​​Spring Festival - April 1st


Our spring festival is THIS Saturday from 11am to 1:30pm.  The Arizona Science Center’s science on wheels will be joining us in the MPR this year with some fun exhibits for children of all ages.  The prep field will be covered in bounce houses, inflatables, tug of war, a dunk tank, and so much more.  There will also be a 50/50 raffle and raffle baskets including lunches with teachers, a punch card for Athenaeum, a free Skyhawks session, and many more exciting items to try and win.  Pre-sale wristbands, raffle tickets, and lunch vouchers are no longer for sale.  If you missed the deadline of last Friday, you may purchase your wristbands, raffle tickets, and pizza lunches the day of the festival.  Wristbands will be $20.00 each.  

The PSO is in urgent need of volunteers to run this event!  Please help us by clicking on our signup genius http://www.signupgenius.com/go/508094ea5a92fa64-spring1  If you could generously donate an hour of your time, we would greatly appreciate it!

 

Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing all of our Archway families at this year’s spring festival!

​​​Passive Fundraisers

Looking for an easy way to let help the school and PSO raise money? The following fundraisers just take a little bit of time, but have brought in thousands of dollars for our school! Please consider which fundraisers you would like to participate in.


Shop with Scrip 

We will be doing another gift card fundraiser through "Shop with Scrip" after Spring Break!


Box Tops For Education
Please continue to clip, collect, & send in your box tops. (We cannot submit expired tops.) This is an amazing way to earn money for our school, 10 cents per BOXTOP! Please encourage your friends and family to save theirs, also. We will collect again before school is out for summer.

To link your card, log in to frysfrood.com and sign in or select community and then community rewards. Create a new account or click on enroll now to link your card.
