    Hello Arleta Families,

    We had an adorable First Grade Parade today! Thank you to our entire community including our First Graders, their creative, organized, committed teachers, the Kellogg Band and of course, the Rosarians! It was so much fun seeing our whole community out together celebrating children and families… the theme of the floats!

    Seeking new or continued Arleta Site Council membership! Arleta Site Council election processes occur every two years. Please Indicate your interest here-- Parent/Caregiver Self Nomination Form

    What is a Site Council?

    School Site councils are made up of teachers, parents, non-certified staff, administrators and community members. There are no prerequisites! We’re looking for parents and community members who want to be part of improving the Arleta community for the benefit of our children, with an emphasis on student learning. Members actively participate by offering thoughts and opinions, volunteering on action items or even facilitating or co-facilitating.

    Who are the members of a Site Council and when does it meet?

    Our goal is a site council representative and inclusive of the diversity within our school community. Meetings are once/month: this year we met online from 5:30-6:30 the 1st Wednesday. We'll set meeting times and days with our new and/or whichever returning members who will make up our next Site Council membership.

    What will our Arleta Site Council do?

    Utilizing a process called “Improvement Science '' we identify a high leverage problem, develop an action plan, measure the impact of our action, then either expand the action, or revise it based on whether it leads to improvement. We identified Arleta’s school-wide goal of literacy opportunity gap, specifically interrupting barriers to strong reading achievement outcomes for our Historically Underserved students. We decided to support a love of reading and the joy of stories and reading to support increased literacy. We enacted our community-wide “Special Stories” project which you hopefully have been able to enjoy at school; if not, come take a look! Our next step is measuring and deciding whether to extend or enhance the project, or to adjust it.
