Holiday Shop November 27-30, 2018

We’re excited to announce the Holiday Gift Shop, starting November 27th to November 30th!
We will be open in the mornings at 8, over lunch for your children to come shop without you, and from 3-4 in the afternoon on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! We will be open at 8 AM on Friday morning for any last minute purchases! Look for more information and shopping envelopes to come home this Friday!
Send checks or cash on your students envelope and we will make sure they come home with any change they have left over! For example, if you send a $20 check, we will give them change in cash, so no need to do the math ahead of time!

Love and Logic Conference in Arvada, CO

I have great, wonderful, amazing children; whom I want to be happy and healthy and, unfortunately, they didn’t come with a manual or upper division class. So, I am taking the day off from work and attending this conference. I want to know what the people who have studied children and parenting have to say. I hope you will join me.

Thursday, November 29, from 8:30 to 2:30

4th and 5th can compete!


Walk to School Day (Success!)

First of all, thank you, Elise Waln, for partnering with Van Arsdale to host our first annual Walk to School Day. This was part of the safe routes to school initiative that established this partnership. Although we postponed d/t weather, the event was a great success. Kids participated by walking with pride and were greeted with happy celebrating faces as they arrived at school. Supporting kiddos in their healthy lifestyles is critical to their life long healthy habits.


Thank yous also to:

Ms Chapla and the Van Arsdale staff, for always supporting events and striving to make Van Arsdale a healthy happy learning space!

Arvada FPD & emergency First Response teams for coming to our day.

Senator Rachel Zenzinger (@Zenzinger_AtoZ) · Twitter for supporting our local school and helping us have a successful day.

Thank you to Katie Ellis from Apex Rec District for putting together a table and supporting our healthy habits and safe practices!
Thank you to all of the volunteers and parents who chalked sidewalks, walked kiddos en masse to school and made this a special day for our students.

Also, thank you to our community partners who graciously donated goods (with a change of date and all!)!
