Dear Arleta Families,
I hope that your family has transitioned smoothly into summer vacation mode. We are staying busy finalizing classroom moves and preparing to welcome students back on Monday, August 27th. Included in this letter is information about classroom moves, when class assignments will be mailed out, dates for school/family events, and where to find School Supply Lists.
Ø Kindergarten is moving into the main building and First grade to the Annex.
Ø Middle School Math/Sci classes are moving to the first floor and LA/SS to the second floor.
Classroom Assignment Notification:
Class assignments will be mailed out on August 20th, one week before the first day of school. Having balanced classes helps us establish and maintain healthy classroom cultures, and we are often making last minute changes in response to late registration. Thanks for your patience!
Important Dates for Next Year:
Grade Level Supply Lists:
School supply lists are posted on the "Arleta School News" section of our Homepage. They are also displayed in the windows of our main entrance throughout the summer.
Thank you so much for your support and have a great summer!
Principal, Arleta K-8
The school year was over, but more than 500 K-5 teachers were hard at work preparing for the 2018-19 academic year at the PPS Summer Institute at Roosevelt High School. The two-day training gave teachers the opportunity to dig into the new language arts curriculum, and hear from teachers who are already using it. The teachers also learned how the curriculum aligns with state standards and the district’s newly adopted scope and sequence — an academic term for what will be taught and in what order.
Dear PPS Families,
As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close, I would like to appreciate our students, teachers, support staff, and school leaders for all their hard work. They have all earned a well-deserved summer break. This past week, more than four thousand students walked across the stage at the various high school graduation ceremonies and received their diplomas. Congratulations to our seniors on reaching this important milestone. We wish you much success in your next endeavors.
