   Parent Bulletin

May 24, 2001


Dear Parents,


I hope everyone that was able to attend the Carnival last weekend

enjoyed themselves as much as I did.  I want to thank the PTSA and all

the volunteers that made last Saturday a special event.


Tonight is the Ice Cream Social that will wrap up another Young Author’s

Conference.  Thanks to all the teachers, students and parents that put

in the effort to produce some outstanding pieces of literature.  I also

want to acknowledge Ms. Napolitan for putting together another

successful conference.


I-Denta-Kid will be here tomorrow for those that returned their

packets.  Please continue to check the Lost and Found for misplaced

coats.  Our collection grows and grows!


Please remember there is no school on Monday in observance of Memorial

Day.  Have a safe weekend.

Volunteer Luncheon


Please allow us to thank you for the time you have donated to the school

this year.  A large part of the success we have as a school is due to

the time you spend working with the children of the Arbor Heights

community.  Join us on June 7th from 11:30 – 1:00 for the annual

Volunteer Luncheon.  As always, the luncheon promises to have tasty

salads and desserts.  If you have volunteered your time this year (in

the classroom, doing projects at home, driving for field trips,

Fall/Spring Clean-up Days…), please call the school office (933-5350)

and let us know if you can or cannot attend.  We look forward to seeing

you on June 7th! Remember, this is a function for ADULTS ONLY.


The Carnival Committee


Thank you to everyone for making our Carnival and Rummage sale a huge

success it was really a group effort with many people donating their

time and energy (and rummage!).  Thanks, also, to the staff at Arbor

Heights for all of your support.  Mari Davis



>From the PTSA


Sign-up sheets are in the lobby for next year’s PTSA positions.  Some

new programs have been added including Earthquake Preparedness

(arranging the purchase of a container for outside and arranging

water/emergency kit purchases).  Please stop by the lobby to make your

commitment for next year.


Playground Work Party Update:


Thursday, 6/7 after 4:00 p.m. – We will be removing the existing

woodchips from the playscape base.  We need additional volunteers to

take chips away from around the existing structures.


Friday, 6/8 – A contractor will be removing the asphalt


Saturday, 6/9  from 10:00 – 3:00 p.m. – Seattle Works Day Volunteers (75

– 100) will be spreading gravel and new chips.  Parent volunteers will

be supervising their work.  A hospitality volunteer is needed to set up

coolers of pop/water and put up a sign thanking them all.  Media will be

showing up as well.


Sunday, 6/10 from 10:00 a.m. – Parent volunteers will be building the

border higher around the base of the playscape, adding a ramp and then

spreading the chips down.


I will be calling parents who signed up earlier to volunteer on the

playground.  Not as many volunteers will be needed this weekend due to

the Seattle Works Day group, but we are planning a late summer workday

to add landscaping as well.  Please call Janet at 935-7753 if you want

more information.
