Building Bright Futures Together: A Call to Our Community

We are thrilled to share some incredible news with you all. Through the unwavering dedication and generosity of our Arbor Heights P.T.S.A. and vibrant community, we’ve made significant strides in enhancing the educational experience for our beloved students.

Thanks to your invaluable support, we’ve achieved a remarkable milestone: ensuring that every single one of our preschool through 5th-grade students will now have the opportunity to visit our school library once a week. This accomplishment is more than just a schedule adjustment; it’s an investment in knowledge, curiosity, and lifelong learning. By fostering a love for reading and exploration at such a pivotal age, we’re laying the groundwork for future academic success and personal growth.

But that’s not all – our collective efforts have also enabled us to bolster essential support services for our students. With additional funds, we’ve expanded the presence of our social worker/counselor, providing vital resources and guidance to those who need it most. In times of uncertainty or struggle, having a compassionate advocate by their side can make all the difference in a child’s life.

Furthermore, we’re thrilled to announce an expansion of our instrumental music program, with 80 coveted slots now available for strings and percussion instrument instruction. Music can inspire, uplift, and instill discipline and creativity in our youth. By enriching our curriculum with such opportunities, we’re nurturing well-rounded individuals poised to thrive academically and artistically.

As we reflect on these remarkable achievements, we’re reminded of the incredible spirit and dedication that define our Arbor Heights community. Your unwavering commitment to our students’ success fuels our progress and inspires us to dream bigger, reach higher, and do more for those we serve.

Now, we turn to you, our cherished community, with a humble request. We need your ongoing support to sustain these vital programs and continue our mission of excellence in education. Whether through a direct donation or by participating in the Arbor Heights P.T.S.A.’s upcoming online silent auction in April, every contribution makes a tangible difference in the lives of our students. Let’s reaffirm our commitment to nurturing the next generation of leaders, innovators, and changemakers. Together, let’s ensure that every child who walks through the Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for being a beacon of hope and possibility for our community.  With gratitude – The Arbor Heights students and staff!
