Please email [email protected]  to sign up as there are only 8 spots available per age group.

Sunday, December 11 Update


Good Evening Families!

We have two community events coming up. This Wednesday is our Parent Networking Meeting in the Parent Resource Center at 9am. The first Friday we are back in January, I will be meeting parents at Pioneer Park at 2pm for next park meet up. As long as it's not raining, the cold does not scare us away. Last week we have wonderful day at the park that was cold but sunny. Arete kiddos made new friends and their parents did too!

All students are invited on campus through December so we will only be having an on campus Christmas party this year. We still need lots of help with items and volunteers, so please sign up if you can! Arete Christmas Events. On Wednesday for Ms. Doerr/Mrs Von Ruden’s party, we need a parent to serve hot cocoa. The Blended Middle School class needs 25 Hot liquid cups with lids. Thanks to all of the parents who signed up to help at the Blended Middle School Gingerbread House Party! We still could use some fun candy for decorations!

January and February 2023 Enrichments

For classes that are canceled by families with less than one week notice, student funds will be charged and a "to go" kit will be waiting for you in the school office. (Instructors have to buy materials in advance). If a class is full and you want to be added to the waiting list, please email Sarah at [email protected]. Thanks!

If your child is out of funds, Arete will delete them from the class sign up and send you the email address of the instructor to make private arrangements for signing up for the class and for private payment. If classes fill up, we will add more sessions of the same classes. 

For off site enrichment classes:

Stephanie and Wendy at Little Hummingbird Crafts just announced their Arete OC Adventure Class Line Up. Check them out here, sign up, add to a budget form and use Enrichment Funds! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094fa4a928a6fdc61-artclasses

Remember to email Sarah at [email protected] a few days before a kiddos’ birthday if you want to send in treats so I can check for food allergies. Nuts are never allowed, but some individual classes have food allergies that I also monitor closely. Thanks for keeping our students safe. We also strongly encourage healthier treats if possible as some families closely monitor their kiddos’ sugar and food dye intake.

 

Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school as we have several students with severe nut allergies. Kiddos may enjoy nut free granola bars and spreads on their sandwiches and all the nut free favorites when away from Arete. Thanks!

Arete Christmas Events. Mrs. Veblen/Ms. McAlister/Mrs. Codiga's and Mrs. Baker/Mrs. Lingo/Ms. Tomasetti's classes both need 25 Hot liquid cups with lids.

Make Up NWEA (2-8th Grades) and STAR AR (4-8th grades) testing continues this week.  All students are invited onto campus. If you have not signed up for a slot yet, please respond to the email I just sent you.

Choose a Name for Our Mascot, the Dragon

Kids keep asking what our mascot's name is and we are FINALLY going to find out!!!

Student Leadership needs your help picking a name for our school's dragon mascot. Leadership has come up with a few names, but you have the option to make up your own name, as well. You can pick a first name, a last name, or both! Only one entry per student. (Sorry, parents! This is for students only, but you are welcome to ask them their suggestion and then submit the form for them!) The form is due November 30, 2022.

Choose a Name for our Mascot,the Dragon!

The lucky winner gets to choose a t-shirt of their size and color choice!

 

Every year the State asks us to send out the California School Parent Survey. Arete needs you to complete this online survey to learn more about your opinions about our school. This survey is an opportunity to communicate your perceptions about your child’s school. If you have any questions about this survey, please email me at [email protected]

Your participation is voluntary and valuable to us. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement. This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data.  You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you.  Simply skip any such questions. All questions apply to Arete only and the results are for our use only. If you have more than one child at this school, you will only need to complete one survey for this school. Please fill out just one survey about the school using your oldest child as a reference. We use the information from the survey to guide the decisions our school makes and to make a plan for the next school year when we write our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) in the spring. Please click on this link before December 7th to complete the survey.

For ALL classes, please check your calendar to see if your kiddo is REALLY available on the days you select. For classes that are canceled by families with less than one week notice, student funds will be charged and a "to go" kit will be waiting for you in the school office.

Food Allergies

We have many students who have food allergies at Arete. Some are ones that we are able to monitor by making sure that no one brings treats with those allergens into the classroom. Some are ones that are so dangerous to a few of our students, that they can cause great harm if they are in a food that is being eaten nearby these students. We are a nut free school. I have posted this on the Arete Family Facebook page and on the weekly email I send out each week. Yet, we still have students bringing nuts to school and even some kiddos teasing others about their food allergies or saying that students can't sit by them because they have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or nuts in their granola bars. There are large quantities of time that students are not on the Arete campus and can have access to snacks with nuts in them. For the few hours a week that we get to have kiddos on campus, please have them leave the nuts at home. Thanks so much for your cooperation!
