Fall Book Fair Recap

We had a great turnout for our Fall Book Fair and Pajama Story Night! Thanks to your support, we raised a lot of money to support the AV Library. The PTA would like to thank all the volunteers who helped with the Book Fair, especially our co-chairs, Jenn Koca and Kelly Kwan!

All School Sing Spirit Outfit Information

Our All School Sing performance is fast-approaching on Friday, December 15th! We’re asking kiddos to dress in clothing from any rock genre for the performance. Denim, black, and white are rock staples you probably have in your closet. Pinterest is also a great resource for those that want a more involved look. Contact Kelly Kwan if you need assistance!

Wish Night Alert – Embrace the Season of Thanks!

As we step into November, and close out our first trimester of school, we give thanks for the incredible staff at Arroyo Vista. Your support of Wish Night is not only a chance to create lasting memories for your child but also a fantastic way to show our staff how much they mean to your family.

If you haven’t had a chance to donate, now is the perfect moment to make a meaningful difference. Remember to check with your employer on matching donations, and let’s extend the invite to Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and friends.

Head over to or drop your form and donation off at the front office in an envelope marked “Wish Night.”

2ndGrade 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. December is 2nd grade month. If you are a 2nd grade parent, please, please, please sign up for a day or 3 or 4. We need 4 volunteers per day!   Sign Up HERE.
