Construction Update from Principal Stevens
As the construction on the football field is concluding, the community to the south of our campus and east of Tavan has reached out regarding us opening the walk through gate. I want to partner with the community as we try to find a win-win. I need to balance allowing access to campus with protecting the new field from student traffic. The need that we have is to keep students off of the field as they enter campus through that turnstile gate. Volunteers to monitor the walkway would help us keep students off of the field.  If you are interested in volunteering to do so, please reach out to the Lori McClelland at volunteers@arcadiapto.org

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!
