    Hello wonderful Arleta families,


    I am so excited that tomorrow is our Arleta Winter Bazaar. For those of you who are new to Arleta, this is a beloved annual tradition where the students are the makers selling their wares. It is a great opportunity to support student creativity, have fun with the community, and do a little shopping. I’m looking forward to seeing what our student vendors have made, partaking in some bake sale goodies, checking out our Dolphin Spirit Wear, and saying hello to families and kids.


    Tomorrow is also the last day of the Scholastic Book Fair. A good part of the proceeds from the book fair come back to Ms. Street to purchase books for our library. The Bazaar will take place in the cafeteria (accessed through the breezeway), and the Book Fair will be in the library. Both events will take place between 11am and 2pm.


    Ms. Aud shared two wonderful parenting resources we thought we’d share here: an online (zoom), NAMI Basics peer-led educational course for parents and caregivers of youth up to age 21 experiencing mental health barriers and/or behavioral challenges. The class meets weekly for six weeks on Tuesday evenings from 5-7:30, January 9th-February 13th.

    See a flyer here. Register online here.

    And, a drop-in Parent Support Group for parents and caregivers of children/adolescents experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition and/or behavioral challenges, on the first & third Wednesdays of every month from 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM, also online via Zoom. You can join the notification list here to receive group reminders and meeting links.

    For more information, contact Alyssa Carnes (she/her/hers), Program Coordinator, Community Programs, NAMI Multnomah.

    Hope to see you tomorrow, and have a wonderful weekend!
