplicates. Don't worry, you will not be charged double. We were missing student pictures and they reprinted the whole file. So, now some of you have extra pictures of your children! Retakes are scheduled for November 1st.

Have a wonderful weekend!
