Weekly Wildcat – April 24

AV PTA Parent Education

Over the past two years, we have all become one with our devices – we are online for school, work, exercise, catching up with friends and the list goes on. How can we help our kids and ourselves re-learn to socialize in person and to re-engage with the world while still building on the skills and opportunities that our digital connections have made possible during this challenging time?

The PTA Parent Education Committees at AV, Marengo, and MHS are excited to bring you this opportunity to learn and discuss this important topic on Thursday, April 28th at 6:30, via Zoom!  Please click here to RSVP.

Attend this virtual, live session to hear from expert Dr. Devorah Heitner, author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives. Her mission is to cultivate a culture of empathy and social/emotional literacy. Dr. Heitner’s work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington PostThe Wall Street Journal, and CNN Opinion. She has a PhD in Media/Technology & Society from Northwestern University and has taught at DePaul and Northwestern.

2022 Honorary School Service Awards 

 

 

It’s time to honor the volunteers who help make our school community special.  Each year the Arroyo Vista PTA recognizes members of the AV community for outstanding service to our youth during the annual Honorary School Service Awards ceremony. These honorees have shown outstanding service to Arroyo Vista outside of routine or assigned responsibilities.

The HSSA Committee is currently seeking nominations of deserving candidates from the community.  If you would like to submit a name for consideration, please complete the form linked below.  Thank you!

Awards may be given in the following three categories, although your nomination does not need to specify which one:

  1. Certificate of Appreciation: Certificates are given to an individual in the PTA, school, or community to recognize their special contribution.
  2. Honorary School Service Award: HSSAs are given to an individual in the PTA, school, or community in special recognition of outstanding service, often over the course of several years.
  3. Continuing School Service Award: CCSAs are given to individuals in the PTA, school, or community for their continued outstanding service, often even after leaving Arroyo Vista.

Nominations are Due April 29th. 

Please submit a separate form for each nominee.
