Hello Arroyo Parents and Guardians,
This week I would like to share a message of gratitude with all of you for the incredible efforts that you have made in support of our school. Perhaps you have been an active volunteer organizing a critical role in the school, running or supporting a program in the classroom, or helping out in the library or play spaces. Maybe you have helped to stuff envelopes, made copies for teachers, or you have helped out at a social function. There are so many ways that you have all contributed to the success of our school and I am so grateful for the strength and support of this community. So, with this message of thanks, I leave you with a quote by Mealody Beattie, “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Thank you for helping to support the vision of Arroyo school to become a reality. I know that we will continue to grow as a school community and I am certain that it will be great because of our outstanding teachers, staff, students, and you!
Marie Crawford, Arroyo Principal

Crossing Guard Update
Our crossing guards currently serve 7 intersections throughout our district, helping kids cross the street safely. The guards are part of The Crossing Guard Company and they are funded by the City and SCSD. Mindy Hill, SCSD Wellness Director, serves as a liaison between their supervisor and the company. Please contact Mindy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you see a guard is not at the intersection between 7:30-9am, 12:30-1:15pm Wednesdays, and 2:45-3:45pm. Also feel free to let Mindy know what’s working!
