The following is an overview of the rich and diverse programs at Arroyo*. If you would like to volunteer for these programs, please go to our Volunteer Opportunities page to view current volunteer opportunities and signup.
After School Care
On-site before and after school care will be provided by SMART-E in Portable 2B (near Arroyo and Woodland). We encourage all parents who might need care to sign up early to guarantee a spot for this fall. To register or learn more, visit the SMART-E website.
Parent volunteers lead lively discussions about artwork done by great artists and civilizations to enhance students' appreciation of art and its history. Students learn art concepts and techniques used in a masterpiece to create their own original art. In the spring, students have the opportunity to showcase a selected artwork in the Open House Art Show. Additional parent volunteers assist with set up, clean up and supporting students with the creative process. Please sign up to lead or helper in the classroom or learn more about the program by contacting Jana Paquette (email@example.com) or Christen Hanson firstname.lastname@example.org).
Band, Orchestra and Music
SCEF makes music possible at Arroyo! 4th Grade Music Appreciation is taught by Music for Minors in every classroom on Wednesdays. Band and Orchestra are A/B day electives available to 5th graders. Students who have already signed up for this elective have received the following information.
The Makerspace is a teacher-led creative class where students learn competency skills that they can use on their own passion projects. Students visit the makerspace for one trimester as part of the Exploratory Wheel.
After school sports programs for 5th graders are available from Legarza Sports. For more information, visit SCSD Sports.
Clubs & Intramural Programs
Student-led lunchtime clubs are a favorite for Arroyo Eagles! Students create new clubs each year based on their interests. Club ideas are presented to the Principal for approval and need an adult sponsor to be implemented. Last year’s clubs, included art, hair design, friendship and board games. We look forward to introducing new lunchtime clubs and intramural sport programs with your help this year. Visit SignUp.com to volunteer or email@example.com with questions.
All families in SCSD can set up an account and order lunches from our school lunch vendor, Choicelunch, using the ordering site at LunchIsServed. Even if you don’t plan on ordering lunch for your child(ren) right away, it’s best to have an account registered for every child in case they ever forget a lunch or need an extra lunch for any reason. You can choose to load money onto the account when you’re ready to place your orders. The PTA provides Hot Lunch Coordinators who hand out lunches to students once or twice a month. Ask your Room Parent about volunteer needs or contact our Hot Lunch Coordinator, Jennifer Pedrotti, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go Arroyo Eagles! Stock up now on youth and adult Arroyo spirit gear. These items are available only twice a year- now and mid-spring so don't miss out. Shop on our PTAEZ school store by our final fall deadline of Wednesday, September 5th. Orders will be delivered to your child's classroom by the first week of October. Confused about sizing? Be sure to stop by the spirit gear tables during Welcome Week where samples of all sizes and styles will be available to try on. Questions? Contact JennyAGoines@gmail.com.
Our staff appreciation team treats the Arroyo teachers and staff to monthly lunches to say thank you for all they do! Look for sign-up requests in the Eagle Eye Newsletter for these Wednesday lunches and for Staff Appreciation week May 6-10. For more information, contact Angie Jones at email@example.com or Lisa Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
