Wish Night

What an incredible success Back to School Night turned out to be for the 2023/2024 school year! We hope you had a great time getting a glimpse of what your child will be exploring and experiencing in the coming months. We want to extend our thanks for any support you’re able to provide to your child’s teacher. While you can “grant wishes” at any point throughout the year, making an early donation helps our teachers plan effectively for the year ahead. If your company offers corporate matching, you have the amazing opportunity to DOUBLE your wish-granting impact! 

You can donate online at Alternatively, you can drop your form and check in the front office (make sure to mark your envelope “Wish Night”) or opt to send in a check along with your donation form to: Arroyo Vista – Attn: Wish Night, 335 El Centro St.

Traffic Reminders

The AV PTA would like to remind everyone that the safety of our students, staff, and families is of the utmost importance.


  • Take your time driving around campus.
  • Be extra cautious when driving through intersections.
  • Lookout for pedestrians & bikers.
  • When possible, park a few blocks away from campus and walk.
  • Utilize crosswalks & crossing guards.


  • Don’t double park while dropping off & picking up your child.
  • Don’t j-walk  or cross without the guard.
  • Don’t park or drop off your child in red zones.
  • Don’t block or park in driveways.
  • Doran St. (Back Gate) is closed to cars.

We encourage walking and biking! 
There is a bike locker on campus for kids to store their bikes and scooters

5th Grade Parents Needed!

Each month, a different grade will be asked to volunteer to keep our drop-off lanes running. Without volunteers, we will have to close the lanes. September is 5th grade month. If you are a 5th grade parent, please, please, please sign up for a day or 3 or 4. We need 4 volunteers per day!   Sign Up HERE.

First Day of School

Yard signs, and banners, and popsicles…oh my! Our Wildcats had a fantastic start to the 2023/24 school year!

Staff Appreciation Brunch

Our teachers, administrators, and staff have been hard at work preparing Arroyo Vista for the start of the new school year, and the AV PTA wanted to make sure they knew how much we appreciate all of their effort! This past Friday, the Staff Appreciation Committee hosted a brunch in the AV Teacher’s Lounge with fruit, refreshments, and Lucky Boy breakfast burritos! A special thank you to the SA committee, Jamie Lee, Minsun Park Meeker, and O’ryan McKinney Bruskin for making sure the new school year is off to a great start.

Popsicle Sales Are BACK!

Grab a frozen treat and support our 5th graders EVERY Tuesday, beginning August 15th!
