Many Thanks to our Parent & Student Volunteers

Many thanks to all of the parent and student volunteers who helped to make Registration Week run smoothly. A number of parents were there every day, and we got a big boost from our wonderful Stugo, NHS and Ambassador students who brought their energy and enthusiasm.  Special thanks to substitute teacher Mr. Nelson and all the staff who worked so hard all week.
Thank you to Project Graduation 2018 Supporters

A big thank you to the many individuals, families, businesses, and AHS staff that supported the Class of 2018 Project Graduation event.  There were those who gave of their time and some through donations - through sign up genius, through Amazon, through fundraising Trivia Night, anonymously and some by surprise!  We are so grateful to ALL of you!! To those of you jumped in at the beginning and stayed the course...your commitment sustained us! To those of you showed up last minute and were all clutch in those final hours - you carried us!!  There are some of you we never caught your name - we thank you. This Arcadia community is one of a kind - we could not have pulled off such a safe and surprisingly fun night for our kids without your help. Thank you for saying yes to our seniors and gifting them such a memorable event!

Arcadia One Lunch Volunteers Opportunity
Contact Karen Treon at  ktreon@gmail.com
We are looking for volunteers to help with Arcadia One Lunch.  If you are new to Arcadia this year, One Lunch allows for the entire Arcadia community - students and staff - to have lunch at the same time.  The benefits are many, but we can only pull it off with the help of parent volunteers.  The time commitment is minimal - less than an hour every other week - and it is a fun volunteer opportunity.  We have a few spots left - including coveted kiosk shifts!
