• Principal's Message 10/13/2023

    Dear Arleta Families and Guardians,

    Across our Arleta classrooms we are focused on academic learning and how to ensure everyone in our community feels part of and essential to a caring, supportive classroom and school community. Read more here about some ways staff across our school are leading this work, and ways we are working on this as adults, too.

    Our paraeducator Mr. Andrew is on paternity leave. He and his wife have just brought Cecily Rose into our world and Arleta Community this past Wednesday, October 11!

    A warm Arleta Welcome to Mr. Andrew’s guest paraeducator, Todd Gienger. Here is an introductory message from Todd for our community:

    My name is Todd Gienger. I’m currently a student in Pacific University’s Master of Ed. program. I’m very excited to join the community at Arleta for a few weeks as a para while Andrew settles into life as a Dad. I spend most of my time outside of school and work hanging out with my two children. We’re an active bunch, spending our time camping, hiking, and taking weekend getaways to the coast. I love cooking, gardening and working through the pile of books I keep on my bedside table. I’m excited to get to know the staff and students at Arleta over the next few weeks. What a great opportunity to build my own practical skills, and contribute to a great experienced team.

    Have a wonderful weekend, and please reach out with any questions or if you have anything to share. lhawking@pps.net (please use “message from Arleta parent” in your subject line) or text: 503.348.3982
