Family Math Game Night

We are excited to announce our FIRST Family Game Night on Wednesday, October 26th from 5:30-6:30. Bring the whole family to learn some new math games that you get to take home and play some of the math games that Arete owns. Sign Up to attend and please select a spot for every family member four and over who attends.
Date: 10/26/2022 (Wed.)
Time: 5:30pm - 6:30pm PDT


Good Evening families!

This year PRSD has a goal to improve student attendance. If your family does not turn in enough satisfactory work samples or they have missing attendance days, your Educational Advisor will reach out weekly by phone or email to see how things are going and if there is anything we can do to support you.  If you have a successful 20 day meeting without missing assignments or attendance, your family is exited from this attendance intervention. We will continue to have monthly treats for students who turn in all logs and satisfactory work samples on time. Next month are (nut free) chocolate chip cookies). Smaller Oreo cookies will be offered to siblings.


Reminder that students may be dropped off at 8:55 and can walk directly to class. Students should not be dropped off any earlier or head out to the playground unless they are supervised by parents. Pick up is at 12pm. Students who are not picked up will be walked up to the office at 12:05 to wait for their ride to pick them up.


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.


We have lots of people who have signed up to bring in their kiddos for Trick or Treating, lots of kiddos who will already be there that day, and not enough people signed up to bring in and hand out treats. If you have not already done so, please sign up to bring something in to hand out that day (it can be healthy, sweet, a toy, whatever). If we do not have enough people to hand out some goodies, we need to cancel the event. Thanks so much!

Sunday, September 11 Update

Good Evening families!


This week we are thankful for cooler temperatures and yet now dealing with the poor air quality. School is not usually canceled due to poor air quality as often “our schools are better equipped, with higher quality air ventilation and filtration systems, than residential homes, “ according to Nevada County Superintendent of Schools. We will be closely monitoring the air quality throughout the day when determining if students can be outside for breaks. If we are able to be outside, all students will have the opportunity of coming inside the library with me if they are struggling with the outside air.


*Supply and Curriculum Orders are all caught up (unless you ordered them just last week). Some have been sitting there for 2-3 weeks. If you have received an email to come pick up supplies and curriculum, it would be super helpful if you would come and pick it up. You can pull up to the delivery spot to the right of the Arete building and we can help you load it up. 

 

*CHESS CLUB is off to a great start. Our next day will be 

Friday, September 23th from 12:30-1:10. Mr. Walsh recommends  kids sign up on chesskid.com and put [email protected] (his email) as the guardian.
