April Project Playground Update

The Arbor View Elementary School Parent Teacher Council would like to extend our sincerest gratitude for your support of Project Playground over the past three years. We are excited to announce that at the Arbor View PTC meeting on April 24th, we voted to approve the appropriate funds to be used to build our new playground!!! We plan on breaking ground this June and will be completed by the start of the 2018/19 school year. Thank you to everyone in our community who has supported this project; we could not have done it without you! Arbor View PTC works diligently to fund many social, cultural and educational events, and with the generous support from you we will now realize our dream of a new playground this summer. The commitment and support of our community directly benefits the students and will provide a new, barrier-free playground and outdoor classroom for the students at Arbor View Elementary School.

Community Involvement and Volunteer Brochure

One key factor in the success of our school is the fantastic amount of parent and family involvement throughout the year. PTC has prepared and published a Community Involvement and Volunteer Opportunities Brochure. In this brochure, you will find a brief overview of many of the ways you can get involved, from small one-time tasks to long-term committee positions which aligns with the information on the Volunteer page of this website.  Most of the activities and positions listed require multiple volunteers to ensure success, and we never turn down a helping hand!

Our school community loves family participation, so please consider the opportunities listed here and let us know if you are willing to offer some of your time or skills! Please see the Volunteer tab for more information.
