We would like to wish all our Arcola community a Happy Holiday Season!!

In Response to our Christmas Concert

To our Arcola community,

I want to thank all those in the community who attended our second annual ‘Christmas with a Twistmas’ concert yesterday.  The hard work and talent of both our students and staff was evident in the variety of performances that entertained our community.  Our Christmas concert committee under the direction of Ms. Calibaba worked hard to organize and provide an exciting concert. 

For those of you who attended the evening concert, it is unfortunate for your children and our community to have experienced such a terrible and troubling event from a few adults who decided to bring their outside issues into our school.  It is unacceptable for adults to display behavior in our school that contradicts our values of Kindness, Fairness and Respect and put our community at risk with such foolish and unsafe behavior. We do not tolerate actions such as these from our students and nor will we allow adults fighting in our school as well.  These actions will not overshadow the positive performance of our students and your children. 

I am thankful for the response of our community after these events at the concert in recognizing the positive and hard work that our staff and students put in each and every day.  We appreciate your support and wish you and your family safe and happy holidays.

We are currently updating our website to provide ongoing and important school information about events and school programming to the Arcola community.  Our monthly newsletter will be attached as a PDF document on the 'School Newsletter' link and our calendar of events will provide information about daily programming.  We will also be posting our monthly hot lunch menu on the 'Hot Lunch Program' link.  

We thank you for your patience as we work to improve our communication to the community through our website. Please continue to click on links as they will be updated over the next couple of months.

Hello Everyone

I hope November has been kind to you and yours.   At the Early Years Family Centres we have been able to introduce the centres to many new families and we look forward to sharing this wonderful resource to more families in December.

Please find below the link to the December 2014 Early Years Family Centre Newsletter / Calendar and program posters.  December brings a few schedule changes regarding open hours as well as few new opportunities for families including baby signing and seasonal projects.


Please feel free to share this information to the families within your circles.

With Gratitude for your continued support,
