    June Newsletter 2017


    Dear Arrowhead Families,


           It’s hard to believe that the 2016-2017 school year is about to end.  We enjoyed meeting and working with the hundreds of children and parents who passed through our doors on a daily basis.  To our students; only a few days remain of the present school year.  At this time, it is fitting that we reflect on the time that has passed.  Think about the many events and learning experiences that have made this year memorable.  Thank you for trying your best on a daily basis to become responsible learners. Take the lessons and experiences as methods to improve, learn, and grow.  Be proud of the fine people you have become and know that we are extremely proud of you!


           To the staff at Arrowhead School: I am thankful for the year which is about to end, the high quality education that has taken place, and for a dedicated and professional faculty.  I am grateful for all of the extra effort you have put into our school to make it such a wonderful place for children to learn and for us to work. 
           As we conclude this school year, I would like to personally thank the following teachers for their dedication, support, and service to our students, staff, and families.  Thank you Mrs. Donofio, Mrs. Kosak-Dougherty, Mrs. Kraus, Ms. Maiale, Mrs. Seibert, and Mrs. Yocum.  It has been a pleasure to work with each of you.  I am so thankful and appreciative for all that you have done to support our students, school, and community!  As you transition back to a familiar building or a new building we wish you the absolute best!  Please keep in touch! We will miss you!   
           A special “thank you” must be given to the Arrowhead Home and School Association for supporting both the students and our teaching staff.  Your enthusiasm and energy were positive examples to all. Further, the funds that you raised to support our many school activities were extremely generous.  It has been a pleasure to work with all of you.  Lastly, thank you to our many parent volunteers who have spent countless hours at school helping to make our school program successful.  Thank you for everything!  You are the best!
