Sunday, March 31 Update

Hello all,

New updates are all in bold and continuing information is in regular type. Hope that helps!

We are looking forward to hosting our PRSD Board of Trustees monthly board meeting at Arete on Tuesday, April 9 at 6pm. We will be hosting our Student Showcase that week. We are hoping that some families will bring their kiddos out that night to describe their awesome projects to the board. Please email me at [email protected] if you are able to do this!

*April 9 and 10 Arete Student Showcase- Similar to our STEAM Showcase last year- we are inviting ALL students to display projects they work on during the year. Please drop off projects on April 4, 5, or 7 for us to create the display. Then come back on April 9/10 at 9am to stand by your project. Classes and other interested adults are invited to view the displays starting at 9:15.

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!
