As you begin to make your holiday plans, please remember that any international travel will result in quarantine (as many as 14 days) before your child/ren are permitted to return to school. The GreatHearts International Travel Policy can be found in our COVID Incident Response Guidelines and below for your convenience.

  3.  Stay home and avoid contact with others. Do not go to work or school
  4.  Do not take public transportation taxis, or ride-shares.
  5.  Keep your distance from others (about 6 feet or 2 meters)
Curriculum Night
Curriculum Night will not be held in its usual format this year. Instead, we would like to offer parents two resources below:

  • Jake Tawney, VP of Curriculum at Great Hearts, introduces parents to the approach behind Singapore Mathematics as the core curriculum used in grades K-5. View Mr. Tawney's video here.
  • Margie Clouse, Phonics Coach at Great Hearts, introduces parents to the fundamentals of Spalding, the phonics and spelling program for grades K-5. View Ms. Clouse's video here.

We encourage parents to reach out to teachers directly for additional curricular resources.

Did you know that an Archway Arete classroom doesn’t receive property taxes to help fund the good work that our teachers do? We have a smaller to student to teacher ratio than district schools and yet are funded $3,204 less per student which is about $70,488 less in funding per classroom.

Your gift to Community Investment matters! Arete family, we still need to raise $44,159 to fully fund this school year. Support our teachers by making a gift to Community Investment, whatever you have in your budget (whether monthly or one-time) is the right amount. Click here to schedule or make your gift today.
