Our Mission is Learning.  Make Today Count!

 

 

Dear Fifth Grade Parents,

Our campers have arrived safely to Science Camp.  The bus ride was uneventful, and everyone did great!  They are now getting settled into their cabins, meeting the counselors and hearing about the plans for the week.  They will be going on a short hike after lunch and then a night hike after dinner.  I will be going up to camp tomorrow to spend the morning and afternoon with our Wildcats.

I know how excited you are for all of our campers – rest assured they will be well taken care of.

Have a great rest of your day,

 

  

Joe McGann

Principal, Arroyo Vista K-8

Our Mission is Learning.  Make Today Count!

 

 

Dear Wildcats,

 

Arroyo Vista K-8 has reported cases of Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease recently among students. Please review the following information for a description of the illness, how it is spread, and what you should do if your child develops hand, foot, and mouth disease.  A hard copy of this letter is going home with elementary students.

 

What causes hand, foot, and mouth disease?

Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease is a common illness of infants and children caused by a virus. It occurs mainly in children under 10 years old, but may occur in older children and adults as well. It is most often seen in the summer or fall, though cases occur year-round. It is not related to foot-and-mouth disease in animals and is only transmitted person to person.

 

What are the symptoms of hand, foot, and mouth disease?

Symptoms of Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease include tiny blisters in the mouth and on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and buttocks. The illness may also include fever, sore throat, or cold symptoms. Mouth blisters may make eating or drinking difficult. An infected person may have none, some, or all of the symptoms.

 

How serious is hand, foot, and mouth disease?

For almost all children the illness is mild. Symptoms are the worst in the first few days but are usually completely gone within a week. Early in the illness some children become dehydrated because of the fever and mouth pain. The Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease virus can cause more severe infection in the form of meningitis or heart infection, but this is very rare. Parents with infected children who are having severe symptoms, as well as persons with weakened immune systems who are exposed to hand, foot, and mouth disease, should contact their health care provider.

 

How does a person get hand, foot, and mouth disease?

The virus is found in the fluids from the nose, throat, skin blisters and stool of an infected child. Another child becomes infected when hands, food, or toys contaminated with the virus are put into the mouth.

 

How long does it take to come down with hand, foot, and mouth disease after a person is exposed?  It usually takes 3-6 days after exposure for symptoms to begin.

 

When is a person with hand, foot, and mouth disease contagious?

A person is most contagious during the first week of illness, but the virus may be shed in the stool for weeks.

 

How can I help prevent the spread of hand, foot, and mouth disease?

• Wash hands well and often with soap and water, especially after wiping a nose or changing a diaper.

• Cover coughs and sneezes and put used tissues into a trash can.

• Clean, rinse, and sanitize toys regularly at child care and after contact with saliva.

• Prevent sharing of food, drinks, and personal items that may touch the mouth, such as eating

utensils, toothbrushes, or towels.

 

What is the treatment for hand, foot, and mouth disease?

Relief of any fever or pain is the only treatment available for hand, foot, and mouth disease. To prevent dehydration, those with fever and mouth pain should drink plenty of fluids.

 

If my child develops hand, foot, and mouth disease, must s/he stay away from child care?

No, as long as s/he does not have fever or any other symptoms that would require exclusion.

GIVING TREE FOR ORANGEWOOD CHILDREN & FAMILY CENTER:  The Arroyo Vista PTA is sponsoring a Giving Tree Toy Drive for Orangewood Children and Family Center. OCFC is a 24-hour emergency shelter care facility, operated and owned by the County of Orange Social Services Agency for children ages birth to 18 years, who have been abused, abandoned, and/or neglected. We will have tags on the tree in the front office for you to come and choose what you would like to donate. There are two gifts on each tag this year, feel free to share a tag with another family and each of you provide one gift. Please purchase the items and place the paper ornament tag on the gift so the center will know which child to present the gift to and return the gift to the large box in the front office. (We are NOT wrapping the gifts this year.) If you take an ornament off the tree and then are unable to purchase the gift, please let Tonya Pierce know ASAP at tonyapierce17@gmail.com. We want all of the children to receive their gifts! The last day to turn in gifts will be December 11.

FALL BACK: Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday morning when you get up or on Saturday night before you go to sleep.  A safety reminder- Many fire departments encourage people to change the batteries in their smoke detectors when they change their clocks because Daylight Saving Time provides a convenient reminder. "A working smoke detector more than doubles a person's chances of surviving a home fire," says William McNabb of the Troy Fire Department in Michigan

 

 

EFC:

For 20 years, EFC has been awarding funds to the Tesoro Family of Schools in the form of teacher grants, funding classroom needs and technology that directly benefit the now more than 5,000 students.

 

This year, a challenge has been made to increase the number of families becoming a FRIEND of EFC.  As part of our 20th year Anniversary, we have the challenge to encourage 350 or more families to donate at least $20.  The date has now been extended until November 5, 2017. 

 

Only 4 days left to go!  Please help us succeed at this 20th Anniversary challenge and support programs for your child’s education!

JOG-A-THON UPDATE

 

Arroyo Vista Family ~ We are up to $36,734 so far.  Thank you SO much to everyone who has sent emails, posted on FB, plugged and supported this fundraiser. We are amazed that we are way more than halfway to our goal, but we still have a little more than $18,000 to go! If you haven’t spread the word about this important fundraiser, it’s not too late.

 

FRIDAY, September 29 is the LAST DAY to turn in money (to the office, your student's teacher or online at www.pledgestar.com/arroyovistapta) to qualify for prizes (sharks, raffle tickets, Glow Party admission and Carnival tickets)!

 

We will be doing the raffle drawing at next Wednesday's assembly before school and the Jog-A-Thon will be on October 6.

 

 


ATTENTION MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS:  Since the PTA funds programs for the middle school as well we are asking for your help.  Please look for the bright orange flyer coming home with your student this week. There are extra copies in the office if the flyer doesn't make it all the way home to you.  The top earning middle school student will receive 100 carnival tickets!  Please put all money earned along with the completed orange form in an envelope and place it in the box in the front office by Friday, September 29.  Please let Tonya Pierce (tonyapierce17@gmail.com) know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!

 

 

YEARBOOKS:  Early Bird pricing has been extended to October 6!  Make sure to order your yearbooks now, this is the lowest price of the year.  Price will go up on October 7.  Purchase your yearbook at http://community.pictavo.com.  Please create an account before you purchase.  Our school code is: 70093

WELCOME NEW ARROYO VISTA FAMILIES:  We would like to formally welcome all new Arroyo Vista families to the school!  We are sure you will find an embracing, supportive, and exciting environment here at Arroyo Vista Elementary and Middle School.  Trisha Coy, fellow parent and owner of FreshlyPressed.co, is sponsoring a “New Family Meet and Greet” at the first PTA Association Meeting on September 20th. Please join us at 8:15am in the Middle School MPR for breakfast treats, coffee, and some other fun surprises!  We look forward to helping you connect with other families, answering any questions you may have, and providing you valuable information about all the wonderful events that your children will be able to participate in throughout the school year.   Mark those calendars for September 20! 

 

 

PTA FALL FUNDRAISER INFORMATION:  The PTA is excited to announce that this year's Fall Fundraiser is once again the JOG-A-THON! This means we will not be selling anything and 100% of all money earned will go directly to the PTA to fund valuable programs such as Brainstorm (STEM), Meet the Masters, K-3 music, field trips, assemblies, middle school grants and so much more! Since we will not be paying 50% of our proceeds to an outside company, we hope that we can reach our school goal of raising $55,000 this year! The Jog-a-thon will be on Friday, October 6th so mark your calendars.

We need your help to make this fundraiser a success! Look for the white Jog-a-thon envelopes coming home this Friday and read through all of the details. Inside the envelope you will find information on how to donate online (so your family and friends near and far can donate) as well as information on how your child can earn their prizes. There will be 5 turn-in days in the mornings before school in the elementary library from 7:30-8:15 am. Please plan to get to school EARLY so your child is not late to class, the lines tend to be very long! These turn-in days will be the only ways for your child to earn their prizes so don’t miss out!  The following are the five prize turn-in dates:    
                                          
Tuesday, September 19

Thursday, September 21

Tuesday, September 26

Thursday, September 28

Friday, September 23

 

 

BONUS SHARK OPPORTUNITY: Everyone can earn a bonus shark by simply registering on Pledgestar and sending seven e-mails to friends and family. (See green sheet inside the envelope for directions on how to register on Pledgestar.) Once you have sent the e-mails, fill out and sign the pink "Bonus Shark" sheet and turn it in at our first prize turn-in day, THIS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 from 7:30-8:15 am in the elementary library. Don't miss out on this chance to earn a bonus shark! 


ATTENTION MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS:  Since the PTA funds programs for the middle school as well we are asking for your help.  Please look for the bright orange flyer coming home with your student this week. There are extra copies in the office if the flyer doesn't make it all the way home to you.  The top earning middle school student will receive 100 carnival tickets!  Please put all money earned along with the completed orange form in an envelope and place it in the box in the front office by Friday, September 29.  Please let Tonya Pierce (tonyapierce17@gmail.com) know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!

Dear Arroyo Vista Middle School Families,

 

Way to go Arroyo Vista MS! You don’t fool around!  We are off to an amazing start to our Step It Up fundraiser. We had over 199 families register over 230 students and send out 3,042 emails to family and friends last night and we have already raised over $6,100 online in just 24 hours.  We have some individual students who have raised $300 or more online in the first night.  It’s that easy.

 

Because of this amazing success, we have EXTENDED the deadline to send your 10+ emails for one more day, and your child will still qualify for all of the SUCCESS SHEET prizes!  If you have not already done so, please click the link below to send out your emails. The entire process should take less than 10 minutes.

 

Please be aware that NO records are kept and these emails will not be used for ANYTHING other than this fundraiser.  We hope you will help us with this important fundraiser that helps make the Middle School experience a memorable one. The funds we raise benefit ALL STUDENTS, including yours!

Thank you in advance for your support of our students,

Dear Arroyo Vista Middle School Families,

 

Our Middle School ASB fundraiser starts today and we need your help.  We know that parents and students are busy, and that is why we want to make the ASB fundraiser as EASY and SUCCESSFUL as possible.  Our entire STEP IT UP fundraiser can be completed in TEN MINUTES or less!  Really!  We need your help to support Arroyo Vista MS by completing the first night email campaign “Homework Assignment” that students will bring home from the assembly today.

 

To get our fundraiser off to a great start, we are asking families to REGISTER and SEND OUT AT LEAST 10 EMAILS TONIGHT to friends and family, enlisting their support.  Don’t forget to ADD YOURSELF so that you, too, can donate online.  All donations are processed via PayPal, so they are safe and secure, and the emails you send will only be used for this fundraiser (not saved for any other purpose).

 

While you have until the end of our fundraiser to raise money and qualify for the various prizes and events, this First Night Email Homework Assignment will not only earn your child some fun BONUS PRIZES, but will help us get off to an amazing start!  The PTA Jog-A-Thon, the largest PTA fundraiser is on October 6.   

 

Please register at: www.stepitupkids.com/arroyovista92688

 

We look forward to an incredible turn out, and thank you for making a difference in the lives of our students.

Ask your child to circle or highlight the classrooms on the map for you.  Since this is an evening for parents, we ask that students not attend as we have no supervision.

School Loop is a different application than the Portal.  It is available to secondary level parents and students only.  Parents are encouraged to use both applications.  The Portal may be accessed at any time during the school year and parent and student accounts only need to be established once as they rollover with updated student data each year.  Don’t have a portal account? Contact the school office when it reopens and request the information needed to create an account.

 The PTA would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our Arroyo Vista families for making our 4th annual carnival the most successful one yet!  We grossed almost $49,000 this year making our net total $25,246! That's over $3000 more than last year! Whether you helped donate snacks and drinks, donated to our grade level baskets, let us borrow your equipment, helped us find sponsors and silent auction items, signed up to volunteer at the carnival, helped with the set-up and cleanup or just supported by coming and buying tickets and bidding on items in the silent auction, WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!  We love this village that we have here at Arroyo Vista and we can't wait to do it all again next year.

6TH GRADE PARENTS: Immunization Requirement for students entering 7th Grade. In order to avoid long lines at orientation, current 6th grade families should to bring a copy of their updated Immunization Record to the office prior to the end of the year if you haven’t already.


To enroll in classes for 7th grade, your child must be fully immunized or have a permanent or temporary medical exemption on file with your child’s school. Per state law, 7th grade students cannot have personal beliefs exemptions. 

To avoid the back-to-school rush, we suggest you make plans prior to the end of the school year for your child to receive the necessary immunizations, or speak with your physician regarding permanent or temporary medical exemptions.  Only a licensed Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) may provide a medical exemption. Included in the required immunizations is the Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis booster required for 7th grade. The booster may have been given any time after the 7th birthday. 

 

Please bring your child’s Immunization Record and/or specific medical exemptions from your physician, to your child’s school health office as proof of immunization.  School staff will photocopy the Immunization Record and enter the information in the district student data base.  Your child will not be able to attend classes in 7th grade without proof of immunization or medical exemption on file with us for all required immunizations.  For more information regarding the Tdap or additional school immunization requirements for 7th grade you may visit http://www.shotsforschool.org/k-12 .  This site addresses immunizations required for all 7th grade students including those who had a personal beliefs exemption in 6th grade or are new to the state.
