The 4th quarter has now begun and we are rapidly coming to the close of a great school year, filled with many successes. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our students, families, and staff for making this such an outstanding year.
We have many exciting activities and events scheduled as we approach the end of the school year. We will have a Musical Performance of Aladdin on April 27 and 28. Teacher appreciation week is May 7-11, which is an outstanding opportunity to recognize all of our teachers and staff for the hard work they do on behalf of our students. Arroyo Seco’s special end of year night dance will be on May 11. Our final PAC meeting of the year will be held on May 14. Arroyo Seco’s Spring Band Concert will be May 17 and the Spring Choir Concert will be May 22. Our Annual Awards Night will be held on May 29. We look forward to seeing many of you at these celebratory events.
8th grade students participate in Arroyo Seco’s annual Showcase, held this year on May 24. The Showcase provides 8th grade students the opportunity to present their highest quality work from the past two years to community member volunteers. We encourage 7th grade parents to participate as panel members. If you would like to take part in this meaningful event, please contact Mrs. Jan Johnson (ext. 1107) in the administrative office. Our annual 8th grade trip to Magic Mountain will take place on May 30.
The last day of the 2017-18 school year is May 31, which is a minimum day.
Congratulations to our students for working hard this year and for achieving success in academics and in positive citizenship. Thank you to our parents for all of your support throughout the school year and for sending us such great children to work with. Thank you to all of our teachers and staff for your tireless efforts on behalf of our students. I am truly fortunate to be able to work with such a dedicated group of professionals within our special school community.
As the year draws to a close, we still have work to do. Please encourage your children to stay focused despite the weather changes and the inevitable distractions of summer vacation and, for our 8th graders, high school. During these last weeks, we wish all of our students continued success as they grow, learn, and collect many happy memories to cherish in the future.
