From the Principal
Greetings Staff, Parents, Guardians and Community,
I hope this message finds your summer off to a great start. Summer can be the best time of the year to spend quality time with family and friends. Parents and guardians are encouraged to continue to work with their child/children during summer vacation in the areas of mathematics and reading. Research shows that when students spend time reading at least 20 minutes daily, it helps fosters cognitive development in the areas of language development, information processing, reasoning, intelligence and memory. All students should have received a summer reading book packet in their supply bag which was issued during the past two weeks. If you did not receive one, you may stop by the school and pick up a copy on Monday - Thursday between 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.
As we complete this school term, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to parents, guardians, students, and staff for your hard work and dedication during these trying times. We could not have done this work without your support and assistance. Thank you to those who completed the surveys sent out by the district regarding the e-learning process and plans for the 2020-2021 school year. We look forward to sharing the results with you at a later date.
In closing, on behalf of the staff at Arden Elementary, we wish everyone a safe and healthy summer break! Again, I am grateful to be a part of this awesome staff, school and community. Working in partnership, we will make 2020-2021 another great school year! Stay safe!!!
