• Principal's Message 11/10/2023

    Dear Arleta Families and Guardians,

    We miss your children! I hope they’re finding lots of reasons to smile and ways to make you smile. We continue to dearly appreciate our community’s care and support for our wonderful Arleta teachers and staff, and know our community is united in hoping for an agreement to be reached and for school to resume.

    A reminder to all families to please sign up for Parent/Teacher (and students are welcome) Conferences which are still being planned for Monday, November 20 and Tuesday, November 21, between 8 a.m. - 7:50 p.m. It’s so important to take part in these conferences… when children see their family and school come together to share and discuss their strengths, to listen to them share what’s going well and what’s feeling challenging, it shows your value for the place they spend so much of their time (soon we hope!) and it really increases their success with and commitment to all levels of learning-- academic as well as social emotional.

    Here are the basics (For full details you can look back to the Oct. 20 Dolphin Digest):

    • Use www.MyConferenceTime.com/dolphin to register for your 20 minute conference.

    • Watch this video to learn how to sign up.

    • Families with more than one household: we ask you to schedule one conference per child.

    • If you have several children attending Arleta, click on “Register for Multiple Conferences” and follow the prompts to schedule your children for several conferences.

    This week is National School Psychologist Appreciation Week! Our Arleta School Psychologist, Jacquie Webb (Jac) is at Arleta on Mondays and Tuesdays and is a valued addition to our school community this year, serving and supporting our Arleta students and community in many important ways: support for students’ learning and mental and behavioral health, collaborating with families, teachers, principal and all staff as relevant to improve student support strategies and outcomes, serving on our school safety and crisis teams, and collaborating with community providers to coordinate needed services. Please join me in recognition of and appreciation for our School Psychologist, Jac!

    As always, please know that René, Nicole and I are here at school daily from 8am - 3:30 pm. Please reach out if you have any questions or needs. 503.916.6330.

    Take care and hope to see you soon,
