I hope everyone that was able to attend the Carnival last weekend
enjoyed themselves as much as I did. I want to thank the PTSA and all
the volunteers that made last Saturday a special event.
Tonight is the Ice Cream Social that will wrap up another Young Author’s
Conference. Thanks to all the teachers, students and parents that put
in the effort to produce some outstanding pieces of literature. I also
want to acknowledge Ms. Napolitan for putting together another
I-Denta-Kid will be here tomorrow for those that returned their
packets. Please continue to check the Lost and Found for misplaced
coats. Our collection grows and grows!
Please remember there is no school on Monday in observance of Memorial
Day. Have a safe weekend.

Please allow us to thank you for the time you have donated to the school
this year. A large part of the success we have as a school is due to
the time you spend working with the children of the Arbor Heights
community. Join us on June 7th from 11:30 – 1:00 for the annual
Volunteer Luncheon. As always, the luncheon promises to have tasty
salads and desserts. If you have volunteered your time this year (in
the classroom, doing projects at home, driving for field trips,
Fall/Spring Clean-up Days…), please call the school office (933-5350)
and let us know if you can or cannot attend. We look forward to seeing
you on June 7th! Remember, this is a function for ADULTS ONLY.
The Carnival Committee
Thank you to everyone for making our Carnival and Rummage sale a huge
success it was really a group effort with many people donating their
time and energy (and rummage!). Thanks, also, to the staff at Arbor
Heights for all of your support. Mari Davis

Playground Work Party Update:

Saturday, 6/9 from 10:00 – 3:00 p.m. – Seattle Works Day Volunteers (75

be supervising their work. A hospitality volunteer is needed to set up
coolers of pop/water and put up a sign thanking them all. Media will be
showing up as well.
Sunday, 6/10 from 10:00 a.m. – Parent volunteers will be building the
border higher around the base of the playscape, adding a ramp and then
spreading the chips down.
I will be calling parents who signed up earlier to volunteer on the
playground. Not as many volunteers will be needed this weekend due to
the Seattle Works Day group, but we are planning a late summer workday
to add landscaping as well. Please call Janet at 935-7753 if you want
