Hello Arroyo Parents and Guardians,
I want to extend my warmest wishes for a lovely winter break during this holiday season. I hope that you all have the opportunity to create many wonderful memories with family and friends. It’s a great time to reflect on the wonderful milestones that your child has reached and to celebrate all of the growth and development that is taking place. Thank you for being the caring, committed parents that you are. We are fortunate to be surrounded by people who care about the growth, development, and wellbeing of all children, not just their children. Thank you for building the foundation for our strong community. We are Arroyo strong!
And on a side note…for those of you who are interested in this past month’s Problem of the Month answers, here is the key. We will do our drawing on Monday.
Marie Crawford, Arroyo Principal
