ARCADIA TITAN EBLAST
We really did rock the first week of school!

We can't apologize for the hot weather but we hope your Titan's week went well.

We had some growing pains, traffic jams, lunch lines, and missing desks, but for what its worth it was the first week of school and procedures will flow much more smoothly as we enter next week.

Please be assured that your PTO has worked tirelessly with our hard working Admin team to answer your emails and voice your concerns. You have been heard and solutions are being implemented.

Let us go forward and focus on building a positive and productive year for our teenagers!
